    Imac 27" problem with windows!
    I have Mac OS X Version 10.6.4:

    Device ID: 0x944a
    Revision ID: 0x0000
    ROM Revision: 113-B9110C-425
    EFI Driver Version: 01.00.383

    I installed windows 7 with bootcamp successfully, installed the drivers from the "Mac OS X Install DVD" but i get freeze screens/black screens and a message, "display driver is not responding and has stopped working" when it works again. This happens very often maybe every 5 minutes, sometimes it never recovers from the freeze/black screen and i have to restart from the power button. When he's in a good mood he gives me a blue screen for a change and restarts.
    Also i cant access my hard drives because i cant operate as the administrator and it doesn't ask me for a password or something. How do i log in as admin?

    Moved to correct forum.

    You need to go to the ATI site and download the mobility drivers for your 4850 GPU. The iMac is actually a notebook computer built vertically as an all in one machine. The correct drivers will install OK and should eliminate the freezing and black screens.
