    Hi all, yesterday I got my very first macbook pro and I am loving it. However, whenever I try to bootcamp windows 7 the installation always gets stuck at "extracting files". It can never get past 0% and throws up an error. Has anyone had this problem before/can you suggest a way to fix it?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Yeah I've had this problem when I burned an offical windows 7 iso to a sony dvd-r disc. I then burned the iso to a no name brand dvd-rw or dvd+rw, I forget, and it installed just fine.
