    Boot Camp Issues
    Hi all,

    I wanted to use windows on my mac for games, apps etc.

    Anyway when it is going through the installation proccess and then goes to start windows it then pops up with (on the start up windows black screen).

    "Windows has failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

    1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.
    2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next".
    3. Click "Repair your computer"."

    I have tried doing this but it comes back to what it is on.
    I have also run the diagnostic and that is all fine.

    Could anyone who has had this issue or knows what i could do please help.
    Any suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks to all in advance.

    MBP 17" 2011, 2.3GHz Intel Quad-Core i7, 8GB RAM, MacMini 2011, 2.7GHz Intel Dual-Core i7, 8GB RAM
    What versions are you running (OSX, Bootcamp, Windows)?
    Did you follow the instructions explicitly?
    Why not just delete the partition and start over?

    There was an update to Bootcamp (3.1 to 3.2) in the last couple days.
