    Well believe me, when I say iMac has a problem with Windows graphic drivers that need to be uninstalled.

     

    And from the Boot Camp Support page, there is one for iMac but I thought that was only some models.

     

    Troubleshooting

    so i should uninstall graphic driver for mac and then start installing windows ?

    can you please explain me how to do it ? and that troubleshooting page doesnt help i read that before it only helps when upgrading and not for a new installation i think

    It says nothing about upgrades.

     

    When installing Microsoft Windows 7 on an iMac (27-inch, Late 2009) and iMac (21.5-inch, Mid 2010) using Boot Camp, a black screen may appear.  This can happen because the Windows 7 installer does not include the necessary graphics or Bluetooth drivers for your Mac.
