thanks mate! i am having a little trouble now that its up and running...... random freezing.... im guessing thats maby because of my ram? im pretty new to the hackintosh scene.... i read some where that random freezing can be caused by faulty ram. the ram im using is 2x 1 GB optiplex 745 ram and 2x2Gb 800mhz ram... could the fluctuation in the rams Mhz cause the freezing? thanks in advance

I don't think so, but try to use only 2x2gb but don't forget that is a developer preview and u might experience such things as freezing. How was your build under ML?

strangely enuff i spent many hours trying to get ML up and going.... i never succeeded!! the best i could get was 10.7.5 with full QE/CI working, imovie n iphoto all working. i have a feeling it may have had something to do with the execute disable bit option in bios, although at this stage i happy to stick with 10.9 DP1 as its almost fully working! will try with just 2x2GB sticks thanks for the reply mate
