Hi everyone, sorry for my English.

I have Imac 24 2006 late, with 7600GT 256Mb , Core2Duo T7400, 2Gb Ram, SuperDrive, and 500Gb HDD.

in this Imac i use OSX Lion, 10.7.5 work well, great. but, i have trouble with one thing.

WINDOWS 7 32bit.

Try to Install under BootCAMP as sayis in instruction to installation Windows on MAC with Intel CPU.

Trouble: After BootCAMP create Partition (BOOTCAMP) and insert ORIGINAL DVD WINDOWS, and Restart
nothing happen, just GRAY screen without anything. all freezes.

Try to BOOT with COMMAND (PRESSING "C") to boot from SupreDrive,
i hear device is working, something read there, in Superdrive, but after 10 sec,
Superdrive will slowdown, and stop. and GRAY screen. nothing happen.

maybe Superdrive dead? but in MAC OS Lion, i can read any DVD, CD
work fine.

try to boot from EXT. USB DVD BOX Drive,
situation like a with SuperDrive. Device working 10 sec, read disk
and then nothing happen again. just GrAy Screen.

Try to make bootable usb,
nothing happen.
Imac see USB, after select boot from USB.

All Firmwares are updated by MACOS update.

try manualy download efi update for my model
and installer says - no needed update.
