I didn't have to do anything except installing VoodooHDA 2.7.4. But, I have a problem with long bootup time, it stays on Apple logo for a minute doing nothing, and then loads the OS as it should. Tried some kext replacing and other stuff found on the forums, but nothing works for me.

Installed as MacPro5,1
Nothing in /Extra/Extensions

I got Mountain Lion installed using Unibeast 4.6.1 and Fabio DSDT, everything works super fast, no boot delay, except Networking.
All Marvell Yukon kexts I installed and every IONetworkingFamily updates I tried are all generating KP or boot hangs.
Any idea what to try ? I'm getting desperate on this...

try blaw's tweaks. it works great for me.
I have a question about agpm.kext. My Gtx 460 handle smoothly everything. however waking pc from sleep, it seems that the card can't be set in idle mode (as I suppose from the 10 degrees hotter than before pc's got into sleep). Any suggestions about editing the kext? Thanks much in advance

Hi,

Sorry to jump in after a long time but I have the same Asus/i7 spec (eccept I have an Asus vg card) and wondered if I had a go of making a dual boot with 2 separate HDs would this be a straightforward process.

I have a full (just bought it) Snow Leopard 10.6.3 and from what I have read most of the problems come from upgrading to Mountain Lion.
I am new to macs, but have no problems build systems from scratch.
