I have issues.


So here we go...

My main issue here is I cannot partion my system with Boot Camp Assistant. As far as I can tell I've followed every step correctly to this point.


  • Everything is updated
  • I had Microsoft send me a new, full version of Windows 8 Disk to use
  • I purchased a new 32gb thumbdrive and formatted it correctly
  • I downloaded the all the Windows Support Updates to the Flash Drive


So far I can't get past this error:



For some reason I only have two options for the size of the partition:






I'm using this thumbdrive:



And this is the current state of my iMac and Storage:





I only need Windows to run a single program so I really don't need anything but the minimum here...

Any ideas on what the heck is going on?


Thanks in advance,


iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Quad 2.93 GHz i7, 16GB DDR3, 2TB HD
