    Ok so i had some problems with my windows install and i wanted to update to Mountain Lion. I wiped my entire hard drive, deleted all the partitions, and started fresh with one partition. I got Mountain Lion installed perfectly. Heres where the problem starts. I started with editing the plist to make bootcamp allow USB install. (im running an Imac 2007). The Superdrive only works when it wants to and its easier just to not use it at all. I then opened bootcamp assistant and checked all three boxes (created usb disk, download support drivers, and install windows 7). I used my handy .iso of my win7 x64 disk and bootcamp created my usb disk, downloaded the support drivers then asked me how big to make my partition. i choose the size and clicked continue. Bootcamp partitioned my drive just fine and then restarted. And then my computer sticks at the apple logo (with no spinning wheel). i let it sit over night and no difference. so i just powered off and when i powered on i get the *no boot disk -- insert bootable disk and press any key*. The USB flash drive is in the computer but its not showing up after a restart and holding alt. i can boot into OS X just fine but not get windows to install. The bootcamp partition shows up on my OSX desktop with no files. Also the USB disk shows up named WININSTALL with the install files and support drivers on it.

    Thanks in advance!
