    Hello everyone !

    I'm ready to setup my first desktop Hackintosh :) During the past I had a successful install on my Netbook with Leopard. Since then I now have a 13" MacBook Air and a MacBook Pro :)

    So here is the desktop config :

    - Gigabyte GA-H55M-UD2H (F11)
    - 4x Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU 540 @ 3.07GHz
    - 4GB RAM (1066MHz if I'm right)
    - NVIDIA Corporation GF106 [GeForce GTS 450] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) (Also from Gigabyte)

    First try

    I created a Unibeast USB drive with no options.
    Booted and got the installer showing, until the langage screen selection. There, I couldn't move the mouse at all or type with keyboard, BUT the screen resolution was a nice 1920x1080.
    So I gave up and tried another time with some modifications :

    Second try

    Using the same USB, I added the DSDT-GA-H55M-UD2H-F11.aml renamed to DSDT.aml into the hidden Extra folder on the USB drive.
    I could use the mouse, the keyboard and the setup went fine ! But, the screen resolution was low, something like 1024*768 or 800*600

    When I tried to reboot on the partition where I installed Mountain Lion, I got a kernel panic.
    Verbose : I was stucked at :
    ACPI SMC platform plugin::start - waitforservice(resourcematching(appleintelcpupowermanagement) timed out

    I tried to remove the AML file on the usb key, same problem.

    Note : I'm using the Nvidia DVI out, with a VGA adapter connected on a 22" screen. I don't use the onboard VGA out of the Motherboard.
    I also use the rear panel audio out of the motherboard, not the HDMI of the Nvidia.

    Do you have any advice for me to solve this problem ?
    I heard my hardware is likely compatible with 10.8 but I couldn't go further :(

    Also, if I can get to the desktop, what options should I choose for my MultiBeast post install ?
