Hi There.


Wondering if anyone has solved this problem.


I am attempting to install Windows 8 (Full Version) on Boot Camp. OSX 10.8.3. All goes well until Windows 8 reboots for the final time during the install. A blue vertical bar on the left of the screen shows up taking about 20% of the screen. The remainder of the screen is black. Nothing inside of the blue bar (like a login screen) but the mouse arrow can be moved. Hitting Enter, etc does nothing.


It appears that Windows doesn't like the video configuration. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be an opportunity to install the Apple drivers for Windows 8. There is no setup screen, can't get to the desktop, anything.


I have a rMBPro 13" Late 2012.


Has anyone solved this one?


Thank you.
