Basically it has a T7250 C2D, 4GB DDR2, Nvidia 8600m GT. I created a copy of the HDD on an external drive and use it to test install 10.8.2 and I am running into plenty of problems.
I used the 10.8.2 Combo update and before the restart I replaced the AppleACPIPlatform.kext and rebuild the cache using Kext Utility. I do not have oemsmbios.kext in FakeSMC, so that isn’t a problem.
I reboot normal with no flags and it freezes on the Apple screen with the pinwheel.
I use –v and it stops in different places every time. Sometimes get KP, sometimes not.
I use –f and it stops in different places every time. Sometimes get KP, sometimes not.
I’ve booted with useKernelCache=no and it will boot sometimes, but it eventually locks up.
I’ve booted with graphicsenabler=no, again, it will boot sometimes, but eventually locks up.
I cannot boot to safe mode using –x no matter what I do, freezes at the apple screen.
Tried replacing Nvidia kexts, got KP.
Anyone have any clues on how to fix this?

Second picture with beach ball is usekernelcache=no graphicsenabler=no -v
Third picture with en1::IO88211Interface is with usekernelcache=no -v
Fourth picture with Waiting on <dict ID="0"> is with graphicsenabler=no -v
I also did another boot with graphicsenabler=no -v -f and it got to the desktop, but froze immediately.

As for the 10.8.2 update, I stopped messing with Mountain Lion on my 1720 because its just not worth it since no one has gotten hardware acceleration with the X3100 GPU. My focus for now is on earning some money to replace my laptop so that I can get back into testing OSX.

Any chance someone got up to 10.8.4 on this type of computer yet?? If so, HOW?

Ok, so I got 10.8.4 installed. I just copied all of the kext I used to install 10.8.0 minus AppleHDA and IO80211 and rebuilt kext cache. Computer boots properly without any boot flags. Only problem that I have is my HP BCM94322MC that worked perfectly fine in 10.8.1 is not being recognized. If I use the modified kext from my 10.8.1, the card shows up but I get the connection error. Anyone have any ideas?

Ok, so I got 10.8.3 installed and everything is working like before. Still looking to fix the wifi in 10.8.4.

Ok, I lied. I don't have QE/CI in 10.8.3. Anyone know how to fix that?

I think I have the total workup for getting from Blank disk to 10.8.5 with everything working except for shutdown and restart. I am going to do the full upgrade to 10.8.5 tomorrow and if anyone wants, I will post the process, just let me know. It should work for anyone with an Inspiron 1720/Vostro 1700 with an Nvidia graphics card.
