Do you know that for sure? Keep in mind if it does, he would have to completely erase his hard drive and then purchase a copy of Mountain Lion. Also, I don't believe that it would solve his current problem trying to install Win 7 x 64 Pro.

I'm definitely a she!

The MBA is new so I don't have any data besides an ISO on the desktop to lose. I am not sure whether I trill resolve my issue....to revert to Mountain Lion but at least I can say I tried that and can eliminate that possible solution.

Apple are due to call me again, tomorrow so I'll post an update on here. My issue is apparently with the senior engineering team. I can't wait to hear what they have to say on this. I hope they come up with a proper explanation for this. I refuse to give up so I hope there is a way to resolve my issue. This MBA should be able to deal with a Win 7 Pro x64 install.

Thanks to you all for your input

I found this yesterday. you will need to Call Apple to order Snow Leopard Server and purchase Parallels to be able to use PowerPC apps on any mac running Lion or newer.

The Apple support tech I've been dealing with hasn't had reply from the engineers yet (no surprise there) so it's been re-escalated.

While they take their sweet time, I'm becoming more and more frustrated by the day.

Hi, as promised I have an update and I hope this helps other users in this forum.

The MBA has now been fixed and is currently running Windows 7 Professional x64 bit!!! I'm just installing my software now

Here's the fix that worked: Reset the PRAM (Thanks John!)

https://discussions.apple.com/message/25476440#25476440

OS X Mavericks: Reset your computer

Apple support did not have an update on this from the engineers so I'll be contacting them with the links above to let the know what worked for me and hopefully it will save many others a lot of time and stress.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to my post

I'm so happy the MBA is now up and running on the Windows side!!!

Awwwww how kind, thanks!! I will definitely keep an eye on this forum

I really enjoyed posting in my little thread. It was nice to vent and have a place where I could ask questions and not feel so hopeless.

I heard from the apple support tech who informed me the engineers suggested a corrupt ISO! Can you believe that. I had already eliminated that because we use these the ISO files regularly on other machines. We tried a few different ISOs/versions of Windows. I told the support guy to email the fix to the engineering team and tell them it was not a corrupt ISO!! I expected more from Apple support.

Thank goodness for forums!!
