i simply cant get windows to work with bootcamp, no matter what i try!!!

installing on a 2012 mbp 13" with mountain lion, only one hard drive partitioined correctly, instll goes fine and restarts a couple of times then on the last restart it just hangs on the black screen with the blinking line and whenever i try to boot to windows i just get the same black screen.
ive searched high and low and cant find any help.

I only have a Mac mini but what version of Windows are you trying to install? Bootcamp 4 (Lion / Mountain Lion) is not yet supporting Windows 8.

funny that - they have tested same CPU environments and the Apple actually runs windows (slightly) faster....

its all about drivers and attention to details. theres an odd irony that windows runs better on a mac, and office works better on osx...
