    Ok so I'm trying to install vista ultimate 64 bit, and when boot camp tells me to insert the disk, I did, then It restarted and when booting, it came to a black screen with white text saying:


    Select cdrom boot type:

    The problem is that I can't type a thing!

    Does anybody know what to do here?

    Might not help, but occasionally when I recently installed Vista 64 (or Windows 7), after running Boot Camp setup where it asks you to insert the Windows DVD to continue, I would get a black screen after startup. It would sit there for forever. Holding down the power button (force shut down) and starting back up again fixed it for some reason. :confused:

    EFI issue maybe?

    I'm not sure if it's an efi issue or what but plugging in a USB keyboard does nothing.
    I also did a force shutdown but it just returns to the same screen.
