Put this file in System/Library/Extensions and boot the installer again with -f -v

Once installed you will need to put the file on your HDD in the same folder and repair permissions with Disk Utility

Attached File  AppleNForceATA.kext.zip   42.65KB   17 downloads

Try adding USBLegacyOff=Yes to the boot flags to enable your keyboard. You shouldn't have to enter it every time. You can add most stuff to the boot config.

Have you installed the following kexts in /System/Library/Extensions


AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext
ApplePS2Controller.kext
ApplePS2Keyboard.kext
ApplePS2Mouse.kext

and reset kext ownership and permissions:


sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/
sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/
sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions/
sudo kextcache -v 1 -t -a i386 -a x86_64 -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions


64bit versions of these kexts and AppleNForceATA.kext etc. are available in my verdant_Mountain_LIon_Support_Files_v1.0 from here.....
