Hi everybody!


After few days trying to solve this issue, I've finally solved it!


My problem was that after installing the Windows 7 64bits on a bootcamp partition, windows didn't boot, and only a black screen with a blinking cursos is shown on the iMac screen.

Finally I've found 3 commands that have solved the boot problem.


Turn on the iMac with the Windows 7 Installation Disc on SuperDrive or Windows 7 installation on the USB.


Press the Alt until the boot selector is shown.


Select the DVD/USB windows installation


Select your language and time bla bla bla.. click next.


After that, select Repair.


Then select the windows installation and click next,


After click on the last option from the menu to open a Prompt window.


Write and press enter after each sentence:

1- c:/Bootrec.exe /FixMbr


2- c:/Bootrec.exe /FixBoot


3- c:/Bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd


Each command return a successfull message.


Close, and reboot!!



iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
