Beautiful! Will those MB settings work for pretty much any Ivy Bridge system? Does the GA-Z77-DS3H need anything in particular?

But still not happy i have to use a Mac to make a bootable Lion drive @@
What exactly is your expectation? It's a custom boot loader which then rebuilds the retail ML installion on the USB. You obviously have to have a Mac do download it, unless you had someone hand you a fat USB with the file on it. What is there to not be happy about?

The dvd is useless for this purpose, you have to download the Mountain Lion installer from App store.

FWIW, In my experience it has been useful to setup 2 partitions on the thumb drive. The first for boot and installation. The second for Multi east and any other post-install tools. (CUDA drivers, Kext utilities, etc...).

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.
My two pennies to help:

I used an HP labelled 8GB USB stick (v125w, made by PNY I think) and it took hours to load Unibeast.
