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.

Thanks.

I've tried putting Win7 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?

MacBook Pro Vs. HP Envy
I already have the envy, you can see my specs. I want to know if it would be worth switching to a MacBook Pro. If I did, I would want windows 7 on it for sure. Is it worth it? I love windows 7, but I also love the compatibility that Apple makes with all its stuff. Apple makes decent hardware, HP...

Freezing on a Macbook?
Has anyone tried installing Windows 7 on a Macbook? I've installed Windows 7 on my first gen Macbook (Core Duo 2 GHz, 1 gig of RAM), and it works fine, when it doesn't freeze. Sometimes, when I boot up, within a couple minutes the laptop might freeze completely. I can't move the mouse and the...
