Hows everyone doing. I have a few questions. First off has anyone successfully gotten mountain lion to work on a dell t7400? Also I currently have two x5460 xeon processors installed and on the web in some places it mentions that there is problems installing osx on the dell with more than one cpu in while installing? why is this? Also does anyone know if this motherboard will be compatible with mountain lion?
Thanks Mitch.

ps heres my complete setup i hope everything will work

I got a dell precision 690, and my plan was to replace a bunch of the parts. I ended up with this:
Purchased new mobo from t7400 dell that accepts better processors
Purchased 16gb ram (8x2gb Hynix 667 PC2-5300F)
Purchases Patriot Inferno 60GB SSD
4x16 gb super fast ssd drives, so 5 total ssds including the 60gb inferno. should help when working on CAD, fcp7 project, premier pro and maybe fcpx
2 1TB Western Digital sata drives
Dell 750w Power Supply
NVIDIA QUADRO FX5600 (gonna try and do a Mac Pro rom image swap)
Purchased 2x Xeon X5460 (Quad Core 3.167GHz 12MB 1333MHz)
*Might buy 2 x5482 or x5492, realized the board can accept 1600mhz processors!
Need to buy new Dvd burner (unless i don't need one to install)
Got a airport expreme N apple wireless card in a pci adaptor from ebay
You think I would be ok with Mountain Lion? It seems that this would be similar to an 8-core 3,1 Mac Pro, except I think that may have the x5482 processors??

Don't know about the T7400 but the 690 runs Lion and Mountain Lion great. I have the kexts needed for Mountain Lion and the 690. The only thing I counld not get to work was the sound.
