Hey guys, i want to share my tutorial how i managed to work DP3 on my setup.
First of all make sure you have a spare Mac OS capable of booting, you will need it.

1. Use first 4 parts from http://thetecherra.c...tart-to-finish/
2. In part 3 there is a bit confusing information.
- After step 6 Do not click on the USB disk itself but on its partition and restore Mac OS X Base System there. If you click on the disk itself it wont let you restore unless you unmount its partition and even this wont help because the restore wont work (it did not for me)
3. Continue with rest of steps.
4. Boot the install USB disk, type -x npci=2000 GraphicsEnabler=No
5. Install ML
6. Now you have to boot your spare Mac OS because you wont be able to boot the ML. No chance.
7. On your spare Mac OS, download chameleon 2.1 rc1970 from http://www.osx86.net..._mountain_lion_[updated_...html
8. Install it on your ML drive, i did not select any additional options.
9. Using some kext utility (kext wizard) install http://www.osx86.net...tform.kext.html to your ML drive. This will eliminate the "waiting for nothing" delay during boot.
10. Also install your specific kexts (LAN, Audio, AGPM) from your Lion. They should work. Atleast my did.
11. Now with all this i was still not able to boot. Always ended with "ACPI_SMC_Platformplugin: pushcpu_CSTData - CST evaluation failed"
12. Now its all about your DSDT. If you have running 10.7.X with your DSDT just copy whole /extra folder to your ML root directory. Make sure your dsdt.aml is inside and properly linked in org.chameleon.boot.plist file.
13. You should be good to go.

If some one want to check my chameleon file or some one need dsdt file for asus p6t ws pro just let me know.
Maybe this will help even ppl with different setups.

Cheers

This MB does not have SATA3 controller. Or do you have it like me using SATA3 PCI-X card?

I have the same Asus P6T WS Pro as yours.
I have installed ML 10.8 DP4, 10.8 GM, and 10.8.1 successfully.
The only one missing is AD2000B audio.
Currently I am using HDMI audio of ATI HD 5850 card.
Do you have working kext for AD2000B now ?
Thanks.
