    It depends on your needs. Do you need Windows at all?

    After installing the windows 8 do not run boot camp from setup, but install the individual driver from the windows support folder. Do not install the programme, driver in NVIDIA folder instead delete this folder and download new one from NVIDIA Site some thing like 310 in its name and install. After restarting run windows support folder setup file but only after deleting the NVIDIA folder only.  Every thing works. The culprit is the NVIDIA folder in the windows support folder.
