This is more of a User Build than a Guide. Please either write a guide or I can move over to User Builds.

I have an almost identical build using the X58-USB3. I have an EVGA 550ti card installed. Everything is working except it will not boot on it's own. It hangs at APPLESMC (or something like that.) I do have fakeSMC installed but it still isn't working. I used Multibeast, the pre-edited DSTD from Tonymac's database. I have sound, video is working perfectly, just that one hang up. Ideas?
Thanks!

I've used the easy dsdt, because with the dsdt in the tony's database my lion freeze on every boot.
And with this i've used: voodohda 2.1, usb 3.0, chimera and realtek kext by lnx2mac

Can you further describe the installation process?

Thank you!
