Update: Replacing AppleACPIPlatform.kext with the SL version got me past that. Now it's stuck at "PCI Configuration begin" doing nothing.

Repairing permissions worked, actually. I was finally able to boot into Mountain Lion. Thanks! :)
Also apparently FakeSMC.kext didn't copy over even if I remember doing so (noticed this while trying to set permissions for it via terminal).

Anyway, ML didn't detect my ethernet card for some reason, so I don't have internet access. Any idea how I can fix this so I can start debugging everything else?

P.S. I have the 10.7 Lion Rampage III Extreme DSDT. Should I just drop this into /Extra/ on my install directory and it should work just like that? Not sure how to install it.

yes you can do that. but i copy and past. but 10.7 mite be diffrent to 10.8 dsdt file

http://rampagedev.wo...-mountain-lion/ try here for internet kext

you need to look up your motherboard internet chipset and then find the kext file look on the asus site in specfactions

find out your internet chip set asus web site and look for the kest that suits the chip set

Apparently my built in gigabit ethernet is an Intel 82567V-2. Though I can't see any ML kexts for it.

Thank you for helping me so far. Unfortunately that didn't work either. Installed the later kext from that topic, but still don't have ethernet even after a reboot.

Anyone here have the same type of ethernet card?

UPDATE: Got Ethernet working using M u l t i B e a s t, installed AppleIntelE1000e.kext and it worked like a charm. GTX 680 works OOB, so all that's left now is my X-Fi Xtremegamer card. :)

I've heard reports of certain X-Fi cards working using certain versions if VoodooHDA, so I suppose that would be my next step. Topic marked as solved. :)

Thanks for all the help!
