Hello everyone,

I have a Mac Pro, and I warn to install also windows 7. I just had add a raid card. In total I have 8 tera, the 6 are for the Mac raid. The other 2, for windows. The problem is that I had installed windows, but I had to erase it because every time I switch to windows a black screen appear.
But now, I can't install windows using boot amp because I don't have the option to install Windows, it says that I can't do it because I have installed the Raid Card.

Thanks you,

No, I want to install windows on the 2 tera, who are not on a raid. It is a striped raid.

May be don't use bootcamp.

1) Insert the Windows 7 disk
2) Reboot and holding C
3) Install Windows 7 from the disk straight away

Most likely you will need to remove the partition in your 2T HDD and crate a new partition. You can do all this during the setup process.

After the Win 7 installation. It's your choice to install the bootcamp software of not.
