So after several different Hackintosh computers I'm at my latest. Shame it seems I've forgotten most of what I've learned before, but I'm up for more learning!
Well the computer at hand, was up for a good price in the UK, all things considered it should hopefully work out after rebate at £375 but I digress as this topic is about getting Mountain Lion on the device.
As you can see from my signature I'm not new to this, having a few computers which have been tinkered with over the years. Hopefully the experts, amateurs and the other lurkers will help me into getting mountain lion installed and fully functional on this Samsung Ultrabook.
Some tech specs first:

Story so far:
Purchase Mountain Lion £13.99 App store, long download!
Try all sorts of methods to get unibe@st to work on making a USB bootable stick and get frustrated at it not booting.
Eventually remove the HD from the Samsung Laptop and install ML 10.8.1 to it from another computer (GUID partiition)
Install Chimera 1.11 to HD to enable booting from HD
Boot From HD, lots of errors on verbose boot, so many graphics errors I can't remember them all.
Finally I've settled on the following:
1)Fresh install of 10.8.1
2)Install Chimera 1.11
3)Use the following as my chamelon bootlist data
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1366x768x32</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>-v</string> <key>RestartFix</key> <string>No</string> </dict> </plist>
4)I'm using the Macbook pro 9,2 SMbios plist
5)Install the Following attached kexts to get Wifi (but no success with bluetooth).
So this is where I'm upto, the internal screen works but I don't have QE/CI. I've tried all the available options on the IntelHD platform ID (from 0-9 and AB) but am unsuccessful.
On one of them, string no 3 I believe and Graphics enabler off I get full QE/CI on my HDMI connected monitor but my internal laptop screen is blank/black.
b)If I boot from the HD, the trackpad doesn't work. After finally getting a unibe@st installer working, I can boot from it and select it to boot the HD then the trackpad works.
c)USB ports don't work aswell as a whole lot of other stuff.
If someone could please assist me in helping to fix this laptop I would really appreciate it.
Also I'm trying to get back into editing my DSDT, but I'm failing miserably so help is appreciated!
As far as I can understand the spec is very similar to the ASUS UX32VD.
Thanks in advance for help received.
