    Hi, all
    I installed a SSD on my macbook pro, moved the original HDD to the CD bay.
    moved my iOS and application to SSD, successfully.
    The pain came then
    Try to install WIN 7 on SSD or HDD, all failed.
    I install rEFIT, created bootcamp partition on SSD(share with iOS), boot from rEFIT, try install WIN7 from USB, no luck, go message "unsupported when loading bootmgr.efi"
    Try install win7 from external DVD-ROM, black screen, no luck.
    Then I created a bootcamp partition on HDD, try USB Flash and DVD-rom, failed again.
    I even created a small partition on my HDD, copy WIN7 installation file to it, try install from there, same message "unsuported when loading bootmgr.efi"
    My USB drive is FAT32, no mistake.
    HDD partition is FAT(windows) too.
    Please help!

    Hmm, I had no problems just following the basic bootcamp prompts. Worked like a charm.
