    I'm a little confused. I just installed snow leopard using iboot (as I continued to get "waiting on drive" message with clean unibeast. To upgrade, do I just install mountain lion from the OS and run mulitbeast again? Or do I NEED to wipe the drive? Very noobish question but I have never been able to get unibeast to work on my sandy bridge (all compatible parts) build. Thanks

    In case this helps anyone else, I was unable to get Unibeast to install on a HP 16GB USB drive (v165w). The time to install Unibeast increased to over 43 hours, and after allowing the install process to run overnight (11 hours), it was unable to finish. This was tested on a 2009 Mac Pro Snow Leopard and a 2012 MacBook Pro 15" Retina. Just to confirm, I switched to a Kingston 8GB USB drive using the same process, which went without a hitch and finished within 25 minutes on both systems.

    I think for STEP 3.4 (the second .4, heh), you want to say "...skip past steps 5-14".

    You may want to put in the steps to change the GateKeeper settings BEFORE you show how to do the Muiltbeast thing...

    Thanks for catching that.

    I've cleaned up that portion of guide so that it is a bit easier to follow.
