I finally got up the nerve to install Windows on our 2007 iMac with Boot Camp. We made the switch to MAC four years ago and have enjoyed the stability, ease of use and everything else that Mac is. The only thing missing was the ability for my husband to continue using his Microsoft Flight Simulator. Hes a pilot and none of the other games come close to FS10. We tried X-Plane, but not the same experience for him. Even with several calls to AppleCare, it still took me 4 install attempts to get it right because for some reason, no one ever tells you ALL the steps involved. On the 4th attempt I figured it out and my install is so clean. Ive never had this good an experience with Windows on any PC, not even the new fancy ones! So for anyone out there that is struggling, or keeps getting that annoying black screen after they have installed Windows, heres what I found out. First off, my Mac is running Mac OS X 10.6.2 and Boot Camp 3.0.1 and Windows XP SP3 Home Edition. 1. Open Boot Camp and partition your HD. Windows needs room to breathe as well as room for any other programs you will be adding so give it enough space. To be safe I added an extra 20 Gigs to what my programs called for, so I chose 51 Gigs. 2. Boot Camp will instruct you to insert your Windows install disc and you will go to the gross blue Windows install screen. 3. Follow the on screen prompts agreeing to the terms and installing Windows. 4. The next screen asks what partition you are choosing always pick the one that says C: Partition3 <BOOTCAMP>[FAT32]. 5. Then it will ask what format you want to use: NTFS or FAT. If your partition size is over 32 Gigs, you must choose NTFS. This screen gives you several options choose Format the partition using the NTFS file system. Do not choose the option to convert the partition or the "<Quick> method. 6. Windows will now load the files. Heres where a lot of corruption can take place At this point when it is finished it will prompt you to remove any floppy discs (which I couldnt since my eject button was inoperable), so as soon as your Mac shuts down to reboot you must hold down the Option key. This way it will reboot to the screen that will allow you to eject the disc. If you dont eject the disc it will restart the Windows setup again and it will corrupt your install even if you stop it when they give you that choice. So, hold down the Option key after it shuts down and it will reboot to a grey screen that shows your Macintosh HD, Windows HD, and the Windows CD. Click on the Windows CD to highlight it and then press your eject button and remove the install disc. 7. Click the Windows HD icon to boot into Windows. You will be taken to the Windows Setup and youll need to fill in your name, set your time zone, etc. 8. As soon as all that is done, it will finally go to the Windows desktop. Now, load your Mac OS X Snow Leopard installation disc. The Windows Installer will now install the Windows version of Boot Camp and it will install all the drivers so your sound, audio, video etc. will work. 9. When that is complete open Internet Explorer and go to http://support.apple.com/kb/DL996 (for 32 bit WindowsXP) and download and run updated file. It will automatically open the Windows Installer and update Boot Camp and all your drivers. 10. Now you are ready to install whatever AntiVirus software you have (and you really need to do this your C: partition isnt a MAC anymore). And thats it. Very simple, very clean. Ive never used Windows before when it worked this cleanly and this quickly. Oh and let me add that the MS Flight Sim never worked this good on any PC we had before. My husband is ecstatic. Good Luck you all.
