Win7 install on Imac ?

category: general [glöplog]
Sorry to ask here, but iam sure some of you use OSX and Windows same time, i made my partitions installed rEFIt and whenever i want to install Windows on the partition while booting from CD / DVD i end up with a blackscreen and stupid message like :

M76XT B22504 .... 750m

I googled for it, and saw it could be a GFX card / resolution problem, but so far i found no useful answer !

Anyone figured out the same problem / solved it ?

HW: Imac 24" - 4GB Ram - Core 2 Duo 2.8 ghz - ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro

I've got xp on mine, but why not just install the latest bootcamp off apple's site and install from that?

Bootcamp doesn't allow Windows XP on the last MacBook so I choose Parrallels Desktop 6, that works really fine, you can has Windows INTO Mac OSX whitout any performance issues, you just need a good amount of free RAM (I got 4Go so it's ok, with WinXP loaded into OSX I still got 1.5Go RAM free).

Dunno then, but if you figure it out post it here, i might need to install win7 one day (mine is exactly the same spec, and my xp partition got fucked over by a virus some time back so an install is likely at some point).

Yeah, i run xp under vmware. XP's C: drive is even on a different computer's hdd, it still runs pretty well. It does all the stuff I need (ms office) perfectly, but it doesn't fare so well with demos. A native boot is always going to be best for that :(
