    How do I use the Boot Camp 5 Support Software I downloaded from the web page?

    1. The download file is a .zip file. Double click it to uncompress it.
    2. Double-click the Boot Camp disk image.
    3. Copy the Boot Camp and "$WinPEDriver$" folders to the root level of a USB flash drive or hard drive that is formatted with the FAT file system (see question below for steps on how to format).
    4. Install Windows, leaving the flash or hard drive attached to the USB port of your Mac.
    5. Installation of the drivers can take a few minutes. Don't interrupt the installation process. A completion dialog box will appear when everything is installed. Click Finish when the dialog appears.
    6. When your system restarts your Windows 8 installation is done.
