Black screen after first boot Mountain Lion on Nvidia ION board

Hey guys,


Normally I don't resolve to an option like opening a topic for such a common problem, but I have no choice as my headache's getting worse every second. I have gone through a lot of topics with the same problem, but with no help.


I have an Asrock ION330 Pro on which I'd like to install Mountain Lion.

It has the following specs:


Atom 330 dualcore @ 1,6 GHz

2GB ram



After following this guide http://pastebin.com/Pkn7FB7z I succesfully installed Mountain Lion.

I needed to use the following parameters though: -v -x -f npci=0x3000 GraphicsEnabler=Yes UseKernelCache=No


Just after part 6 of the tutorial it says that I need to boot in my freshly new installed Mountain Lion OS.


I boot with -v and after a while the letters go away (so no problems i guess) and my display goes all black. Nothing.


The display doesn't go to sleep so it must've been getting some sort of signal.


After all the topics I've looked at I think it must be because my GPU isn't supported or something. I tried booting with GraphicsEnabler=No and still no luck.


What do you think the problem could be?
