    Anyone install Windows 8 Pro on a 2012 iMac with a 1TB Fusion Drive?

    If you did how did you get around the lack of Bootcamp support?

    If you have a 1TB drive then you should be able to run bootcamp.
    It's only for iMacs with a drive >2TB that you can't.
    I have a 3TB drive and since I could not use bootcamp, I installed Windows on an external thunderbolt drive (here is a guide on how to do this). There are already various topics on that subject.

    Is it possible to install Windows 8 Pro onto a USB flash drive and boot from it?

    I guess it is, since it's working the same way as an external hard disk drive.
