same issue. additional info -- creating a NEW bootcamp, and a fresh windows install does work on the new MBP retina;
Winclone+sysprep is not receiving the correct drivers.
The winclone+sysprep image is bootable in VMWARE fusion, and then I tried to be clever and manually install the bootcamp drivers from the USB image. (The \Bootcamp\setup.exe fails, the \bootcamp\drivers\apple\bootcamp.msi fails, the various \bootcamp\drivers\apple\apple*.exe appear to work ... but chipset and motherboard drivers appear to be inside of the bootcamp.msi)

I wouldn't be opposed to doing a fresh install, but I really don't want to have to migrate and reinstall all of my applications, unless there's an easy path for doing that, which I haven't yet heard of
I'm also interested in what route you took to do a fresh install, because as noted I was unable to use mouse and keyboard even when booting off my Bootcamp Assistant-prepared installation thumb drive.

The same issue for me
My machine is the new high level 15" 2013 late MBPR.
I use the bootcamp to make the boot USB and download the bootcamp support softare.
When I use the USB with Win8 to boot and install, I can finish the installation.
But I will fail to use the keyboard and touchpad after win8 first boot. I think the driver didn't include in the bootcamp software.
Finally I use the PD9 to boot the bootcamp system. The function is normal for everything.
When I login in the win8, I fail to install the setup.exe which is inside the bootcamp folder.
This bootcamp can not support this new 2013 late MBPR.
How to do?

The answer for a new install of Windows is -- patience. What I found is that the keyboard and trackpad do not function immediately even when the dialog items are apparent on the screen -- I came back to the computer an hour later, and they keyboard and trackpad were functioning ... I am imagining that the drivers took a while to load properly from the USB, and finally did so.
As for the Winclone image of the older bootcamp ... I am noticing that the USB has the folder for pre-exec drivers ($WinPEDriver$), and that the Winclone image does not ... some more experiments to try.

I've been waiting for about 15 minutes at the first installation dialog and the mouse/keyboard hasn't come up yet. If it does come up, I'd like to try and do a repair installation on top of my Winclone'd image and see if it helps.

I have tried windows 8.1 preview version. The boot camp can not support for this version.
I think the key problem is for boot camp.
Apple needs to upgrade the boot camp software support.

and....that was unsuccessful. I waited a good 30 minutes and they never came online. Is your MBP the 750m version, or the version that only has an Iris Pro?

anyone has the solution to fix that boot camp software issue?
Don't you meet this problem?

just in case anyone else runs into another related issue: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929828
sysprep can not be used more than three times over the entire lifetime of a windows image.
I have been able to consistently install a new windows image on the late-2013 MBP using the bootcamp assistant, but only when I allow the bootcamp assitant to run the entire install process from USB stick, including an auto-restart from MacOS to the USB start partition.
The install on the late 2013 MBP does NOT work for me if I boot MacOS [using "OPT"-key boot selection] before I allow the USB image to run to completiotn of a full windows install.

I think I found the answer from apple.
We can not use the USB3.0 to do the installation.
We need to change to USB2.0. Then do it again.
The problem is solved by it.
notice: You must use the USB2.0 for whole progress.
I success to install the win8.1.

Can you explain the process of using USB 2 instead of 3? Link to an Apple KB article perhaps?

Thanks for the heads-up on Sysprep.
Sadly, the bootcamp assistant doesn't seem to offer an option to reboot and install for you without running the partitioning tool from within it.

Please view this page. I think the new 2013 late MBPR has the same issue.
So I try it. When I use the USB2.0, everything is fine.

huh, I'm pretty sure my flash drive is USB 2, but I'll check. Thanks for the tip.
