Instead go to device manager and update the driver and point it to the folder you extracted. Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files Hope this information is helpful. Apparently this is related to a usb3 monitor utility that gets installed with the normal intel setup package. If it is unable, then you can install x32 version of Windows 7. I have tried the traditional bootcamp method already with no luck. Turn off your machine, then unplug all of your external devices except the keyboard and mouse, and also if you have ethernet running to your machine.
The main problem is that, when I load the installer disc and restart the computer, I get nothing but a blank, black screen with a blinking cursor in the upper left hand corner. Once I did that, it worked. I finally gave up on it, and now play the game in Windows 7. Thanks, but that solution I believe is only for the 21. After the installation, Your computer will restart automatically.
Step 6: Windows should now be installing on your computer. After it completes, click the Finish button to exit out of the Boot Camp installer window. Just had to have patience before rebooting. Plug the power back in and boot up into the install of windows. Unless someone's got a genuine idea of how to get the Windows 7 installer to run on my particular model iMac in Boot Camp, this issue has otherwise become a dead horse. I reinstalled Mountain Lion from scratch this afternoon.
I have tried the traditional bootcamp method already with no luck. I might just go the Parallels Desktop way even though I am not a fan of virtual machines since I feel like their performance is usually bad. It was supposed to be so easy. Might be a long shot, but hat's all I can think of; let me know if you want to try it maybe I can provide more technical details. Will your method work for me? But I'm not entirely sure how.
Using Boot Camp Assistant to Install Windows on Your Mac. This is where I ran into another problem. I create the partition, reboot using Boot Disk Assistant and after about 10 secs of a white screen watch the blinking cursor. I think it depends what game you want to play. Also it may not6 be that simple as I try to use the external drive for one more time and that didn't work the second time, so I switched back to the internal one and it worked a treat this time.
This time, after the BootCamp driver installation, I was about to click the restart button when I noticed a message at the bottom that a driver was installing. Decided that Boot Camp is for you? Couldn't find the source of the problem anywhere. Not to mention that doing so is somewhat on this side of illegal, but that's a whole other issue. Ok Seems really stupid, but we have had this issue on 10 Imacs, and this has solved it on every single instance. The next screen that you come to will be a prompt screen, allowing you to choose which partition to install Windows 7 on. Insert the windows installation disc in the drive. Well I tired it out anyway and it worked flawlessly.
VirtualBox can be used as a substitute for the Boot Camp Assistant. So, even though the solution you offer seems helpful, it doesn't really help me in my particular situation. I was able to install Windows 7 on my iMac fairly easily. Reading this makes me extremely frustrated as these retards responding have abosolutly no reading comprehension whatsoever. It's like i'm not even clicking on it started this morning. I am now using Parallels Desktop for my Windows 7 work.
The solution you present here still doesn't help me, though. Same thing here, so I reinstalled. I tried to install Windows 7 for the past week now. In Windows desktop, insert Leopard install disc and install the Bootcamp 2. Well I have it working now. Minus the whole 64bit and Windows 7, Bootcamp is fine worked great on my previous Mac Pro + Vista.
The solution is under 'bootable install disc' in my previous link: basically you create a copy of your Win7 disc but change some parameters so that it does boot. Note: Backup the data and then try to reinstall the windows 7. Once its done, copy to a flash, restart and install to windows os. I cannot find the 10. I was able to log on using the on-screen keyboard at the Win 7 password startup screen I clicked at the bottom and the option to use the on-screen keyboard was there. Click on it and wait to Windows installs all this drivers in this process is when your mouse stops working.
