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)
