    see this thread:

    I thought I would not have a problem installing Windows 7 64 bit on the MID 2011 27" IMAC computer after OWC upgraded it with 2 SSD for a total of:

    1TB HDD

    desire this config:

    SSD Lion

    According to that thread ( and several others + now my own experience being unsuccessful installing W7 64bit it appears to be a potential deal breaker for me. is there any work around....

    yes, it is the dreaded "flashing cursor" with black screen

    Well according to that thread the OP fixed it by using SSD bootcamp first then SSD Lion ... did you try that config?

    i guess im not clear on his fix

    i have 3 hard drives

    120GB OWC Mercury EXTREME Pro 6G SSD (6Gb/s)
    1TB Serial ATA1; 7200 rpm (stock from apple)
    120GB OWC Mercury EXTREME Pro 6G SSD (6Gb/s)

    OWC installed Lion on SSD

    i do not tear imacs apart so just trying to figure out a work around to get W7 installed.
