    I think the newest models only officially support 7, which is far superior to the other two anyhow.

    Win7

    which model is it as with a 21.5 imac you need to have a usb pen drive or sdcard in the slot to actually get the mac display drivers & keyboard drivers working...

    not great...i found out the hard way after 4 installs....then i thought google would be my friend...

    Win 7 is very good. Don't use an older OS unless you have a specific reason.

    I don't understand why? Is this a problem for all iMacs or was just something you were having problems with

    After installing Windows 7, insert the Snow Leopard disc to install drivers.
