Okay, I have an iMac that i am trying to bootcamp with Windows 7.. I have done everything correct, to my knowledge, when it comes to the installation process, but everytime my computer restarts to finish the install i get sent to a black screen that says "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD" ... and i guarantee you i have pressed many keys to try and get this to work... no dice.


so here is a list of everything i have tried:


- Rebooting without the cd in the drive. (got a black screen with a flashing underscore, left it on that screen for 3 hours in the hopes it would work, still no luck)

- Restarted the bootcamp process from the beggining, two times... got the same outcome.

- Shutdown my computer, unplugged it, plugged it back in... still nothing.

- Rebooted and tried to start windows by clicking the cd instead of the new drive. (got the "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD" screen, and still couldn't get past it.



If anyone knows what to try next I would greatly appreciate it. This is driving me crazy.
