This really isn't a question as I finally found a solution to my problem.

While attempting to use Boot Camp Assistant for Boot Camp 4.0.1 on a 2011 iMac I could not get past the error message:




After spending hours in forums and following links in Goodle searches I finally stumbled upon a link in Ask.com that solved the problem.

Boot Camp assistant tells you that you can perform multiple tasks indicating that you can download the support software and install Windows from the same screeen.




But you can't. At least I couldn't on my iMac. This article tells you to choose only one option at a time and that was the solution for me.

Doesn't seem logical but it worked.

The support software download is massive and takes a long time. I set my machine to never put hard drive to sleep and I went to bed. In the morning the software was downloaded and iMac was asking for a disc to burn it to.


Hope this helps some of you get past this annoying glitch.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
