I recently purchased a copy of Windows 8 Pro to see if I could run it through bootcamp. I have a USB SuperDrive , so I thought it would be simple enough. However, I'm pretty lost on how to configure my bootcamp to work. I've aimlessly looked at tutorials and such, but none have been of much help. I know the Retina macbook lacks an optical drive, so I believed using a Super Drive would work. If anyone can shed light on this situation and help it would be greatly appreciated.

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
