    I've installed Windows 7 on my macbook worked perfectly fine. I used the same disk and tried installing on my iMac. Yes I'm using bootcamp btw. And after the final installation process it restarts like its supposed to, but it boots in this blank screen with nothing on it.
    What am I supposed to do after that phase?
    As for my macbook, it just works.

    If anybody had or has this problem it would be greatly appreciated if you help me out.
    Thanks

    Go to the "Windows on Mac" forum to find out the solution. Do not start a new thread on this topic please.

    Black screen is due to the video driver you have to delete the driver. Also you can not use Bluetooth KB and mouse during installation. The bluetooth KB and Magic mouse works fine after you have completed the installation.

    I am running W7x64 on my new 27" Imac with wireless KB and Magic mouse.

    Plug in an external monitor to your display port and you'll see the rest of your windows 7 installation. Then your video driver will be updated and your main display will come back on. This was easier IMO than the deleting the driver trick.
