    Hi all, I don't suppose anybody can help me get Windows 8 installed on a Mac through Bootcamp? I got myself a copy of the Windows 8 Pro OEM version and have managed to create the bootable USB drive.

    However, I keep encountering the problem of not being able to download the Windows Support Software from Apple (ie the second checkbox in Bootcamp Assistant) and its preventing me from installing Windows 8 properly. Has anyone else encountered or know how to solve this problem? Would really appreciate some help if anybody knew how to resolve this issue, its been so frustrating. Thanks!

    Here are a couple of links to articles about Windows 8 with BootCamp and Parallels... sounds like Apple isn't ready for it yet...

    You all should be thankful they're not ready. Don't waste your money on this.

    I know so far that it is not wise to install it as it will create some sort of problem.
