I am using Boot Camp Assistant to create a 100 GB partition, and then install Windows 7. However, the Windows 7 disk never loads. The screen remains black. No flashing cursor.
Steps I am following:
1. Launch Boot Camp Assistant 3 2. Create a 100 GB Partition 3. Insert Windows 7 fully license disk 4. Click on the "Start Installation Button" 5. The MacBook Pro restarts and attempts to launch the Boot Camp Windows 7 volume 6. I never get the traditional flashing cursor, followed by the successful loading of the Windows 7 disk 7. The screen goes black and stays black 8. That's as far as it get.
At this point, I have no idea how to proceed. I don't know if it the problem is due to graphic cards, sounds cards, or other issue.
I have exactly the same problem. I have tried to install Windows 7 three times now, and the same thing occurs each time. I have OS 10.6.3 with all software updates installed and have a black Macbook from 2008. I also have a genuine full copy of Windows 7, not the upgrade only version.
