    Found my year, I think. 

     

    Intro date 9/6/06

     

    Subfamily: Late 2006

     

    Disc. Date 8/7/2007

     

    Looks like I do have a late 2006. 

     

    Does anyone know for sure if this is the problem with trying to install Windows 7?

     

    Does anyone know if I can install Vista if I can't install Windows 7?

    Apple has a tech note on what models support 64-bit Windows and which fall into the (extra hard) unsupported (but does not mean it can't be done) category - but will have more trouble booting from Windows 7 DVD as is.

     

    www.apple.com/support/bootcamp is where everything is found or found from

    I paid $200 for the Vista Home Premium completr OS. It san't just the upgrade.  I didn't have any earlier versions of Windows. I could not find it anywhere for less then $200. Aso got a $25 Best Buy gift card.  So I paid $175 for it.

    The installation worked. I tried again, but this time partitioned only at 32GB. I don't know if that would have anything to do with it. So, i Installed Windows 7 on a late 2006 iMac. Supposingly, Windows 7 can go on an iMac which is 2007 or later. I did just get a new hard drive, in case thatmakes a diffence.

     

    Thank you for your help.
