    No boot cd - Bootcamp installation?
    Basically, I created a ISO disk of Windows, using Roxio's Toast Titanium, all fine, all burned onto DVD disk.

    Then I open Bootcamp, portion it, and hit begin the installation, allow it, all's okay, then my mac restarts, goes grey screen, then goes to a black screen and say's :

    'No Boot CD, please enter Boot CD and hit any key to continue'

    And I can't get past that..

    Can anybody help me and advise me what to do?

    Many thanks, Nick

    Try using the original Windows disc.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    Ahh any guesses why not my man?
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    bobtomay- I've lost the original windows disk, unfortunately, which is why I've resorted to making one.

    harry- Heh, for some reason I'm getting the feeling your going to tell me I need the original as well.. Aside the fact I do not have the original, is there anything else I could do?

    Nope. Nothing you can do except buy another. And personally, if you have to buy another copy of Windows, I would purchase an OEM system builders full version of Windows 7 Home Premium. Great price at NewEgg right now for $99.99 + free shipping.

    Purchase a copy of Windows from your favorite establishment that sells software. If you don't have a favorite, try the link provided by chscag above.
