    I've got a 2010 Macbook Pro 13" and I'm attempting to dual boot with Windows 7 32-bit Home Premium on a 20gb partition. The problem is, I can't get it to install. Evey time it hangs on the "Completing Installation" phase after the reboot and from what I can tell, everything but the CPU fan stops. I've looked around and tried everything.
    I tried the USB keyboard solution that I saw on a forum it didn't work, I don't have anything other than the power cable connected. Does anybody have any ideas? Thanks.:)

    Well I'm not very familiar with Windows so all I could do was a simple search and look for solutions you haven't mentioned explicitly in your post. I do know you said "I've looked around and tried everything.", so please forgive if you're aware of these.

    RAM Amount

    Video driver

    Two partitions needed

    You may need more than 20 GB for installation. Try 30 maybe?
