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

    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?

    Download problem

    I am running 10.8 already on my imac... i redownloaded Mountain Lion from AppStore, i left it to download in my office but when i came back in the morning, i saw that AppStore begins to download it again and the redownloaded version dissappears.. i think when this one finished it will dissappear too.. how can i download it manually without this trouble?

    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...).

    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.
