    No it is just one hard disk and it has 3 partitions one was for bootthink one for the Os and one for the install image those were made following your tutorial for 10.6.3 two years ago.
    For installing the new os I formatted the biggest partition and it I am using a usb to boot and install following your new tutorial.
    I am adding the Extra Folder maybe you find some problems there.

    Hello Tuen thanks for your support, I have pass solved the previous issue and was due to the ram I had 8gb in and what I did was to take out 2 banks and try again it went past the boot up to the installation when it asks for the language you want to use but after that i got an error that says that my computer is not compatible with Mountain Lion. Any idea of what I could do? On the hard disk there is a working copy of snow leopard 10.6.8 if it may help. I got the log and here it is:

    Hi All.
    I got same problem as addiss, and am using 4 gb of ram... lion worked flawlessly, but cannot get past the bootcache message...
    Addiss can you please acknowledge it is RAM issue and no other changes made?

    "using 64-bit bootcache playlist
    BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 No such file or directory"

    this is not the error. I get this at every boot, it's just the point at which the loading stops. the real problem is not shown, it's most probably because of graphics. i resolved the problem by installing older versions of the five NV kexts in S/L/E, an EFI string in device-properties and nvenabler64.kext in Extra/Extensions. this was for a 9400GT gfx card. At each update, i have to restore the NV kexts in S/L/E from Time Machine.

    Cheers for the guide and links - very helpful.

    Got an error indicating it couldn't install Mountain Lion, needed to add an smbios.plist file to the Extras folder to make ML believe it was a Mac Pro.

    Man, this is so frustrating! I've spent hours over the last 2 days searching and cannot find an answer.

    I have a successful ML 10.8.3 install with an Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 GHz edition installed. I have an ASUS P5K-E WiFi/AP motherboard with an Intel Core 2 Duo E6750. I don't have integrated graphics, so I had to use the 7770. I was able to install fine (at one point in the middle of the install the screen went white, but moving the mouse brought it back).

    No matter what I do, I can't get the sleep working? I'm afraid to use a DSDT because I can't seem to find one easily enough... it seems like the few I see mentioned when I google P5K-E DSDT have really customized versions and I'm pretty new to this, so I don't wanna start throwing in wrong DSDTs if I don't have to.

    I have a Sapphire Radeon HD7770 GHz edition, and putting the computer to sleep seems to be the only way to get this card to work.

    I boot to a white screen with a movable cursor. When I press the power button, nothing happens. If I come back after a few minutes, the monitor is off, but the computer and fans are still on... Moving the mouse or hitting the keybaord just brings me back to the white screen.
    But when booting, I only get a white screen with a movable mouse cursor. The spinning beach ball spins a few times, and the HDD light shows that it's working, but I can't see anything. I know that the sleep trick is supposed to get me out of it, but no matter what I do, I can't get it to sleep. When I press the power button on my computer, nothing happens. I know it might take long, so I hit it, came back to it in about 10 minutes and saw the screen was black, but the computer was still on and the fans were spinning. Moving the mouse or hitting a key on the keyboard turned the monitor back on, but I was back at the white screen. I'm not sure if that was auto monitor shut off or a sleep error.

    I've tried the SleepEnabler.kext to no avail.
    I've tried changing the Suspend Mode setting in BIOS from Auto to S3 Only, but that didn't work.

    I tried the tutorial here, but the instructions only say to install the HDAudio.kext after installing Mountain Lion, and "after reboot sound, network, and sleep should work."

    I'm able to get into safe mode, so I installed the HDAudio.kext. I also installed the Marvell one, which got my network working. But I didn't know what to do with the rest of the kexts, as I didn't want to overwrite anything that may have already been working. Also, there's a DSDT in one of the files, but I'm not sure if it's specific to my entire hardware configuration, and I've never used a DSDT before.

    If anyone can point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated!

    if you have a working installation on another drive, I can give you my dsdt and you could try it. if it doesn't work, boot into the other drive and delete it. that's usually what I do when in doubt.
    as for the kexts, I have FakeSMC, IntelCPUMonitor, IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector, Marvell88E8056, AppleHDA and some graphics-related kexts. all are installed in System/Library/Extensions using kexthelper. the installation is very stable, as much as my MBP. it has NEVER worked without the DSDT, from Leopard to M Lion. I don't think there's any graphics info on it, since I'm using kexts for that... but not sure ;)

    @ deaftolight - try using Chameleon v2.1 r1820 and Chameleon Wizard. Then modify the pre-made smbioses. It could help with the graphics,since HD6770 can definitely work, yours probably can too.
    Add Restart Fix and Graphics Enabler=yes too.

