Hey guys,


Just trying to install Windows 7 64 bit onto my Mid 2011 iMac (Running Lion 10.7.5) however every time I choose how much I want to partiction my hard drive and start the installation process the iMac gives me an error telling me the disc isn't reckognised. In fact when I put the disc in the iMac fails to reckognise it at all and spits it out after a few minutes of whirring. I know for sure it isn't an upgrade version of Windows 7 and tried cleaning the disc many a time. The drive itself has never been a problem and plays dvds etc. with ease.


Any help would be appericated = )

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
