    I am in a pickle here. I thought I had the latest version of Boot Camp with version 5.1.5640. Apparently I do not have the newest version.

    I have installed windows 8.1 via SCCM in turn blowing away all apple software on the machine. (this is the way I am required to do it)

    Is there any way at all I can get the newest BCA with out loading OS X back on this machine? I only have 1 of these and there is no plan to get another one for a while so I can't download it on a different machine.

    Please help this poor soul.

    What model do you have?

    You don't need Bootcamp Assistant at all (this does is partitions you drive and makes you a bootable USB which you have already done) - you just need the correct bootcamp drivers for your particular model.

    If you do not have one of the models detailed here https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1720?locale=en_US then you probably already have the correct drivers.

    I actually called enterprise support, and there is no way for me to get the drivers without using BCA. The way apple used to do it was with a large file that worked for several machines. The new way they do it is scanning the machine when you start the BCA and then it only downloads the software specific for that machine.

    I am now in the process of waiting for the internet downloaded utilities to start so I can download OSX and re-install the damn thing.

    Well, I used the 5640 drivers and it worked on all my UEFI 2.0 Macs (except the Broadwell 13" rMBP that I have).
