I downloaded the Support Software to a FAT-32 flash drive and partitioned the main hard drive inside my Late 2009 Macbook running Lion. The Windows starter worked fine and I installed Windows 7 Professional. The installation worked just fine and I was taken to a Windows desktop. I insterted the flash drive and ran the installer using the .exe. Everything looked just fine, I even watched as the support for my graphics chip was installed. I restarted the computer to make sure everything went all right and when I opened Windows from the boot menu, the screen goes blank. There is a little glow, but otherwise it's black.


I can't repair the Support Software because the OS won't boot. I can boot into OS X just fine, and I even tried twice to install Windows with the same result (and completely deleted the Windows partition). The only modified thing about my computer is an upgrade in memory. Any help would be appreciated!

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.7.3), 4 GB of RAM, standard graphics chip
