I have a 24" early-2009 iMac (2.66 Ghz, Intel based, 8 GB of RAM, 2 TB hard drive, Mountain Lion OSX).  Apple's website fails to list my particular iMac in the list of machines that can only run Windows 7 Pro 32-bit so I bought a 64-bit copy (there was another website that I located that listed my iMac as being capable of running both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions).  Today I went to load Windows 7 throuh bootcamp, but the instructions for bootcamp state that the 64-bit version can only work on iMacs starting in LATE 2009. 

 

Does anyone know if the version of Windows 7 that I have will work with my iMac?  Anyone had any success loading Windows 7 Pro 64-bit through bootcamp on an early-2009 iMac?

 

Please note that I posted a similar question earlier today, but it wasn't listed under this particular community and figured this was the better place to ask this question.  Also, I have reviewed other similar postings but most seem to get into the technical issues of loading Windows 7 through bootcamp, but don't address the issue here of using an early-2009 iMac.  If, however, I have overlooked such a posting then please direct me to it because I want to get Windows running so I can run Microsoft Office.

 

Thanks.
