    Hi Guys :)

    I've just bought an older 27" iMac, 3.06GHz, 4GB RAM, 2TB HDD, ATI Graphics..

    And i'm trying to install windows 7 x64, ultimate edition.

    I can install it fine, but when I try and boot from the Windows partition, it gets to the windows startup/splash screen, then just goes completely black.

    I'm not technology-inept, and usually figure out stuff like this - but i'm not too sure this time!

    If someone could help me out here it'd be much appreciated.

    Thanks :)

    Thanks, but the article states this is only for an upgrade from vista, not a fresh install like i'm doing. Anyone else?

    I appreciate the help though :)

    It doesn't matter. The problem is in the gpu drivers themselves, and gpu drivers are independent of OS upgrades.

    Give it a try.
