Hello. I have recently upgraded an older white intel iMac (24", 2.16ghz) to Snow Leopard and figured it would be nice to also install Windows 7. I used the BootCamp installer, partitioned, loaded in the Windows 7 32bit DVD, and got through the entire install process... until it became time to finalize the install, and Win7 entered into a cycle of looping reboots.
There was a BSOD that had nvlddmkm.sys as the culprit. I have not been able to finalize Win7's installation, and even booting into safe mode doesn't work as the installation cannot go through in that mode.
essentially petered out before a solution was listed. Do any of the experts on this board have a solution? Thank you.
Booted back into OSX, installed NTFS-3G, went into the Win7 volume while in OSX, navigated to System32>Drivers, then deleted nvlddmkm.sys which allowed me to reboot into Win7 and complete the installation process. Then I went to the Nvidia site while in Win7, downloaded the driver for the video card (7300 GT) and everything worked out fine.
Hopefully this can be a good reference for any else with this issue.
