    USB 3.0 ports cause ML to freeze

    Are you using a DSDT file at all? I am using the same H77 chipset, not the same board, and did not have to add anything for the USB specifically. I have a Toshiba 1tb USB3 drive that I have tested on both USB ports, and additionally tested against the USB2 ports. I have no problem with that drive at all (the only USB3 device I have on hand) and the OS accurately identifies the protocol of any other devices I plug into the USB3 ports. I have tested speed as well to see the Toshiba drive runs ~3x faster on the USB3 ports than the USB2 so they are obviously being supported without any additional kext's or editing of anything. **I am using an extracted/optimized DSDT file though.** It would be a bummer if there was any difference in the mobile version. I have not seen any kexts or edits to provide USB3 specific support for the x77 chipset as ML already supports it..

    GeForce 285 GTX black screen (solved)

    Have you tried a clean install with just the last mod you did (via TimeWalker75a)? The GTX285 was a gpu option in 2009/2010 Mac Pro (custom build) - it was supported by Mac OS (same as 8800GT). I have used the same card in numerous test builds - never needed anything but PCIRootUID=0 to get to install screen, and GraphicsEnabler=Yes on a few occasions.

    Boot time of your Hackintosh?

    I have the boot rom enabled for the ASMedia SATA3 ports (ASRock H77 Pro4-M) so power button to Chameleon takes approximately 10-seconds including ASMedia port scan. Once the Apple boot screen pops up the spinner goes around (7) times and I am at the desktop.. =)
