Hello guys !

I need some serious advice!

Today I just installed Win7 Ultimate 64 bit on my Macbook Pro OS X 10.9 (13A603), 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7, 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 512 MB.

The install was completely fine I was using boot camp assistance, made a small partition for windows etc, regular proper way to set up windows.

The problem is when I try to open windows at the computer's start, the black screen appears as regular windows open but immediately restart the computer, this goes for as log as I don't switch back to Mac OsX .

What should I do ??? I really appreciate any help !
Adrian

Try booting Windows in safe mode and see if it will boot to a desktop. If so, it could be a graphics driver problem.

If I remember correctly it's by pressing the F8 key whilst Windows is booting.

The problem is... the windows is not even booting, only the black screen appears for a half second, then restart, so I don't even make it until the loading screen

It still might be worth a try, tapping the F8 key as soon as you highlight the Windows drive and press enter. It may affect the booting process.
If it doesn't I'm afraid I don't know of anything else to suggest.
Obviously other users here may do :-)

I tried, not solving the problem, although the black screen appears now with a flashing _ thats it can't get further.

Anyone else any advice?

When you get the blinking _, let it sit for a while. It might boot.

As cradom says give it a minute or two normal Windows booting lol!

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!

Did you download the driver image from Apple and place it either on a USB flash drive or CD? If you did, did you then load the drivers for Windows 7? The description you're giving us of the problem sounds like the graphic drivers have not been loaded.

Nope I didn't , but I can't reach win desktop to do any installation, I was downloading the bootcamp option(windows update) to put it on the usb hard drive. Yes I think my graphic card is the problem, although I have no idea how to put the drivers, and what driver should I install.

I tried to reinstall and use the Home Pro version of windows-same problem.

If I hit F8 at booting, a black screen appear with a flashing _
After 3-4 min restart automatically.

I would start over. Run Boot Camp once more and remove the Windows 7 partition you created. That should get everything back to the Macintosh HD again. Then run Boot Camp again but this time follow the Boot Camp instructions. Your MBP does not have an optical drive so you must install the drivers downloaded from Apple via a USB flash drive or external hard drive.

Also take note that your MBP needs drivers for both of your graphic cards: The intel HD 4000 and the nVidia 650m.

Did you use BootCamp to set up the partition? If so use BootCamp to remove it and try again and what do you mean by a 'small' partition>
