Hey guys as my title indicates I'm having trouble with Boot Camp. Before i go into the issues itself here/s the spec on my iMac.

iMac
21.5-inch, Mid 2010

Processor: 3.06 Ghz Intel Core i3
Memory: 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 4670 256 MB
Software: Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 (11C74)

Now whats going is well I'm following all the steps on the installation guide you can print before you start (btw I'm using Windows 64bit) with absolutely no problems. That is until i get to the part where windows finishes installing itself. Once it does that it restarts itself just fine to finish up but here's the problem. Then it restarts itself again and gets up to the part that shows Windows Starting up then the screen turns dark. Now at first i figured it was just loading itself but i left the black screen for a good 5-7 minutes and nothing happened at all. I turn off the computer and turn it back on and it does the same thing. Ive tried removing the partition and restarting all over again 3 times. Whats wrong? Can my computer not handle 64 bit? Cus according to the Apple page it should be able to. Thanks in advance for the help
