I hate to type a short snappy post but,
How do I do this?
You could search first, as there are lot of threads around here about installing Windows 7.
The problem is, there are not official Windows 7 drivers yet (Apple seems to be still working on them).
1. Buy VMWare Fusion
3. Set up new VM with Win7
I've had a search but I couldn't find any step-by-step instructions on how to do it.
I'm not too keen on virtualisation, I'd rather dual-boot to get the best from gaming and other apps.
Have a look in Applications/Utilities, there is a program there called Boot Camp Assistant. Run this and there is a button Print Installation and Setup Guide.
Boot Camp is really only designed for Vista or XP at the moment. But it works on W7 if you follow the instructions, and if you have an external monitor plugged in to the iMac monitor port.
1. command + space to open spotlight
2. type boot camp in search
3. run boot camp
4. select partition size you want for boot camp, click next
5. insert install dvd
6. click next (install)
7. iMac will reboot
8. install windows as you would on a pc
Tells you how to fix the black screen issue you'll run in to.
Also, if you only have the Magic Mouse and wireless keyboard, you'll need a wired keyboard/mouse to install. But after you get it installed you can use your wireless Mac stuff.
