    At the moment, I don't recommend you to install Windows 8 on Boot Camp. Some people could install it, but Apple hasn't launched drivers for Windows 8, so if you want to use Boot Camp right now, install the 64-bit Windows 7 edition. Windows 7 is much better than Windows 8 if you are going to use desktop programmes
