I ran an ID program to see what chips are on my M/B

looks like all intel chips so is it a intel M/B ?
CPUX said model MAHOBAY [NO DPK ?]

what is [no DPK] ?
anyone know an intel model # as MAHOBAY gets few google hits and no info

audio = intel 7 series C210
sata = intel 7 series C210
usb = intel 7 series C210
SMBus = intel 7 series C210
MEI controller #1 = intel 7 series C210

only intel but not 7 series C210 chips
82579LM gigabit network controler
82801 PCI bridge
Q75 express chipset LPC controller [ISA bridge] [[[ so is this a intel Q75 M/B ???]]]
xeon E3-1200 2/3rd Gen Core processor DRAM Cont [Host bridge]
xeon E3-1200 2/3rd gen core processor Graphics C [VGA compatib ..]

so what is this M/B [ or similar M/B that I can cope a script]
and what boot loader
kexts needed ?
ad on cards and or what ever else do I need to start with ?

Run Mountain Lion: 10.6 won't support your integrated Intel HD4000. Use your wife's Mac to buy ML from the App Store - buy the app, it will work better and cost you only the price of two Big Mac combos, $20 - and then download Pandora.app here on Insanelymac to make your installer.

Good luck!
