Wait, before you do that, you can do this in an easier fashion. Just shrink the Mac partition via Disk Utility and format the new free space as FAT32.

The process for creating an extra partition in Mavericks hasn't changed much since Snow Leopard, so you should be able to create a partition using Disk Utility the same way you did in Snow Leopard.

The recovery partition for OS X 10.7 and above includes the following utility applications: Firmware Password Utility Network Utility Disk Utility Terminal In addition, the recovery partition allows you to use a version of Safari to better help you research and diagnose problems, restore from a Time Machine backup, and install OS X.

The (fixed) Pre-Installation Environment (boot.wim) of your Windows_7.iso doesn't contain the necessary drivers to use the USB3-interface of your Late 2013 Macbook Retina. So a "non-standard Windows7.iso" including "additional drivers" without injecting/implementing them into the boot.wim won't help much either. Btw BOOT (X:) is not your install drive but ...

I had a similar problem. I created a 30 GB partition and after deleting it there was unused space. I couldn't manually get the original full partition back because of disk errors.

There's a very simple way to see if this is a software or hardware problem. Power on your machine and hold down Command-V. This is the shortcut for verbose boot.

It installs all drivers: trackpad, graphic card, webcam, USB 3.0; as well as some bootcamp utilities that allow you to use the F10, F11, F12 as volume keys for instance. If you didn't get this part ...

Best way to do this, delete the FAT partition and re-expand your HFS+ partition to fill up the space. Use bootcamp assistant to create a bootable USB key (you'll need an 8GB one). It will ask for the ISO to make the installer. Once it is done boot from the USB key and follow the prompts. Bootcamp will partition your drive for you at the beginning of the ...

A fresh OS install won't reset the hardware, SMC or PRAM. It might be well worth checking both those are correctly reset before going so far as a wipe & install. Reset the PRAM first - hold Cmd/Opt/P/R at the chimes & wait for the chimes to happen a second time. SMC varies per machine, Mac Pro is sufficient to power off & leave the mains plug ...

Through experimentation, I found that disconnecting the Apple extended keyboard from an unpowered USB bus and reconnecting it directly to a USB port on the back of my Apple Cinema Display fixed this problem. Apparently the firmware that's necessary to choose which partition to boot from won't act on holding down the Option key otherwise.
