    I'm trying to install Vista on my iMac in order to play some games, however whenever I insert the disk I'm taken to a screen that's black all but a single flashing underscore in the top-left corner. The keyboard and mouse are completely unresponsive and I have no idea what to do =/
    Any ideas?

    If I remember, that is just before the Vista install, kind of like the blue screen start up but this time just a black screen with blinking curser. How long did you wait before turning your Mac off thinking it had crashed?

    Must've been between 3 and 5 minutes I'd say

    Have you partitioned the drive using the Boot Camp setup assistant?
