1. Bought Mountain Lion
2. Used UniBeast 1.5 to install to USB key - Booted into black screen
3. Tried all boot combinations - Still black screen
4. Added my Lion DSDT and SSDT files to the hidden Extra folder on the USB key and also replaced the org.chameleon.Boot.plist on the USB key with the one from my Lion system
5. Booted with -f flag - Worked !

After that, everything went smoothly. I upgraded my existing 10.7.4 system. Luckily it did not delete the NullCPUPoweManagement.kext which was already, so I didn't even need to boot from USB after the installer was done.

5.1 Sound, Network, Graphics - All working perfectly.

Only "issue" : Long boot time (a little less than a minute - twice than with Lion)
Geekbench score : 16,000 + (Don't remember right now) - Much higher than in Lion.
