    I've had this issue for ages now and not got to the bottom of it, having a boring sunday so going to try and get windows working to play a few games. Anyway the problem is when i try to install windows it gets stuck on the screen which says 'setup is starting windows'

    Another problem is when i restart my mac it doesn't restart it powers down etc but the hard drive just keeps spinning and it never reboots i have to force it.

    All the threads i have found on setup is starting windows have not proven helpful, i've got a mbp c2d and the windows is legit.

    Any ideas macworld?

    Both problems could be because of a defective/corrupted hdd. Try cloning your stuff to another disk and try again with that disk. If it works, then youll need to replace your hdd. But thats just my first thought. Did you follow standard procedures? Repair permissions etc? This topic could be helpful:
