    So, from what i´ve researched, to bootcamp windows 8.1 is still somewhat buggy and has driver issues. however, what about earlier versions?

    Are there any issues when installing windows 8? Or does it have the same issues as 8.1 on late 2013 models?

    By issues i mean: installing it, drivers, battery, etc.

    Windows 7 i guess should be fine, but i was looking more to bootcamp windows 8. I don´t mind waiting to update to 8.1 later in the future.

    Thanks!

    Windows 8 should be fine though others have had problems with Bootcamp in Mavericks on the latest rMBP's.
    Have a look at other threads on the subject or google for possible workarounds.

    Windows 8.1 is not currently supported by Bootcamp but I've used it successfully, though my rMBP is a mid 2012.

    Currently Bootcamp only supports 64 bit versions of Windows.
