So I have successfully install Mountain Lion 10.8 using the following guide.

http://www.tonymacx86.com/61-unibeast-install-os-x-mountain-lion-any-supported-intel-based-pc.html

I had successfully booted into the machine using the USB-HDD, then I continued with the rest of the setup. I needed to install network, audio, and graphics drivers.

Up until this point I had no issues with my usb keyboard and mouse. After I had select network and audio, decided to hold off doing the graphics that time and multibeast had finished running;

I restarted the machine. I used the USB-HDD to boot back into my newly install Mountain Lion, and I was greeted with the login screen and USB keyboard and mouse were enabled.

So two things I would like to resolve, get the keyboard and mouse working. I would also like to know how to boot into Mountain Lion without having to constantly use USB-HDD.

I have tired. USBBusFix=Yes as the arguments when booting to no avail. I also had no problems with any of this during setup. I think it has something to do with the login screen.

I would appreciate any help that can be provided! its my first time doing this and fairly seemless setup (kudos to the community here)!

So I have been messing around with multibeast all day. Chimera doesn't seem to want to work. I have been booting using USB-HDD all day.

This is my 4th resinstall of the OS.

I would really appreciate some guidance here. I am sitting here with a mute, internet-less computer.

Multibeast for Mountain Lion doesn't seem to be working here. :(

Hey there. I am using the P5KC too
I am currently on Lion only, didnt purchase Mountain Lion yet
Anyway, i will try my best.

Back to the topic

Can you tell me concisely why chimera doesnt work?
did you miss the PCIRootUID=1 ?

about device kext
first, you need to know that ML is a 64bit system, you gotta use 64bit kext in order to drive the device

In Lion I use
AttansicL1Ethernet.kext to enable Build-in Ethernet
VoodooHDA.kext to enable Audio (need pin config)

Think you can start by searching the 2 64bit kext mentioned above

about USB, mine just work fine w/o any patch, kext in Lion
I think its the same case in ML

Sorry for my poor english

Ron,

The P5KC bios found here worked for me and gave me the AHCI function back in the BIOS : http://www.mediafire.com/?r0l68k1x2ddnn#aun66wtntrak6

Hi

So how do you flash the bios with the linked downloads.... Do I need all of them? Which ones should i download to enable me to flash my bios, and how do i use (sorry noob to flashing bios) I need to flash as im having issues with AHCI visibility.

When i install with unibeat and mavericks, I get to the installation screen, but disk utility only sees my USB.... Really annoying.

I can install mav on an external drive via a sata to usb converter, however I want mav installed on my internal hd.

Thanks in advanced peeps
