Bootcamp craches after choosing partition

Hi guys,
Tried to install Windows with Bootcamp assistant (got an ISO on the thumb drive). At the third, straight after I choose the size of partition and press continue, Bootcamp crashes. Tried a couple of times with different thumbs - the same story all over again. Any thoughts?

You need software (usually Windows based) that can install the ISO onto a bootable USB drive.

So basically you say that the problem is bootcamp cannot create a proper bootable usb drive?


Update: Got it partitioned. But now it says "No bootable device". I've tried to make bootable thumb both through Bootcamp and thirdparty apps - same story.

Just burn the iso to DVD using Disk Manager.
