    I have an iMac early 2008 and I have recently upgraded to Mountain Lion, and now when I want to install Windows7 on Bootcamp i just dont work.

    The screen is black with a dos prompt blinkin and the Windows7 installation won´t start. I have the latest version of Bootcamp 5.0.0 (444) that comes with the latest osx update..

    I hope someone here knows what i´m doing wrong. Please help me :)

    Which version of Widowz7, 32 or 64bit? 64bit isn't supported by Bootcamp for the 2008 iMac. There is a work around out there but I can't remember where it is (I know it works because I used it a couple of years ago on my 2008, I just lost the info).
