After many successful Gigabyte and Assus based builds, I decided to go with dual Xeon hack:
2x Xeon E5530
Nvidia GTX 570 (GraphicsEnabler=Yes)
SSD for OS and couple other drives
Installation went smoothly (as many times before with my other hacks). However, after reboot, as soon as I get to country selection, system slows down to a crawl, with spinning beach ball appearing every couple of seconds. For example if I click on "show all countries" it will take about minute or more to show the list.
If I boot with -x (safe boot), I can finish the installation, create account and everything works as it should. Without safe boot, I get to the login screen, and again same story ..... dead slow, beach-ball.
This shouldn't be GPU issue because same card is working with graphic enabler on two other builds.
I'm using only fakesmc and kext for Intel network adapters.
If somebody that have Supermicro X8DAE working with Mountain Lion, can post the following files, that would be great! : DSDT,
and kext used
