For some reason, I am getting an error when I have follow the 'Boot Camp Installation & Setup Guide' which I downloaded and printed from Apple. The error is that when I get to the bit on the Windows 8 Pro installation, where you have to select the Partition called BOOTCAMP. I click the partition titled BOOTCAMP, and Iclick 'Drive options (Advanced)' and then I click 'Format' and then I click 'Ok'. After I did this, the Next button is still not allowing me to click it. The error is that 'The selected disk has an MBR partition table...' it still even says this even though I have tried 5 times. I am literally going to go insane soon lol, as I need Windows 8 so badly! Also, it's a disk copy not a USB copy.
