I downloaded Mountain Lion from a friend's Mac and made my Unibeast drive.
I start disassembling the old but still working Powermac G5 and start cutting out the back panel further build in the DVD drive and made the hard drive bay fit under the dvd drive. next i made 2 metal panels for the motherboard tray then i made the back panel plate and and put him to the back. i also made the 2 Apple logos black and i made a button for the DVD drive and as last i ordered a custom G5 to ATX cable.
You can see more pic's here in my PowerMac G5 project album http://www.tonymacx86.com/members/439652-rick26/albums/photo-s-powermac-g5-project.html
The installation went almost smoothly i needed to use the onboard video card (the Intel HD 4000) and 1 monitor because my GT430 did not work for the installer.
Network worked in the installer after that i configured it with Multibeast.
After the installation finished i used this Multibeast configuration:
After Multibeast i installed Combo update 1 & 2 luckily, I had no problems after installation.
I installed the Cuda driver version 5.0.36 for my GT430 Graphics card.
Good thing is that my card is detected in OS x and i can boot without any problem in OS x but it only works with 1 monitor i use DVI and VGA because the monitors are old and doe not have HDMI, so i am still working on that.(any help would be appreciated)
Soon i will start testing an Nvidia Geforce GTX470 to see if that fix my monitor issue.
I had succes with the GTX470 and i am now using it as you can see on the photo's, there is only one problem the card gets pretty hot when i am just playing video's on youtube the card gets around 60 degrees and when i play a game on Windows it overheats.. so yeah.
Here is my Chameleon boot.plist:
I used Novabench and Geekbench as you can see.
New bench score.
