It appears that the Windows 8 install disk doesn't like the Hi Res screen on the retina MacBook Pro. I used an older vga monitor with the white Macbook connector to finish the installation. The older monitor forced the install to a lower resolution and from that point onwards, it was easy.

I have the same issue.
Is that an extra connector that you bought separate from the computer? After you finish install, we're you able to use the retina screen?

Yes, It is the dongle that connects the MBPro to a standard VGA screen. Something like $30. Install the Windows 8 files using it so that you are viewing on a separate monitor. And then install the Bootcamp files from apple. Then reboot without the additional screen attached. Note, the font sizes in Windows 8 are a bit wierd due to the retina display. Just FYI.
