on my new mini with Boot Camp. Here is a link to a photo of my new beast here is a link to my down and dirty custom cooling setup. Fan is unplugged for the photo: http://share.eye.fi/s/40YZV0yRA7GogPdz3QbgWqcZOY I have tried everything I could find on this Forum and Google and the dreaded error "This machine may not be able to boot" Or "Cannot see a partition" stops me cold. I am using a new USB 16GB with bootable Win8 on it, boot camp, I have downloaded latest version Windows Support files to a freshly formatted FAT external USB drive (never gets this far really). I had a Mac laptop for a month or so and got Win7 on it without too much issues. Maybe that is my only hope. Put 7 on and then upgrade? I really wanted a fresh clean install this time around, no clones, no upgrades Microsoft screwed the pooch big time with Win8. It has the least robust install program of ANY OS out there by far. It really is scary how badly MS messed up. I am a huge Windows fan. But am thinking that 8.1 is going to be too little too late. Sorry for rant.
