    Hey everyone,

    Am having an issue installing boot camp on my new iMac. I have a Windows 7 iso (32 and 64 bit combined) ready to put on a USB stick, but every time I try it tells me it only accepts 64 bit versions of Windows 7 and above. Anyone else having this issue? I know my copy is 64 bit but it still fails to recognize.

    Thanks for the help!

    Do you have Fusion Drive?

    Sorry, forgot to mention... I have the 1TB Fusion drive, which to my understanding is fine for Boot Camp. The issue is that it keeps saying it can only install 64 bit versions of Windows 7 and above.

    I just installed W7 last night without any issues but I used my DVD copy and an external. Double check and make sure your ISO is really the 64bit or see if they have a 64bit only install. It might be that BC is seeing the combined one you have as only a 32bit version.
