TonyMacX86 is your best bet. If you follow their hardware guide completely, you will end up with a Hackintosh that install Apple software update without a lot of problems. From my research, there's 2 ways to do this:

1. Get your hands on an existing Mac and build the 10.8 install USB key.
2. Use iBoot Haswell disk and Snow Leopard 10.6 retail disk and build the 10.8 install USB key.

Apple still sell the 10.6 disk online but 10.7 and above is only available as an iTune download. If you're using Haswell you must use 10.8 because it's the only one that supports Haswell properly.
