Installation tip 1: Set motherboard BIOS to SATA AHCI mode and onboard video memory to Auto. You should have no problems booting up and installing OSX with Unibeast + Lion USB.

Installation tip 2: After booting into OSX for the first time, read and follow this guide to create a custom DSDT. viewtopic.php?f=14&t=35559. Use DSDT Editor to extract a stock, unmodified DSDT, then apply the following patches (all available from link above)
  • H67M-ITX motherboard patch
  • ALC892 audio patch
  • Shutdown patch
Fix errors, compile, place dsdt.aml on desktop and run MultiBeast with the settings pictured below. This will result in a stable Lion installation with onboard HDMI video, digital optical audio, and ethernet.

Hardware notes: Motherboard has 4 SATA ports (2 x SATA2 and 2 x SATA3) to accommodate all your drives. Case holds one 2.5" drive, one 3.5" drive and one SLIM optical drive. Perfect if you're looking to an OS drive + larger storage drive + slim optical drive combination. The aluminum front panel finish on the SG06 is very nice to the touch and really improves the overall appearance compared to the similarly designed SG05. The power supply rated at 450watt 80-PLUS provides plenty of juice for an upper mid-range graphics card and the case is designed to accommodate single or double width PCI-E.

MultiBeast Configuration for Lion 10.7.2​

Update April 2012 --

Added an MSI Cyclone Radeon HD 6850 PE/OC
http://www.amazon.com/MSI-DisplayPort-PCI-Express-R6850-CYCLONE/dp/B004HKIA2Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1335545583&sr=8-1

DVI works OOB with GraphicsEnabler=yes. Fully recognized as "AMD Radeon HD 6850 Series 1024 MB." HDMI works if you change bootflags to GraphicsEnabler=yes AtiConfig=Bulrushes AtiPorts=4, but this results in the card being detected as AMD Radeon 6xxx Series, which may cause issues with some games or programs.

Updated motherboard BIOS to samisnake's modified ASRock H67M-ITX v1.30

Nice tutorial Fox - I ended up getting this board for the mini-ITX. Just working on the install right now and was wondering if HDMI w/ audio works or if you have to do optical for the audio.

Cheers!

I thought I would come back and update this post as I did get HDMI video/audio working perfectly with OSX 10.7.3 and the Intel i3-2105 CPU which supports HD3000

I reinstalled using all of the patches listed above except for audio as I wanted to put that in the DSDT. I followed Toleda's great HDMI tutorial.
You will need to make the DSDT edits for Intel HD3000: viewtopic.php?f=162&t=31948

I did not have to make any binary kext edits to AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext, but you might want to double-check this section if you run into problems.

The only edited kext I had to install for audio was the ALC892 kext here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=42546

If you use the method I did above, please do not install any audio kexts in Multibeast.

Attached is my DSDT

Thanks for the info guys, I'm still waiting for my board and chip to come so may give this a go when they arrive.

So how are you all finding general stability and performance? Any issues such as sleep/waking from sleep?

Just added an MSI Cylone Radeon 6850 PE/OC to the build. Plays SC2 smoothly with maxed ultra settings at 1920x1080.
