Please tell me whether or not you have installed Windows, it sounds as though you have not. How far into the Boot Camp process did you get, downloaded drivers (step1), created a partition?

to me, you aren't past the windows installer itself.

I think I got to the point where the partition is going to be formated - booted from USB - but I can`t chose anything and it tells that it need a driver.

yes, you aren't running Windows. You have read the guide instruction page 21-22 or so to click on Options/Adv to format BOOTCAMP to NTFS.
As for needing driver, we can't see over a shoulder from here but are any other devcs internal or external - another hard drive than the installer and your target drive for Windows.

I'm getting the exact same problem actually ... Those error messages essentially say that drivers cannot be found. Even when you browse and select the WindowsSupport folder it says drivers can't be found.

Hi. Can you please give the link to download Windows Support Software for Mac. I have the same problem.
Please Note : I have BootCamp v5.0 already installed, so do I need to download the Bootcamp Upgrade.
Thanks for your help.

My problem looked exactly as yours. Try to download the windows file again because it helped me. First I downloaded the file with secure download manager in mac but there was something wrong even though i got the .iso file. The installation stuck exactly at the same point as yours. I just downloaded the file again (with pc) and tried again.

Also Bootcamp 5.0. I can't even get past the driver download. It's slow and gets stuck constantly. Is there any links to just get it ourselves?

Was able to get it running through using the DVD option. Don't know if that was the problem though. Took ~3 hours.

I have exactly the same problem. Did you already solve it?

I'm actually having a similar problem, and I've seen many others complain about this throughout various releases of Boot Camp. When attempting to use the Boot Camp Assistant to download the support software, it quickly gets to about 20% and then just hangs, no matter how many hours I leave the program running for. I've searched all over but can't seem to find a reliable direct download, and don't believe that the drivers are included anywhere in the OSX Mountain Lion install, as I searched through most of the .dmg there. Anybody have any tips or soultions for us?

The download worked when I selected to burn it onto a disc. Took a bit amount of patience, roughly 3 hours, but it was complete.

I just wanted to add to this discussion. About 3 to 5 months ago when I set up my Boot Camp partition under Lion using Windows 7 I was having a similar problem like many of you were having. I kept getting stuck going through the process of creating the install image from an ISO of Windows either on a DVD or USB. I was also not getting the proper download of the Windows bootcamp drivers. It was a huge mess. Nothing worked.
Boot camp may have been version 4 then, I'm not sure. However, on these boards someone posted an FTP link from Apple servers to download bootcamp again. It's out there. I don't know how to find it again, but now that I've let the cat out of the bag -- maybe someone can find it and post it here.
BTW, I'm using a new 2012 MacBook Air 13 -- less than a week old -- and I still had the same problems. I'm trying to do boot camp all over again because I didn't WinClone the boot camp partition before switching systems.