    Thanks for the reply!

    I used myHack to install, so Chameleon was automatically installed, as well as a FakeSMC kext which I didn't want to overwrite with the one from this site, and I have to double check but I'm pretty sure the IntelCPUMonitor and IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector are there (if they are default kexts that come with ML or myHack). The only kexts I've installed manually are AppleHDA, Marvell, and SleepEnabler (SleepEnabler of course didn't help).

    Feel free to send over that DSDT. I'll see if I can find something that allows me to view it on a Windows machine (which I'm on right now), and hopefully get a feel for what's going on in it.

    My other drive has Windows 7, so that won't work, but I guess I can make another partition on the same drive this installation of ML is on. I guess I'll have to wrap my head around these DSDTs. I also will have to research SMBioses, since I haven't encountered those yet.

    Here are some useful things and my dsdt. i made this for leopard and am still using it without any changes, although i've changed the config slightly.
    you could try borrowing a graphics card or getting a really cheap one on ebay and then doing this: http://www.macbreaker.com/2013/03/radeon-7000-hackintosh.html

    Thanks!

    I've seen that article, but I don't have integrated graphics on the P5K-E, nor do I have 2 PCI-e slots. I actually bought a geforce 210 just in case the 7770 didn't work, but I haven't opened it yet, because I was able to install ML with the 7770 installed. Since I only have one PCI-e slot though, I can't use this method (unless I'm missing something?)

    Hey, so I got it working! I tried your DSDT but it hung up at the IOAPIC part... probably cause you had a different amount of RAM than me?? (i have 4gb). So I did some research and ended up just extracting my own DSDT in windows, then patching it with the P5K-E Wifi AP patch on olarila. I used that DSDT and boom, I was able to sleep with the power button immediately. When I turned it back on I saw OSX in high res.
    I'm not sure if the patching was necessary or not cause I didn't try it without.

    Now the only problem is that I can't get audio! I tried the HDAudio kext from Tuen's blog, but that didn't work. Then I tried to install VoodooHDA for ML from here: http://www.osx86.net/view/2746-voodoohda_2.8.2_pkg_installer.html
    I didn't remove AppleHDA, but it installed an AppleHDA disabler. Regardless, this didn't work either. There are no devices to choose under Output in Sound. I'm looking around trying to find how to get audio working, but nothing seems to have worked yet. Any tips?

    Good stuff :D Delete any existing AppleHDA and the disabler and VoodooHDA and install the one attached and you should be good to go :D

    Thanks so much! I'll try it out when I get home. If I may ask, what's the difference between this kext and the one on Tuen's blog at http://blog.vondroid.com/?p=2631 ? I'm trying to figure out what the issue is, cause after extensive googling I can't tell if the kexts is supposed to be patched, or the DSDT, or something else... Lots of conflicting information.

    Also, there's more to removing kexts than just deleting, right? I need to do a quick rebuild cache, correct? ANything else?

    no idea what the difference is tbh.
    delete the kexts, repair permissions, and reboot with the flag -f -> that 'flushes' extensions.mkext.
    make sure if you're using Chameleon Wizard, you uncheck 'Use Kernel Cache', or it'll skip the -f flag.
    I run this small command (attached) that i keep in Applications/Utilities to rebuild extensions.mkext, just to be sure. do it before rebooting.

    Man, last night was a nightmare. I deleted the kexts and repaired the permissions and rebuilt the caches, and then i got hangs at boot. I tried all the flags, and nothing worked. I ran MyFix from the installation USB, and that got me to boot further, but it would hang at Checking catalog file. The HDD LED would stay lit during this time. I let it run for a half an hour until I realized it must be hung up and I reboot. Finally I found I could get into single user mode. I tried some commands there, like fsck -fy, which got through all the checks and said the volume was fine. Finally, I tried deleting the only foreign kext: Marvell88E8056.kext, then deleted System/Library/Cache/*. I hit exit, and it booted into OSX, but obviously with no Internet now. It makes no sense. This kext was what gave me Internet before, and now it won't allow me to boot. I tried reinstalling it with Kext Wizard, same hangs at boot. Tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it with Kext Helper, same thing. Now I don't know how to get Internet on my Hackintosh anymore! Anybody have any clue as to what's going on?

    P.S.

    I uninstalled the Marvell kext again, and installed AppleHDA.kext, rebuilt, rebooted, and I do have audio now. Just no Internet.
