Put this file in System/Library/Extensions and boot the installer again with -f -v

 

Once installed you will need to put the file on your HDD in the same folder and repair permissions with Disk Utility

 

AppleNForceATA.kext.zip

 

I tried Iaktos s3 v2 and i think it has that kext integrated. I'll try the boot flags and will report soon.

Thanks for the reply.

Try adding USBLegacyOff=Yes to the boot flags to enable your keyboard. You shouldn't have to enter it every time. You can add most stuff to the boot config.

Have you installed the following kexts in /System/Library/Extensions

 

 

AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext

ApplePS2Controller.kext

ApplePS2Keyboard.kext

ApplePS2Mouse.kext

 

and reset kext ownership and permissions:

 

 

sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/
sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/
sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions/
sudo kextcache -v 1 -t -a i386 -a x86_64 -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions

 

 

64bit versions of these kexts and AppleNForceATA.kext etc. are available in my verdant_Mountain_LIon_Support_Files_v1.0 from

here.....
