SSD is too small for dual booting on same drive IMHO- best to get a separate SSD for OS X and Windows. I would use minimum 128GB for OS X and 256GB for Win7/8. Basic rule of thumb for space on a HDD is 2x the space the operating system takes up on new installation for partition size if you have off line storage. Double that to 4x for SSDs as...

Mountain Lion does not run on Z97 - you need Mavericks or Yosemite for Haswell hardware. You might possibly get lucky and manage to install ML 10.8.5 if you have a discrete GPU that is supported - the iGPU in the Haswell Refresh CPUs is not supported in ML.

Wrong choices in MB - you duplicated some. Try re-install Yosemite and select only DSDTFree to begin with. Then come back and install audio and network. Select DSDTFree and look at the bottom pane of the MultiBeast window. You will see everything that will be installed from just this selection.
