Windows 7: RC DVD Won't Boot on MacBook Pro

RC DVD Won't Boot on MacBook Pro

I downloaded the RC ISO and burned it to a DVD and tried to install it on my MacBook Pro, but the DVD won't boot. I hold down C during boot, they gray screen comes up and the disc spins real fast for a while, but nothing happens.

I have read that the ISO created isn't ISO compliant so you have to create an ISO that is. I followed the instructions here to do that. This didn't make a difference.

I didn't have any problems installing the Beta, but the RC won't boot. Any help is appreciated.

Windows 7

I've tried putting Windows 7 on a 4GB USB drive following the directions here. I used rEFIt to boot from the USB drive. It still won't boot.

Has anyone else got the RC to work on a MacBook Pro?
