Hi, I'm trying to install Mountain Lion 10.8 on my Acer 5920g.
I replaced the AppleACPIPlatform.kext and the IOPCIFamily.kext with the ones of snow leopard 10.6.8 (which I have now working on this laptop) to go past the PCI Configuration Begin error, but now I'm stuck on ''Still waiting for root device''.
I've already tried the ''UseKernelCache=No'' and ''npci=0x2000'' but without results.
Does someone have a solution for this problem?

I forgot to say that I grave the version with the GeForce 8600m GS graphics card, not the one with the integrated or the ati graphics.
So, the GeForce isn't working also with extra kext (natit / nvenabler etc...) ?
'cause I'm running snow leopard in 64bit mode with natit.kext to make the full graphics acceleration working and I also managed to install the nvidia cuda driver.
And honestly I don't really mind about the 3d graphics acceleration, I'll probably use my hackintosh only for Xcode.
Thank u for your help!
EDIT: sorry, I noticed that I wrote in the netbook section also if I'm talking about a notebook.
I'm really sorry. Moderators, could you please move the thread? Thanks ^^

I am moving this to the correct forum: notebooks.
