Bootcamp Windows 8 @27" iMac?

Hey guys! I really need a quick reply here. I'm about to install windows 8 on my iMac via Bootcamp. I heard that I need a USB mouse and a USB keyboard to perform the whole process of installing Windows 8. Is that true? Do I really need a USB mouse and a USB keyboard, in order to be able to click and type when my iMac restarts on Windows?

Others have upgraded Win7 to 8 and managed to retain their boot camp drivers but it didn't work for me.

As it stands now, there are no Boot camp drivers for Win8 so yes, you'll need a USB mouse especially for a "right click". Same for the keyboard I would assume (I'm on a macbook).
