    I have yet another issue with the 27 inch imac. I've tried to bootcamp with windows 7. everything goes fine till it tried to finish installing (like giving it a name, etc) At that point it says shows the Windows logo then the monitor turns off. It is running as I can push the capslock and it turns on and such.

    I thought it might've been because no bootcamp drivers. So I loaded it up in VMware and got them installed. Still no screen once it passes the Windows 7 logo. There isn't even any backlighting

    The install as fine as I can load it in VMWare just fine

    I realize they don't officially support it, but I've installed it twice on my mbp with no issues.

    What? Boot Camp installs Windows 7 just fine. It's probably some sort of driver issue with the new 27". Windows is probably hunting for a driver and maybe installing one that's incompatible.
