I don't usually rage on Apple but... Bootcamp is PATHETIC!!!!!! Basically I'm trying to install Windows 8 on my mac via bootcamp using a usb flash drive and it's a pain in the ass. First I figured I would just stick my usb flash drive in (created using the windows usb/dvd tool), and select the install Windows 7 or later option, however, when I tried that I was greeted with a message telling me that I needed to use a DVD... Ok. So for some reason bootcamp isn't smart enough to install from a USB flash drive... Wow. But that's where I'm wrong, because actually IT IS! If you choose the option to download windows support software it claims you CAN use a usb flash drive and it will copy the windows support files to it.. Some good consistency there. But heres where it gets really awesome... When it begins it's stupid downloading process, it never actually finishes! It gets to about half way and then simply stops.... That's right! No error message, no further activity, it just stops. I even checked my network usage just to make sure and yep, it just stopped. I ran the stupid bootcamp wizard twice and it did the same thing both times. I then googled it to see if other people had the same problem, and sure enough they did! In fact that problem has been around for a couple of years now. Well played Apple, it just works an all that. Out of curiosity, has anyone ever successfully finished downloading the windows support software in bootcamp? Anyway, now I need to go through the hassle of making a stupid DVD, hopefully there won't be any more bugs waiting for me. Once again, cheers Apple.
