I know this is a long shot, but maybe worth asking. (I've been reviewing the following thread: http://www.tonymacx86.com/showthread.php?t=79406) In this thread, I see that to boot both ML and Windows8 from the same SSD, it has to be MBR vice GPT. Does anyone know if a partitioned SSD can be used in a Fusion Drive setup? I'd like to get the advantage of having a SSD for both OSes, but also want to get the Fusion Drive advantage from my SSD+HDD setup.

My system is all new (no OS installed, all factory default settings):
ASUS Maximum V Gene
Intel i7-3770K
32GB RAM
CORSAIR Neutron 256GB SATA III SSD
Seagate 3TB SATA III HDD
ASUS NVIDIA GTX670-DC2 (2GB)
ASUS BD-R (may not work with ML - no biggie)

I've got a few HDDs (SATA I/SATA II) in an older computer that I will throw into the mix for data storage and archival purposes.

In the long run, I'll probably buy another SSD to throw into the mix, and then this won't be an issue.

Fusion drive and Win8 won't work together on same SSD. Use a different HDD/SSD for Win8
