Hi all,


I have scoured the Internet and Apple support forums, and I can find no solution to this problem.  If anyone can help, I would be eternally grateful.


I have a brand new 27" iMac.  When I try to install Windows 7 via Bootcamp, everything appears to work fine, until I get to the first Windows install screen.   This is the screen where it asks what language you would like to use, etc.  The problem is I can't get past this screen because there is no keyboard or mouse functionality.  There is no curser on the screen, and no buttons work. 


I have tried the bluetooth set that came with my computer, as well as a separate USB set.  I have tried plugging and unplugging the USB while at that screen. 


I have tried loading Windows 7 from the DVD and from the ISO on a memory stick.  I have downloaded the support software automatically and manually.


I am an experienced Mac user, and I have done everything I can think of, but I am at a loss.


Please help!


iMac (27-inch, Late 2013)
