    Received my iMac yesterday. Attempted to put Windows7 Ultimate on it.
    After install, whenever I boot all I get is a black screen with a blinker cursor/dash in the upper left. What is this? Can my Win7 find it's boot file?
    Under OS X, I can see the partition will all the install files, yet I can't boot into the system.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi,

    Did you format the drive correctly during install. I had my installation go funny yesterday.

    I ran Boot Camp App to partition my drive.
    Rebooted with Win 7 Disk in drive.
    Selected Drive Options (Advanced) while Bootcamp drive selected
    Clicked Format, OK
    Clicked NEXT. All worked well.

    Only problem with mine is that it has been delivered with a fly inside the screen that continues to move around inside the screen!

    Wow. That's really weird. Anyway, yeah, I think tomorrow I'll keep trying to get it to work and I'll take it slow this time.

    Thanks.

    Is it a Chinese fly?
