  1. First of all let me thank @gbrownie for this awesome tutorial! I did everything as stated in this post and it worked like a charm. Here are my laptop's specs: CPU: Intel Core i5 2430 2.4Ghz-- Works RAM: 6GB (4GB+2GB) -- Works (lol) HDD: Toshiba Serial ATA 750GB -- Works Wireless: BCM4313(Won't work). However I'm using a usb wifi adapter ($7 ) which has a Ralink chipset. So, not a problem anymore. Ethernet: Didn't check. But I don't need it anyways. Sound: Altec IDT HDA Audio -- Works USB: 2.0 -- Works! Audio Ports: Microphone and Headphones -- Works Web Cam: Hp --Works VGA Out: Works HDMI: Works In addition, I was able to patch the kernel so that it will use all the cores of the CPU! (rather than using a single core) So now you don't need to use "cpus=1" anymore!!! Here's how to do it: Just download Lapic Kernel Patcher from here: http://www.osx86.net/files/download/316-lapic-kernel-patcher-v07/ Install it run it (You will need to be booted up with the cpus=1 in order to do this). Just click on "Patch". It'll show a success popup. Before rebooting, Open up Chameleon Wizard and remove the cpus=1 boot flag. Now reboot your machine. Voila! You will be able to use the full potential of your machine's CPU. Here's how I got to know about it: http://www.osx86.net/topic/18681-mountain-lion-only-boot-with-cpus1/ and, here's a screenshot for you guys to show that it's actually working Enjoy! Sahan.
