Hi,
 
I'm trying to install Mountain Lion on this machine:
AMD Sempron 145 2.8 GHz Single Core Processor
6 GB RAM
MSI 760GM-P23 (FX)
Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6450 1 GB DDR3 PCI-E
450W PSU
250 GB HDD
 
*I know, it's amazing*


The progress:
Sound worked OOB (onchip)
Snow Leopard 10.6.3 running with legacy_kernel through ModCD


 
So the problems:
No QE/CI, rocking on 1024x768 through HDMI but I think this will get fixed when I get 10.8
No ethernet, which i think will come when I actually get 10.8 to work (Realtek RTL 8167)
When starting a sort of installed version of Mountain Lion it just restarts after the bootloader, probably cause of the kernel.
 
Kexts:
Spoiler

I'm open to try anything so give me suggestions.

Before starting the instalation of SL on my machine I wanted to be sure that I can use QE/CI on ML and this video gave me hope

uh?
 
you did not really understand the problem is not the graphics card, it is your AMD CPU, get CI/QE course but with artifacts.
 
So you have to go in 10.7 i386 , ok !? ;)

Well I don't know if that will make any difference.. but I got AMD Radeon HD 3000 onchip...
Also I don't know what is my best option. To run Lion on i386 or to run SL.
Actually am I able to run this graphics card with that said with QE/CI anyway?


EDIT: Following your guide, do I need NullCPUPowerManagement.kext?
