Hi,

I managed to update my OSX to 10.8.3 Mountain Lion on my several years old Lenovo SL500 laptop. Only thing that doesnt work is the webcam, I havent managed to figure out camtwist yet, also wifi doenst work but I got a cheap USB wifi dongle ASUS N10 which works perfect with wireless BGN.
Strangest thing though is how it just happened to work. I had ages ago (like three years ago) installed SL and upgraded to 10.6.8 using iboot method, however when Lion came out, I tried to upgrade using the app store purchased copy but it broke my system and I couldnt figure it out. Eventually I got bored and did not use the OSX part of my dual boot with windows 7. I recently purchased mt lion and decided to give it another shot and tried to install over the old SL installation (which I later found out is not recommended) and lo and behold! it now works perfect!
I used multibeast easy beast option, I had previously used voodoo sound, voodoo battery kext, voodoo ps2trackpad kext and nvenabler.
