Hi All,

I updated my iMac 20" with a new 2tb HD and all installed well, I then went to install boot camp with Winz7 Ult. and went through the whole install as normal but until the last step that is suppose to boot into Winz desktop.  The screen boots to black(as it did normally and booted just fine before upgrade) with blinking cursor on top left cursor, but no boot to desktop.


I have installed this same setup with the original HD(400gb) and all worked fine. 


I'm running Lion(10.7.3).


I have tried many different tricks, procedures and possible fixes from here and other sites on the web with no avail....


Any Ideas????


Any help would be appreciated.....


Thanks in Advance....

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.3), 2009
