There are no Windows 8 Bootcamp drivers. Windows 8 is not supported.
Use Parallels or Fusion to install Windows 8. By doing so you eliminate the need for drivers since the virtual machine creates virtual hardware and drivers.
Once the Windows 8 Bootcamp drivers are developed and released you can then install using Bootcamp Assistant.
Read this forum. Some people are posting that they had some success with the Bootcamp install. but if you have to rely on your computer then don't take the chance.

Thanks for the reply. I'm having the exact same issues with the Windows 7 installer freezing, so this is not just a Windows 8 issue. I don't think it's really a driver issue as it won't even get past the Mac boot option screen, unless of course it's a problem with the gt120 not being supported. The strange thing is that I've installed Windows 7 in the past with all of the same hardware with Snow Leopard and Lion.

I should also note that I've reset the SMC/PRAM plenty of times!

So, I got it to work! Turned out I did have to take out the SATA DVD Drive on one of the extra ports and replace it with an IDE DVD Drive. After that, everything worked perfectly. Hope this helps.
