Get a USB flash drive. Then put the flash drive on your Mac. Open Bootcamp Assistance from Applications > Utilities folder.
Select Create Windows 8 Installer disc. Select the ISO file and follow the onscreen instructions to setup a Windows USB drive.
After creating the Windows USB drive, open Bootcamp. Click Install Windows 8 and follow the onscreen instructions to install Windows.
Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting.

Just uncheck the option "Download Windows support" and follow the onscreen instructions.
