Windows 8 won't install on new iMac

I tried to install windows 8 via bootcamp and while I was going through the Windows 8 installation - it said the drive was not formatted properly (Said it requires NTFS.

P.S. I was installing Windows 8 via a USB drive I created from the CD.

Any ideas?

During the beginning of setup, make sure you select "custom install", click "advanced", then format your bootcamp drive. Then continue the install on the formatted drive...

Do you have the 3TB drive? There is an issue related to that (search the forums).
