Currently Being ModeratedMay 11, 2010 8:02 AM (in response to Hal Jay Greene)Thank you for posting this walkthrough.
I have 14 mid-2007 iMacs (which are Windows 7-compatible according to Apple) that I need to install Windows 7 in. When I saw the CD-ROM Boot Type error screen on the first, I was more than a little angry.
I hope Apple fixes this with a firmware update. I'm saving the .iso file now, and will burn the first disk in a little while. Hopefully, it'll work out fine. It seems to have worked for other readers.iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.3), Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.16 GHz, 2 GB RAM
Currently Being ModeratedMay 11, 2010 8:10 AM (in response to Ascend_Admin)You cannot stuff a UEFI into an EFI32 ROM, there isn't room; EFI32 is 2005-2008; UEFI 2.x was the first to support 64-bit.
Apple does have an article on which Macs DON'T support 64-bit Windows (I think it actually just says my Mac Pro 2006 doesn't support Windows 7, which of course I am running! But had extra hoops.
It is possible to install Windows 7 32-bit on one drive, then boot into that, and install Windows 7 64-bit ON A SEPARATE drive or partition (my mac has 4 internal drives). Else, you get into 'triple boot' and the pitfalls and problems.
Technology changes and you can't always go back. Even having a 64-bit processor is only part of the equation.Mac Pro 8800GT 10K VelociRaptor, Mac OS X (10.6.2), Windows 7 i7 3.2GHz GTX 260-216
Currently Being ModeratedMay 11, 2010 9:55 AM (in response to The hatter)Well, after installing Win 7 Pro (64-bit) into the first Mid-2007 iMac, now I can't install the Boot Camp drivers from the Mac OS X Snow Leopard DVD. It's saying that "Boot Camp x64 is unsupported on this computer model."
We're a training facility, and the reason we bought Win 7 64-bit is because some of the software we'll be teaching requires a 64-bit OS.
I thought this machine model has a 64-bit processor. What gives? This wasn't even a low-end model. Anyone have any ideas?iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.3), Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.16 GHz, 2 GB RAM
