    Anyone have any idea why this might be happening? I'd like to Bootcamp my computer so I can run FL Studio awhile ago :( I bought the licence but I haven't been able to use it, unfortunately.

    This happens when Bootcamp installs the AppleHFS.sys and AppleMNT.sys drivers. Rename the files. They are in the Windows/system32/drivers directory. You need NTFS access from OS X or Linux to do this.

    Get some way to edit NTFS. (NTFS-3G, Connect the drive to a PC, ...)
    Navigate to Windows/system32/drivers
    Rename the files AppleHFS.sys and AppleMNT.sys to AppleHFS.sys.disable
    AppleMNT.sys.disable
    Reboot

    Not sure that this is your problem, but that is what was suggested.
