Hi, I have been trying to install Mountain Lion into my PC. I had been able to finish the Mountain Lion installation with the USB drive that I have created with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 2.1.1 and ML 10.8.5 downloaded from the Mac app store.


The only problem that I am currently facing now is that I have to constantly boot in safe mode(-x) and with GraphicsEnabler=No. I have tried the following boot flags and situations but to no avail.


Test 1: Tried with npci=0x3000 or npci=0x2000 (both times with GraphicsEnabler=No)

When this were entered, booting gets stuck at loading "com.apple.applefscompressiontypedataless".


Test 2: Tried with GraphicsEnabler=No and not in safe mode

When this boot flags were entered, booting gets stuck at "PCI Configuration Begin"


Test 3: Tried with GraphicsEnabler=No and safe mode

When this boot flags were entered, boots up nicely. However, certain applications, like safari, experiences flickering and stuttering. I guess might be due to the fact that GraphicsEnabler=No.


Does anyone knows what I can do, to boot up ML without me interrupting it and if the flickering and stuttering can go away. Thank you
