So I want to install Windows 8 via a flash drive . But I don't know how to do it because when I go through the bootcamp setup it asks for a disk. So is there some software to trick my computer into thinking that my flashdrive is actually a disk?

Does your Mac have an optical drive? If it does, you're not going to be able to install Windows 8 via the flash drive. I imagine there may be a work around but you'll have to do some searching.
