I had SL 10.6.8 installed, but went and got the retail of ML for my lappy which is :

Toshiba Satellite L755

i5 2430m
4 GB DDR3
1 GB GT525m
Intel H65
Conexant Audio
Atheros 9285 wifi

Installation went perfectly well and the Nvidia GT525m was picked up OOB, but no Atheros or the Conexant Audio. Used a kext I had for the Atheros which worked.

The first problem is I need to keep putting up kernel flags "UseKernelCache=No" else I get "still waiting for root device" and my HDD is on AHCI mode.

Second problem is I used ###### 5.2 to install VoodooHDA worked just perfectly with all the pins but suddenly today I started getting a KP so I just moved the driver.

Third problem is in the trackpad preferences there is an option for flicks but when I check that I cannot use the flicks / swipe on Safari or FF, my touchpad is a Synaptics 7.2

Any other issues currently NO.

Please help me with the above.

Ah I forgot, after shutting down ML I can restart the system without removing the battery :)

put legacy ahci kext into /Extra/Extensions and should fix waiting on root device. for audio, just try dofferent versions of voodoo until you get one that doesn't kp. 2.7.4, 2.7.3, 2.7.2 etc

Try this one in Extra/Extensions instead of legacy. If still problem after see here: Waiting for root device when kernel cache used; only with...

I don't know about swipe and what capabilities of your trackpad are or what they can be when using voodoo trackpad kext or apple trackpad kexts. I've only ever gotten 2 finger scrolling to work on hackintosh laptop, but all were slightly older than yours.
