    I have the new macbook 12 inch. I bought the adaptor that has the usb port, apple sells. The problem I run into is I use 1 usb disk to download the windows boot camp, then i unplug that and plug in the apple usb superdrive to divide partition and attempt windows 8 install but it requires 2 usb connections one for usb with bootcamp and one for the usb superdrive that has windows disk. So it won't allow install. I bought a usb adaptor that has 4 extra ports, but the superdrive won't power on....any ideas on how to continue windows 8 install with only one usb port to use?

    I'm not sure whether a SuperDrive can be used for Boot Camp installation or not.

    Why would you plug in the SuperDrive to divide the partition?

    All you need is just a single stick to contain both the Windows installer and the drivers . That's it.

    The drivers and the Windows installer are supposed to be contain within a single stick, not two separate ones.
