Kliuch Turbostar 7 Skachat
turbostar, thanks for the response. In frustration, after many fails, I bought an optical drive for $39 US and installed Windows 8 from a DVD. Even that did not go smoothly, but finally it worked. Bootcamp even launched itself and installed all the drivers during the Windows install session. Not sure how that happened-- I did leave the USB connected with the Bootcamp software on it-- maybe it eventually read into the process. Who knows. Good luck to everyone else.
