I have an early 2011 MacBook Pro 15".


I used to have windows 7 running via bootcamp when I first got the machine.


About 18 months ago I replaced my primary disk drive with a Solid State drive so I installed a fresh version of Mac OS X Mountain Lion and then tried to install Windows 7 via bootcamp. The drivers all download fine but when the installation begins the first reboot displays a flashing white line and nothing else.


Anyone know why this is? Does Bootcamp not like Solid State?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)
