Hello everybody, yesterday I created the USB bootable modified image of Mountain Lion, then I installed it over my Lion hackintosh to preserve my files/installed programs.. well, the installation was fine, but now I can't boot Mountain Lion. for the first 2-3 times, in verbose mode, it seemed to boot, but it was stuck for about 5-10 minutes with the last string saying "AppleIntel1000e: runs 100Mbps RX/TX" or something like that. then, from my windows 7 HD booted up, I tried to modify/cancel some kext in system/library/extensions copying the kexts from Lion (which was working very well). note that the kexts from Lion were copied by me yesterday before installation. then, with the old ketxs from mountain lion copied, I tried to boot, but it was stuck at the first black screen with white strings... before the initialization of tha MAC framework it reboots without any error message... I tried to recopy the new kexts from mountain lion, but I had no luck, same problem: at the first black screen it reboots without any error message... what's happened?

P.S: please note my hardware config: Asus P8Z68-V Gen3, i2500k, HD6970, 8gb ram... in Lion everything worked like a charm... Posted Image

EDIT: I saw that before it reboots without errors, the last file he reads is the AppleHDA1062 into system/library/extensions... what's this file?

Your picture indicates a video problem, next step in the normal progression is transfer to the Mac desktop. What usually works here is to set GraphiceEnabler=Yes and try different framebuffers at boot.

For example: at the boot prompt, type -v AtiConfig=Gibba then hit Return. If that doesn't work reboot and substitute a different FB for Gibba. Others you can try are: Lotus, Muskgrass, Juniper, Cypress etc.

If you have a copy of Chameleon Wizard there are a number of FBs listed there you can try. You will probably find more than one that works. Chose the best one for your card and add that as a Flag in the org.chameleon.boot.plist.

so first I should try with -v GraphicsEnabler=yes? if that doesn't work I should try -v aticonfig=gibba or other "names"? the fact is that I have an Intel HD3000 integrated GPU in the i5 2500k... and I'm using this one. to use the hd6970 I will have to install some other drivers when I will be able to reach the desktop... I will try

EDIT: that image was picked booting with -v -f -UseKernelCache=No... if I use the commands you gave me, for example: -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes (assuming that this shuold be one of the correct commands toghether with AtiConfig=Gibba ecc...), the result is the following image

First try booting with PCIRootUID=0 -x -f -v
if that dont work try booting in single user mode (-s) and when root appears type these lines

mount -uw /
cd System/Library/Extensions
mkdir IntelBack
mv AppleIntelHD* IntelBack/
mv AppleIntelSNB* IntelBack/
exit

And see if you can boot.

before trying this, it booted in safe mode, just typed -v -x... what should I install with Multi++beast now? or maybe I should first try to boot without using safe mode? (why multi++beast is covered from words?)

this software is crapware, and read this :

We don't just "hate" them. We don't hate anybody. We want to keep moral standards high, safeguard genuine developers, and certainly we don't steal from our users

Because it's from a website that we (insanelymac) do not support. There's a topic on it if you want to read why. But back to your installation problem, I don't, nor have I ever used their (the blocked words) software to install any version of Mac on any of the PCs I've done. So I can't help you. BUT, there is a few guides on here if you're interested. I have a guide up that I used for my gf's Dell and my MSi you see in my signature. I'm actually on my MSi right now.

first, sorry for that. second, if you have other suggestions to help me installing kext to make the hd3000 recognized correctly and get sound working I'm happy to do this way! the problem is that it only boots in safe mode... can I always boot in safe mode without any problem? if it's so, the remaining things that don't work are audio and the integrated HD3000 in my 2500k, because mountain lion recognizes my hd6970...

UPDATE: I'm trying your method iFire.. in the meanwhile a question: why every time I have to type -v -x ecc... in the boot menĂ¹ my keyboard is recognized 1 time out of 10? (for example)... I often have to restart and try again until the boot loader recognize the keyboard...

I'm thinking that has to do with the -x which is safe boot. If I boot in safe boot my touch pad no longer works, and in a couple installation tries my keyboard wouldn't work. Try booting without -x maybe?

no.. because the problem is BEFORE the booting process...

So the bootloader isn't reading your keyboard? What method of booting are you using?
