    Hi All,

    It's not a big issue, but I would like to know why this is happening. I used bootcamp assistant for Windows 8 install. Went through the whole process, but it doesn't install bootcamp drivers automatically. I did this a few times, and sometimes it does automatically install drivers. What's causing it not installing automatically? Thanks in advance!

    For me, as I posted yesterday about a Win7 install (apple support ended up finding a document about this), it was a matter of using the left USB port for the USB memory stick. Did you try that per chance?

    I was on the verge of giving up and sending the new one back and keeping my 2012. Good luck!

    Cheers!
    Glen

    oh wow, didn't know that side of USB port made a difference. i will definitely give that a try. it was really annoying. i am kind of OCD when it comes to clean software installation.
