I swear I have been googling and searching around this forum but haven't found yet any solution.
iMac 27 (Late 2009), Mountain Lion. I replaced the ODD because it was broken with a bay +SSD (OCX Vertex 3). Installed Fusion drive between SSD + HDD. No FileVault in place.
Using an external USB DVD reader with a Win7 64bits Ultimate DVD.
When I use the assist for bootcamp it creates succesfully the partition (20Gb, 300Gb - severals tried - ), reboots and tries to boot from the DVD reader. It does not boot, and shows the usual grey screen with the Apple icon on it without doing anything.
I have tried rebooting selecting manually the DVD (Windows Install) with the ALT key. Same behaviour.
I have tried with different DVDs, same behaviour.
When rebooting and pressing ALT shows Fusion drive and two DVDs: Windows Install and EFI. Tried to boot using EFI, same result.
To discard any wrong behaviour from the external DVD reader + Windows install drive, I have booted from my Macbook Air succesfully and the Windows installation started perfectly, so it's not a problem related the external reader or installation DVD.
I have also tried to use rEFit, but it does not work either, it does not boot the rEFit software in the boot process.
I am starting to think this may be related to the Fusion drive setup, but I am completly lost what to look next.
Any hint would be welcome.
