    I am trying to install Windows 8 OEM on a bootcamp partition. I never have any problems doing it in Parallels but I want to run native. I created a USB for the files, partitioned about 140gb but when I get in it says that my bootcamp drive is in the wrong format so I do that but it still doesn't work. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Despite what rMBP says, I really would like to install it on there somehow.

    Could I partition through disk utility first? This might sound silly but how would I get windows to install onto it after that?

    If you're going to do this, leave your original post in-tact, and post your solution so others might benefit.
