Does Mountain Lion support the ASUS P5KC (Just the P5KC no versions) motherboard?

I have been wondering for a while now and trying to install Mountain Lion on my desktop due to a previous thread I posted here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=281856


I have a modded BIOS of the BIOS revision 1203 (needed more like) for AHCI for all sata ports (just to give you a more in depth view of my board) the link to where I got it from is here http://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-solved-p5kc-bios-need-ahci


When I used ###### I got an ACPI Kernel Panic, same goes for Lion DiskMaker. I am running on Mac OS X 10.6.8 using a (legacy patch), I even tried using the chameleon boot loader (which stated it needed a legacy_kernel) So I dumped the hidden legacy_kernel from the root of my "Hackintosh HD" (As I named it) into the root of the drive and nope nothing just spins and spins and spins. I don't remember what it was exactly but it was on the boarder lines of "clusters and IO headers".


Before it was just: Apple Logo for a split second, black screen, back to BIOS. But when I go into the BIOS to disable ACPI support it does the cluster hang.


If you need an insight to my specs here they are:



CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @2.4Ghz G0 (SLACR) Non-OC

RAM: Kingston HyperX DDR2-667Mhz (2x2GB) (Going to go 8GB or 4GB DDR3 soon (depending))


Sata DVD Drive

HDD(s): 250GB Seagate (SATA), 160GB Hitatchi (SATA)



Thanks in advance.
