    I recently replace my bad DVD drive is it went bad in my macpro intel 2.8 quadcore

    I am trying to install win 7 bootcamp but it won't work.

    I have a trial of Parallels and that works so I know its not the disk.

    I have tried bootcamp on my new MBP and it seemed to work well got to windows screen.

    I have several internal drives on my SL and ML

    I ejected all of the drives except my original drive which I wiped and re installed SL and then partitioned this in bootcamp.

    Bootcamp won't let me install the updates and every time I have tried to restart with bootcamp the computer hangs on the apple logo.

    also pressed option boot up from windows and get the no entry sign.

    I have tried this method 15 times and it is the same each time.

    I have attempted this also with ML (with the updates files on a usb disk)and

    managed to get to the no bootable device screen and that's it.

    I have tried to make a iso and could not get that to work (converting .cdr to iso)

    Could some one please help!.

    Here are the official instructions. There are a lot of possible compatibility problems you could look into.

    I've been through boot camp installation several times and I have no idea what you mean by this:

    Do you mean Bootcamp Assistant won't let you make the Windows driver disc?
