I seem to lose display signal after the gray apple screen. In verbose mode I don't see any errors, and after it gets to [PCI configuration begin] I lose display signal all the same. With graphics enabler disabled, same exact story.

...after this screen there is apple logo on grey background and its stays like this...

Try all available HDMI/DVI/DP video ports, systematically, and then with/without "GraphicsEnabler=No" flag, shut down each time you swap connectors.

Learn how to ssh into your Mac and run a "sudo shutdown" or "sudo restart" to shutdown/restart instead of just pulling the power when you can avoid it; this works even when there's no video if you have "Remote Login" enabled in the "Sharing" pane of System Preferences.

I found out the hard way that in ML my DVI port stopped working although I get the grey apple during startup via DVI...was time consuming and frustrating to isolate it down to the HDMI displaying video instead.

Finally got the installer to show using PCIRootUID=0. During midinstallation my graphics dropped (display had no signal) but I let it sit and in about 10-15 minutes my computer restarted. I booted into my system, it stucked on the spinning wheel. I tried again in safe mode and worked. And seemed to have installed ML successfully, as far as I can tell. Currently my sound isn't working (using SYBA audio dongle), and everything feels a little sluggish..

I had to buy a 2GB RAM only because I have 2x8GB RAM Corsair and iBoot Legacy didn't supported it. At unibeast can I reinstall my 2x8GB back when Installing Mountain Lion? thx!

Yes.

Tried these steps on a MSI 945GCm5FV12 mobo. 4gb ram Nvidia 9500 graphics cards 360gb hitachi hard drive. (this is the hardware I have.) 1 there is no option for AHCI in the bios, and the controller is LCH7 so no AHCI available

Does this mean that I cannot install mac os or is there something else I can do.

Am VERY new to this so please be gentle with me

Yes, without AHCI mode for the SATA controller you cannot install OS X.

I have a question, and it is should I worry about fixing my audio problem caused by 10.7.5 Lion Combo Uodate and then proceed to ML installer, or can I skip the step and then fix it in ML if need be later? My CustomMac was made for SL, and should I bother to get it upgraded? I am still on GA Z68 board and have had issues updating BIOS from F9.
