I bought a new Macbook and i'm trying to install windows on this computer with bootcamp (i added windows to my other macs too without problem) but this app won't gives me the option to choose the usb drive where he downloads the drivers and boot files... why is the first 1 - 2 step gone ? This way if the windows install starts it tells me there is a problem because no boot file is there... why i can't choose the usb ? did apple updated something ? :/ can't find any solutions... any idea ? Thank you

Please have a look at this article: http://www.idownloadblog.com/2015/10/01/el-capitan-boot-camp-windows-changes/

Just follow the next steps and windows should install without using a USB drive.

I recently had a similar problem. Apparently, BootCamp Assistant doesn't require a USB-stick anymore. In my case I used Brigadier – a neat little tool that will identify and download the correct Bootcamp drivers for you.

Concerning your boot problem, I am not sure what is going on. Did you check that your image file is working and that your version of Windows is supported on your Mac?
