    i have the 64bit .iso i created from my dvd. I attempt to load it but when it goes to install screen it fails to load any of the drives, i.e...trying to boot from sata drive failed. No boot device is installed. What could i be doing wrong here? thank you!

    Which OS is it? Are you trying to install it or have you been using it for a while? what happened that caused an issue? an update? force stop?

    I was trying to install windows 7 ultimate edition from scratch. I just recently installed parallels 8, i used to have parallels on my MBP and everything worked fine.
    This is my mac mini im trying to install it to, so it's my first go around trying to install windows 7 on it. The windows 8 download and install worked flawlessly, but i need the 7. I have to .iso on my desktop and that didn't work, i then put it on a 4gb usb and tried it that way and got the same errors. It fails to see any of the drives and goes right into the network boot.
