Yes. Sorry. Guess I'm a mess tonight.
The Windows installer completes. The computer restarts, it begins configuring. It restarts again and then I get a black screen. It's not a lit screen that displays black. It looks like the computer is off. Nothing happens. The hard drive has wound down, the install disc isn't spinning, the screen is off.

Disconnect the USB Drive from the computer and try to start up again depressing the Option Key at the chime.
Select the Windows partition and boot and tell us what happens.

From your OP I assumed Window 7 finished installing and you had the Windows Support Software USB attahed at boot up.
Are you using a DVD or USB for the Windows 7 install?
Did Windows 7 finish installing?
Apparently Windows doesn't like the Windows Support Software USB attahed at boot up.

Ok, just in case it is vainly trying to do something silly (like booting) off the DVD, restart the Mac holding down the trackpad (if a recent portable) or the mouse button. The DVD will be ejected and, hopefully, the Mac will manage to start up ok. Holler back if it doesn't.

Thanks for the suggestion. I removed the DVD and tried again.
The screen asking me if I want to start up in Safe Mode or Start Windows Normally comes up. I chose Start Windows Normally and the screen goes black. I chose Safe Mode and the screen comes up telling me that it's configuring my computer for its first use. However, it only does this for about 30 seconds and then tells me that the computer can't be configured in Safe Mode.

Re install your Windows DVD
Restart the computer and hold OPTION KEY
When the icons display choose the Windows DVD.
The install scrren on the Windows DVD has some options below the Install now button in the center.
They are on the lower left.
I forget what they say but they give you various options.
One is a command prompt.
Go there and try these commands: C:
That will check if all the Windows systems got installed correctly.
If you get an error you will probably have to reinstall Windows 7
Are you sure you have a Full Install disk of Windows 7 and not an upgrade.
Apple has so fubared BootCamp with this update I am schocked!
