    Ok one more question about the iMac. I just tried installing Windows 7 ultimate via bootcamp. It installs fine but it won't boot after the install. It will boot into safe mode but after the windows loading screen in normal boot monitor shuts off and it wont go any father. I tried searching and couldn't find anything on this. Anybody know what might be happening? This is very puzzling.

    iMac is i3 3.06 stock and windows 7 is x64

    Ive had similar issues with installing Windows x64 due to driver issues and whatnot. Im not sure what maybe be affecting the bootup, but consider installing the x32 version and see if itll boot up. I know you will be limited by ram on x32 but its worth a shot.

    From my experiences of trying to get x64 to work properly, I have many issues on Apple forums regarding it, thought this isnt saying that others might not have any issues.
