Hard drive problem figured out. I forgot the 410's Motherboard is really picky about RAM. I had to try about 3 or 4 different combinations of RAM placement to get one that would work. Might be a bad stick of ram or just an overly picky Motherboard.
So far I have it loaded (audio and network work great), the only issue is the Video Card (Geforce 7900GS) does not initialize properly. So I'm stuck at 1024x768 with no acceleration. Weird thing is If I boot form USB to the OS X Installer the video works fine with all the bells and whistles. I'm using the exact same kexts, exact same boot loader and exact same Extras folder on both the USB drive and on the final install. But the final install will not initialize the video no matter what settings or combinations of kexts I use. I've tried NVEnabler64.kext and Natit.kext. Strange, huh?
As soon as I can track down a Mountain Lion compatible video card I'll start in on 10.8. That should be a trip.
