Hello community.


When I want to start Boot Camp Assistant with only the bottom option ticked, and I click the Install button, nothing happens.


I can click it 10 times and still nothing happens.


When I tick the second and third options, it goes to about 2/3, then freezes.


I made the USB stick using


Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool



because when I try it with Boot Camp, it says


Your bootable usb drive could not be created.



Any tips how I can get it to work?

I have tried 2 different USB sticks and both Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)
