Windows 7 installed successfully and I have also installed the boot camp and it runs smoothly. It has a wireless Apple keyboard which windows is not recognizing. Help This is a great tutorial.
Then press Enter to start downloading the software. These are the minimum requirements; there are more things such as having a time machine backup, etc. You may notice the menu is empty or does not contain the virtual disk file we created earlier. You have to install Windows in the partition you make with Boot Camp Assistant, then install the 3. I printed off the original instructions and made notes on each section where comments by others mattered or changed it. This will allow you to browse to the bootcamp.

I installed the Apple update for the trackpad in Bootcamp, still no right click ability. See the Setup log files for more information. This did not work either. You will find a Boot Camp assistant in the utilities folder, open it. It gave me a warning about compatibility, which I ignored, and then I downloaded and installed the boot camp 2.
But even then, I don't make copies of Windows software like that because it might not copy well, causing more problems than solving.

My Mac Pro is rebooting only to Windows. It failed the first time as the mouse would not work but I had a spare mouse and plugged it in and was able to click accept the rules and regulations and the process went as described. To fix these issues take a Snow Leopard disk and insert it and allow the Apple Boot Camp software to do its job. Edits to post 69 and 71 Problem Solved: My original install was an upgrade from Vista 64Bit.
It's a problem with an incompatibility with the video drivers on the Windows 7 Installation Disc and the video card in particular models of iMac. You can use either 32bit or 64bit, although 64bit is recommended for the best performance. You can read about this update here directly from Apple's website and update.
