    I bought a new rMBP yesterday, I have to use some windows programs for school so I figured Bootcamp would be the best option. Due to the fact that I dont have a disk drive i put it on a flash drive and started the I got through the partitioning part and then restarted my computer, went through the installation process in windows then it told me to remove the flash drive from my computer and restart. When I restarted the computer this time it went to a gray screen for a while then continued to a black screen that wanted me to reinsert the boot drive and press any key to continue. When I reinserted the boot drive and pressed a key nothing happed. I tried this a couple times and it wouldn't work, what do I do?

    I sounds like when it asked you to reboot from the flash drive, it was wanting you to re-install the OS. I would double check that the partition installed correctly. Press the option key when the system re-boots, and select your boot camp partition. It should re-boot into Windows, if not, there may have been an issue with your install.

    This website is a great resource!

    Are you still able to get to OS X? Hold Option as it powers on (at the gray screen, right before the Apple logo would normally show) and it should give you a list of partitions to boot to.

    If not, and Windows Setup somehow screwed up both partitions (it happens!) press Command+R after powering on, which brings you to the recovery software. You might just need to start fresh.
