why here? and we have been down this road.
follow instructions for Imgburn, ccc can't you need to use Windows aware programs, use a PC to startthe install, pick up a $650 PC even say LGA1155 3.4GHz
use VM and forget Bootcamp
use an SSD ? makes for goid response
find "Jowie" page on how to use imgburn and print it out
you use windows 7 pro to support 2 cpus and 64-bit to address more than 1.9GB RAM (real bummer that)
ow that windows supports UEFI and sees yoj have EFI... wheras Vista pre-SP1 was a breeze to install.

hi. i am wondering if this may be a Mac Pro 1,1 specific problem or otherwise a hardware issue.
unfortunately i did not understand anything you wrote!
boot camp is absolutely necessary for me. there is no alternative for me using virtual machines (which i am using) due to computational needs/speed which are not possible using virtualization. this is the need for boot camp.
what is the point about EFI?
we used the jowie page to install Windows 7 and this was done by the guy that helps me with technical issues. this installation /was/ working and now it is not working.
if i try and boot into windows 7 it crashes and reboots into mac OS...

a report back after hacking my way through siberia over here:
turns out there are bad sectors on my drive that some third party program discovered.
the disk is on it's way back to WD with a replacement in the works.
fortunately my internal cloned backup got me back up to speed with mac os but unfortunately i was not yet setup to clone my windows boot camp backup so i will be installing windows 7 boot camp one more time on this drive...

Good to hear... I guess, knowing what and why.
I use WD Lifeguard and that has done a good job with those WD drives and also with bad sectors, otherwise SMART Utility and SoftRAID.
The memory diagnostic test in Windows is good as well. Picking up problems missed by others.
When you do get setup, I hope you enjoy after all this, and look at Paragon or something to clone Windows.
