Microsoft Windows insalling an update.
The first thing anyone should do, well first is to make a backup system restore image, so 2ND thing, boot from Windows DVD and rollback to last good boot point.
Probably the same as the original iMac 27" black screen issue.
But that is for install Windows not after.

The link doesn't help, literally the only screen I can get this iMac to make is black screen. No boot menu, no OS X. Just the startup noise, then black screen.
As for the Win7 DVD, let's see if I can even get it into the thing.
Update after the break.

Still nothin', man. It's a two-button USB mouse that I use every day on both OSes, so it should work. I tried letting it run for a bit, then messing with the keyboard and mouse; neither are responsive. The keyboard won't show Num Lock as being on, the Apple keyboard won't activate either. The laser on the USB mouse is on, but holding either left or right click down does nothing when booting.
There is no "startup" happening here, the screen is comletely off, makes the "your Mac is turning on" sound while the screen is off, then the screen turns on but is still black. None of the peripherals seems to be able to affect it, so I think I might just have to take it in as soon as I can, unless there's anything else you can think of?
