Additional Instructions PDF Version

When the Windows 7 installer finishes, you will need to reboot your computer. WHEN YOU REBOOT, as soon as your screen goes black, press and hold the option key (the option key will either be labeled with the word "option", "alt", or the symbol ).

You should see a two disk icons, one labeled "Macintosh HD" (or possibly EFI Boot) and one labeled "Windows". Click on the Windows icon and then click on the arrow underneath it to boot into Windows 7.

If the Apple logo appears on your screen (see below) you missed the option boot menu. Restart your Mac and hold down the option key.

You will have to repeat this procedure every time your machine reboots to boot in to Windows 7. During the course of the Windows installation, the machine will reboot several times. After Windows is installed, it might attempt to download and install several Windows updates - this process can take as long as 30 minutes.
