    Hi guys

    I'm having troubles in installing windows 8 from an ISO image, creating an installation disk and partition with the Apple Bootcamp assistant.....basically the rMB reboots into windows installation, but I can't select anything not having trackpad or keyboard working :(
    Any ideas?

    Maybe apple forgets putting necessary windows pe driver inside that disk.

    Any clue on how to get trackpad/keyboard recognized?
    Is it a problem that occurred to some others or just me unlucky?
    I don't have a cable mouse or keyboard unfortunately :(

    Try pressing (hard :D) option key while booting and choose EFI drive to start.
    You need your win install drive connected to your mac, of course. And don't connect anything else.

    Tried that way as well....starting from the yellow EFI Boot, but nothing!
    Tonight I will try burning the ISO with Disk Utility directly on the drive, downloading Bootcamp drivers to a separate USB stick....

    Disk utility always gives an error while restoring Win ISO to the USB hard drive so no luck either

    Get the drivers that you need from the Apple site.
