Just got the new iMac quad core i7, purchased Windows 7 Home Premium and having trouble getting it to install using Boot Camp it goes through all the steps I partitioned 350 gig then formatted went thorough the install steps, it reboots and finishes the install, then reboots but nothing happens its just a black screen, any help.
Thanks

apparently its a problem with the graphics drivers, Windows 7 is outputing to the minidisplay port instead of the built in screen.
If you have a moniter and the required cabling if you plug that in to your iMac that should also solve the issue: just continue the installation on the external moniter, and unplug it when done.
Cheers.
