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.

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.Mac Pro, Windows 8 Preview x64 3.2GHz
