    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!

    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.
