Thanks tonymac! I finally got around to building my first hackintosh and i am extremely happy with it. This guide and the help fromt this community has made troubleshooting issues very easy.

Here are my specs:
Core i3 3225 w/ HD 4000
Gigabyte GA-Z77N-WIFI
OCZ Vertex 4
8GB Crucial Ballistix Sport
ML 10.8

Donating to Tony would be a great way to say thanks, and assure he'll continue to work on updates!

Okay some success finally with wol, I used an apple usb to ethernet device and it works like a charm. So that now only leaves bluetooth. I could buy one of these dongles but it seems pretty crazy to have to get something sent all the way from the states:-

Does anyone know of any other alternatives?

scratch that, I've found one:-

So wol works, but not wake on demand. I've been trying to completely disable the ethernet device when I do the app store breaks with "an unknown error occurred." Does anyone know how I can reset the app store somehow to stop it checking for this physical ethernet device?

Okay so I've looked into this and it seems that the problem is that the usb ethernet dongle isn't registered as built-in.

Can anyone tell me the best system definition to use for the H77N with HD4000 no HDMIi audio?

Thanks!

Ended up cloning the SSD to another drive, then re-installing Multibeast to the new drive. Disabling kext cache didn't work. Fixed but not sure why.

Airport update came out last night, installed it with no problems afterwards. One thing I noticed, the thing immediately woke from sleep just now and there was no mouse and keyboard delay. WEIRD!~:?:

Airport Utility is just an admin tool to manage Airport base stations. I would not expect this update to affect a machine's normal operation.
I was nervous applying it either way.
