Installing Mountain Lion on a GA-Z68Z-D3H-B3 with ATi V5770 I have been able to get just about everything working except audio. I have tried many of the suggestions I have found here, but nothing has worked. On a previous install from scratch I was able to get audio working if I didn't boot into safe mode, but then it takes longer to boot to the login screen and then at the login screen it pauses for several minutes before I can use the keyboard or click the mouse. The mouse will move, but I get no response from a click with the mouse.

So my question is this, what is causing the pausing and how can I fix it? I'm assuming that the no audio is because I am booting into safe mode.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

Do you mean Z68A-D3H-B3 or something else? As far as I know, there is no Z68Z MB. The Z68A, like the others, uses the 889 chipset. Select the appropriate combo of AppleHDA and ALC889 depending on whether you are using DSDT or not.

Yes, A, not Z. They are kind of close on the keyboard and I must have slipped off the A to hit the Z. :)

Got the DSDT, which I added. I added the DSDT ALC889 using MultiBeast. I think the big problem I have to solve is the safe boot option. If I can get around having to do safe boot, then I think the audio might work.

And you have the ati 5770 graphics, correct? Do you have GraphicsEnabler=yes?
Can you boot with -v and post the screen where you get the kp so we may see what's causing the kp?

Yes, I'm using the v5770 graphics card.

Yes, I have GraphicsEnabler=yes.

It doesn't KP, it just stalls for about 5 to 10 minutes on boot at the login screen. The mouse moves, but you can't click on anything and the keyboard is locked out. I can so the -v, but it will probably still get to the login screen and just freeze again. I'll certainly try it and see if something comes of it though. I can do it at about 6:00 MDT. That's about midnight GMT.

Thanks!

At least you are able to boot. Sounds like there's a kext in there that is causing a conflict. You may see something to tip you off if you boot in verbose and see the boot process hang for more than a few seconds along the way. It could be something left over from Lion or a different video card. I'm running essentially the same AMD 5770 video card on a Z68X-UD3H-B3 MB. Are you experiencing any other problems (other than sleep and sound)?
Make sure Voodoo isn't in there, and I'd suggest deleting the AppleHDA.kext (or rename it) and any other audio kexts like ALC889 for now.

I ORIGINALLY had Lion installed and updated to Mountain Lion, and there were NO problems. I then did something that messed something up just a little (can't remember now what caused me to do this) and so I decided to load Mountain Lion instead of going back and doing Lion and updating. So it is a clean install from a Mountain Lion USB drive (installed multiple times now). I have already gone through to remove all the various audio kext's and it still had the problem. Hopefully there will be something from the verbose boot that will point to the problem if it has a longer pause in the boot.

Please also include hardware (drives and external hardware). Are you using the F11 bios or UEFI u1a (you said you have a dsdt so I'm guessing the F11).

So, I boot with -v and no -x, right? It now works, though the boot is slow. If I don't put the -v into the boot parameters, it does the apple logo with the spinner until it comes up with the small square with the diagonalled circle (international symbol for "no" or "don't"), then it just sits there forever. If I put the -v in for the boot params, it goes all the way through to the end of the sequence, and boots to the login screen that works with the mouse clicks, the keyboard, and when I get into the desktop it has audio working. I don't know why it works, but it does.

Sorry for the delay - got sidetracked with stuff last night.
You don't have an Extra/Extensions folder do you?
Are you using MacPro 3,1 System Definition?
Are you using the latest bios version?
It would be useful to see your list of hardware too.
Looks like there may be a few issues from the above.
1. This isn't a problem per se, but unless you are using the serial port, I would disable it in the bios.
2. For now, delete the fakesmc plugins (look at the MB documentation for a list of the kexts it installs).
3. Make sure NullCPUPowerManagement.kext isn't in /S/L/E
3. It looks like there may be an issue with your bluetooth adapter. If you can, for now remove it and reboot. Obviously you'll lose the trackpad for now, but this can be reinstalled later.
4. Use one of the utilities to rebuild the kernel cache.
