Hello guys,
i recently upgraded my macbook pro mid 2009 from 4 to 8 gigs of ram and 320 to 1 tb hard drive. before the upgrade i had boot camped windows 7 ulti 64 bit with no problems. now that i have upgraded, nor 32 bit and 64 bit installation are even seen. i tried multiple windows disks and portioned and rebooted multiple times too. what happens is:
1) create partition on bootcamp
2) enter disk
3) click "start installation"
4) computer reboots
5) black screen with small cursor blinking
6) black screen with nothing... (disk almost stops spinning)

thanks

Did you try searching the forum? I searched using "Windows Bootcamp Black screen" and got this thread (among others) from just last week... pretty simple! It's a common question here and the search function is highly recommended, especially before complaining that no one has posted a reply.
