    Bootcamp install on the new Imac

    Apple tech support said that the issue of the 21.5" iMac hanging at the grey screen and the "Disk Read Error" are outside of the scope of support and that they do not support booting into Windows, they only support Boot Camp Assistant and installing Boot Camp drivers if you are able to boot into Windows. They suggested that I contact my Apple sales rep. My Apple pre-sales engineer is stopping by Monday. I'll let you know what he says about this problem. Good Luck -Tom

    Bootcamp install on the new Imac

    The media is not the issue. I'm using XP Pro Volume License Media direct from Microsoft. I've also tried multiple versions including XP Pro with SP2 Volume License Media and XP Pro with SP3 volume license media. XP is not the issue. I've tried Windows 7 Enterprise x64 and Windows 7 Enterprise x86. Same issue with any media. Boot Camp 3.1 does NOT resolve this issue. I'm waiting to hear back from Apple today. I'll let you know what I find out.

    Bootcamp install on the new Imac

    I am having the same bootcamp issue with a batch of 14 new 21.5" iMac's trying to load Windows XP with volume license media. A disk read error occurred Press ctrl+alt+del to restart or they hang at a blank grey screen. I also have a case open with Apple technical support. Looks like a problem with Apple's new boot ROM to me. Very frustrating! -Tom
