Open Boot Camp Assistant, click on the Print Documentation button. Read the documentation carefully.

I've done it already, I don't believe I'm messing anything up.

Do you have a retail Windows DVD inserted into the optical drive?
If you don't know anything about Windows, what NTFS is or how to format a bootable Windows drive, then you should take the computer to an Apple retailer and arrange for a genius to help you out. Virtually, the entire process is outlined in the documentation you printed out, so I question how well you've read it.

I have a Mac Retina and it doesn't have an optical drive, so I have it downloaded on the computer. I'm using an 8gb flash drive and a 1TB external HD. I mean I know how to do all that stuff but can't get to it, or Its not working. As for the apple genius, that my friend is why we have the internet. If this persists, I guess maybe if it comes to that I'll have to, but I'm going to try this for now.

You cannot install Windows that way. You will need a retail, bootable Windows DVD or one made from a purchased Windows downloaded ISO. You can use Apple's USB SuperDrive since you don't have a built-in optical drive.

I'm pretty sure I've read a bunch of things that say that you can instal from a USB.

Well I did it, and did it with a 2 USBs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXcctTiK_RE this link helped me. Just follow it carefully. What I did was only have the .ISO image on 1 usb and then the drivers on the other. Hope this helps anyone having problems.
