    Hi all, I don't suppose anybody can help me get Windows 8 installed on a Mac through Bootcamp? I got myself a copy of the Windows 8 Pro OEM version on launch day happily thinking I would get to spend the rest of the evening tinkering with Windows 8.

    However, I keep encountering the problem of not being able to download the Windows Support Software from Apple (ie the second checkbox in Bootcamp Assistant) and its preventing me from installing Windows 8 properly. Has anyone else encountered or know how to solve this problem? Would really appreciate some help if anybody knew how to resolve this issue, its been so frustrating. Thanks!

    Have you tried contacting Apple to see if Boot Camp supports Windows 8?

    It works, but right now apparently the apple servers are having issues. Someone over at Neowin has a clever workaround:
    Installed Windows 8 on Windows 7 Boot Camp (as an Upgrade) and all is well& - Neowin Forums
