    Hello, just got the Retina Display MBP 15" and the superdrive. I can see the drive and its content under Mac OS. However, when I tried to install Windows, Boot Camp Assistant says that there is no usb drive. Could anybody please help me to solve the issue? Thanks.

    I installed bootcamp last night and I was confused by this at first as well.

    If your issue is the same as mine, you will need a USB stick formatted in FAT32 so Bootcamp can copy the drivers to the USB stick. You will then use that later on in the Windows side to install bootcamp. It's not looking for the Windows CD at that point in the process.
