    I have an iMac7,1 (first alu iMac) and when I try to install Windows 7 x64 the DVD hangs on install whether I try the EFI Boot or the normal one. The 32-bit version has no problems. Any ideas?

    Yes. It is a known issue if you are not using Boot Camp.

    Follow this guide. I got Win 7 x86_64 to install on my Macbook Pro by following it. Newer Macs do not have the same problems, apparently.
