    Hey Guys,
    I wanted to install Windows 7 on my iMac 24" (3.06 GHz, 4GB RAM, 8800GS)
    but everytime I boot up from my CD, it is showing me the black screen with a white flashing cursor. I don't know whats wrong, because 6 months earlier I installed it without any problems (and deinstalled for more space on my HD) , but now (BTW: I've upgraded to 10.7 Lion) I'm having this awkward problem?
    Any ideas?
    thx

    Must be because of lion. I would have said downgrade to snow leopard then see if you can install windows on it.

    Or because you are trying to install windows more times than it is supposed to. You probably have only one download on windows and you are attempting to do this a second time. Maybe that's why :apple:
