I bought the following items according to the recommended builds:

1 x PSU ANTEC| EA-380D GREEN RT
1 x HTPC CASE NMEDIAPC|HTPC 5000B RT
1 x MB GIGABYTE|GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 Z68 R
1 x CPU INTEL|CORE I5 2500K 3.3G 6M R
1 x MEM 4Gx2|CORSAIR CMZ8GX3M2A1866C9B

I can boot from the USB Stick with the option -x and once Lion is installed I can boot from HD again with option -x. After that I run Multibeast 4.2.1. I tried several DSDT files until I found DSDT-GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3-F9.aml here on the forums. After the install I can't get it to boot again.
What am I missing?
I know there are no guarantees but how good would my chances be that a custom tailored DSDT would work?

PS: Lion Install used to create UniBeast is version 1.0.4 I suppose its 10.7.2 ?

Is your Bios version also F9. The install USB will have Lion 10.7.2 if you downloaded recently from applestore otherwise you need to download and install the update after the USB install.

:banghead:
So I really don't know what to try anymore, I can boot the machine after installing from the USB Stick with -x. It seems to run fine but as soon as I install EasyBeast or MultiBeast it freezes on the grey Apple screen at reboot even with -x option.

So at this point my question is how to install Chimera on the HD so I don't need the USB Stick anymore and where the config file for Chimera is located to set the Video resolution.

Try to run with the -v flag and write down the last lines you get before the freeze that way we can guess something.

If it freezes at "Still waiting for root device", then I have the same problem.

So I installed DSDT-GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3-F9.aml with MultiBeast 4.2.1 and restarted with -v

Transcript Offline - Buffer pool allocate 181000 failed
nstat_lookup_entry failed : 2
nstat_lookup_entry failed : 2
nstat_lookup_entry failed : 2
nstat_lookup_entry failed : 2
macx_swapon SUCCESS

and then it stops

PS BIOS readout is F9, 4GB RAM installed and only 1 hard drive

does the dsdt you installed match the bios version you have currently on your board? if not you can try getting the same bios version from your board's brand website and flash it onto your board.

F9 is the latest BIOS from Gigabyte for this MB

What options are you using for multibeast? I have the same mobo as you and used these instructions at this link: http://tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=168&t=36674

I'm using lnx2mac ethernet instead of realtek ethernet driver. For me, the lnx2mac driver is a little more stable. Sleep still not 100% and also some random freezing as others are having, but I can totally live with it for now.
