I was running 10.8 on this machine, changed video cards last week and boom, it crashed and never recovered. I am now trying to put 10.8 back on using the thumb drive method. It installs but when I go to boot it up it crashes, usually an smc error...I took a pic..Any help would be appreciated. This machine will take 10.7.4 which I am on now...

After booting into the install when the create profile screen appears remove the flash drive in use. That should fix the issue.

Problem is, I am not using a flash drive..I used multi to install a boot loader, and no flash needed

Well got it all fixed..Seems that all I had to do was simple, run multi when done, pick the dsdt for my board, and the smbios for 3.1 and alc889 non-dsdt driver and the alc889hda driver..not the rollback one or the dsdt one. Booted and boom worked...Had to trick out some of the pciroot and npci to get it all running , but after 20 reboots, it all loads 20 times in a row..Thanks..

Heres the stats I finally got running..
