I used the very excellent guide Neilhart wrote for installing Mountain Lion on this board, starting with installing a patched version of the BIOS as he says to do and following every instruction exactly. Put in the kernel flags for booting and got the black screen of apparent death.

So then I figured out to follow the instructions to install the bootloader in the EFI partition, which lets it boot using my Radeon 7970. That blank screen as it boots can be a bit nerve-wracking! But the system has been in use for a couple weeks now and hasn't experienced any of the odd crashes I was told to expect in a hackintosh. Happiness and sunlight all around.
