Can't start Windows

07 July 2010 - 03:25 PM


Just bought a new Imac in the last week and am already having trouble getting Windows 7 (which installed perfectly on my '08 Macbook) to get going.

I install everything without any problem at all, during the install the Mac restarts a few times - no problem. The issue is, once the install is finished (when i have just set the time and date ready to begin) Windows says 'Welcome' and then 'Shutting Down'... I assume ready for one final restart. When it loads back up it says "press any key to boot from disc" which i leave for it to boot straight into Windows. But it doesn't. It does nothing. Even if i try to press a key to go back in to the disc it does nothing. If i manually reboot using the option key and try loading windows it will just sit there with a flashing underscore on the same black screen. (I seem to remember it doing this for a while the first time i booted windows on my macbook, with the exception, this one never loads)

I though my problem was to do with my bluetooth keyboard/ mouse not doing anything due to the lack of drivers but i've tried with a USB keyboard and mouse to no avail.

On my 3rd install now and it's getting a little frustrating. Any suggestions?
