OS X 10.8.5 installer unable to detect HDD of Acer Aspire 5920

Question

I've created USB stick installer with OS X 10.8.5 using myHack 3.1.2 (the newest myHack 3.2 BETA 8 don't boot completely for me). After I've replaced IOPCIFamily.kext by patched for 10.8.1 to fix PCI configuration begin hanging. Also I have replaced AppleACPIPlatform.kext by original version from 10.8.1 because IOPCIFamily.kext depends on it and cannot find some functions in new one. These steps was enough for me to boot 10.8.3 installer and successfully install OS X. So I've made the same steps to install 10.8.5. Installer has booted graphics but Disk Utility cannot find internal HDD. USB stick and DVD-ROM was detected correctly. Should I patch some other kexts or do something yet?

?

PS: I have AHCI mode in BIOS and old installed 10.8.3 works fine.
