I have already ordered my 24" iMac, and should receive it tomorrow. However there is a "yet unofficial" problem which I cannot really find a solution, since the 24" model of the iMac is very new in the market.
There is already a topic open at the Apple's discussions pages "http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=637465&tstart=15" but let me summarize the situation, anyway.
There are only two tested computers so far. One of them is a 2.16ghz w/NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT 256MB ram (which works fine with the BootCamp and XP), the other one is 2.16ghz w/NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT 128MB (which does not work, screen goes blank after the installation).
When I ordered my iMac from MacMall.com, they were offering "XP pre-installed bundles" for iMac 24" models. But after receiving a note or press release from Apple people, they cancelled all the XP bundles for 24" iMacs only. Therefore I cancelled my bundle, too.
However when I called the Apple, they acted like they've never heard this. I've spoken three different tech-support personnel.
My question is has anyone had any problem with their new 24" iMac at the XP installation via BootCamp?
All inputs are highly appreciated.

I have not installed it on a 24 inch, but I suspect that Apple Tech Support has been told to keep quiet because Boot Camp is still a beta.Windows on the Mac - Forums and free support for Boot Camp, Parallels, and VMWare.

Got the same problem on the 24 inch iMac with NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT 128MB. Nobody seems to have any ideas!
