While trying to install windows 7 on my shiny Macbook, after the whole ordeal i had went through (See here and here for more details), I finally had the install going and was at the last step.
By last step I mean my computer had already rebooted several times, went through "Setting up your computer for first time use", and was at the step "Finalizing your settings".
Unfortunatly this last step took forever. By Forever i mean, after leaving my computer at it the whole night, was still stuck there in the morning.
After a bit of investigation on Mr Google, i found out that you can start a console by pressing "Shift-F10". I then typed:
tasklist /v | more Image Name PID Session Name Session# Mem Usage Status User Name CPU Time Window Title ========================= ======== ================ =========== ============ =============== ================================================== ============ ======================================================================== System Idle Process 0 Services 0 24 K Unknown NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM 13:03:01 N/A System 4 Services 0 500 K Unknown NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM 0:00:27 N/A ... svchost.exe 1840 Services 0 1,908 K Unknown NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE 0:00:00 N/A SearchIndexer.exe 752 Services 0 10,956 K Unknown NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM 0:00:03 N/A cmd.exe 1176 Console 1 7,372 K Running NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM 0:00:00 \sources\$oem$\post\kb890830-x86.exe conhost.exe 1244 Console 1 1,392 K Unknown NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM 0:00:00 N/A svchost.exe 240 Services 0 2,020 K Unknown NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE 0:00:00 N/A svchost.exe 1956 Services 0 5,828 K Unknown NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM 0:00:00 N/A cmd.exe 3816 Console 1 2,672 K Running NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM 0:00:00 Administrator: C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe - tasklist /v
And there I saw this KB installer which didn't seem to be doing anything. So i simply killed it with "taskkill /PID 1176"
And tadam, the computer finally finished installed.
That concludes this 3 parts guide ( part 1 and part 2 here) on how to install Windows 7 on a Macbook Pro circa 2009 with bootcamp 4.0.1.
Don't forget to click the "+1" button if that was helpful :)
