I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Stuck at 65% with usb 2.0 flash drive and windows image on their also.  I will wait an hour or so, it went fast right up to the 65% and its just hanging right now

How large is the spaceyou have designated for the boot camp partition?

You need to reserve at least 20GB for the said partition.
20 GB is not really sufficient if you want to do anything or need to install any useful software.

20GB is the minimum required space.
