First, let me say that I know one does not simply go around changing the motherboard and obviously I expected that would lead to issues.
That being said, I changed to an Asus P5G41M-T LX PLUS (G41/ICH7, same chipsets I had before)

I began by removing my DSDT and old chameleon boot plist, also installed NullCPUPowerManagement again. As soon as Darwin starts, the computer reboots automatically and I can't even see what's wrong.

My question is, is there anyway I can take a look at the kernel's/chameleon's/ log (if there would be one so early in the boot process) to try and figure out what is wrong?

I know a fresh install will solve the issue but I want to try my damnedest to avoid that.

P.S. I can boot into an old iAtkos S3 installer without any issue. (Which is how I deleted/installed the files I mentioned previously, from Terminal)

:/ I also don't have my install media handy (and I can't re-download it just now because I'm on a 2006 Macbook and since it can't run ML; the App Store won't let me get it.)
Sucks that there isn't a lazy way out.

Are you booting with -f so it doesn't load the kernel cache?

Yeah, I was. Anyway, it's booting now. Apparently I'd botched some configuration in the BIOS.
