Hello guys

So my questions may be the questions of many others. I have a fully working 10.7.4, and I have the dog of the new Mountain Lion Golden Master. Here comes the questions:

1-What exactly do I have to do to get Mountain Lion installed and working ?

2-Can I just upgrade my Lion like an original software or do I have to erase my Lion partition ?

I have seen the John Cash's Guide but it seems so hard to do, since I haven't done anything in this guide to have my Lion working.

I have also seen a tutorial that uses myHack to create the USB Stick, and simply installs it deleting my partition.

And the last is the topic around here that says to just upgrade it and overwrite Lion.


Me and many others want Mountain Lion, please help us ;D

Thanks and sorry for my bad English.

Hi

1) Waiting for the official release which is planned between 1 week and 2 (19,99$) or sign up to apple dev center for 99$/year to obtain ML GM

2) Yes, you can !

Now the question is why to would to do an upgrade ? A clean install is much better (on another partition), and all your app can work fine on ML like on Lion. Ditto for the kexts (the most)

Really thanks ;D

Ok I did the myHack method, it installed with no problem, but when I boot I get the boot0 error, then I tried to boot with -x using my usb stick and I got to the desktop, but I have no internet connection (desktop - wired), my graphics isn't working (GeForce 8400GS) and I have to boot using -x to get to the desktop. I already installed Chimera boot loader so I don't need my usb stick anymore, but I still need to boot with -x otherwise I get a "forbidden flag" on the apple during loading.

Is there something I can do to you guys to help me ?

Thanks for the help, I found out the problem myself.

I noticed that he graphics were installed but not working, and after several fresh installs of it I finally found a combination to get it working.

Simply boot up with UseKernelCache=No

Then I added this to my org.chameleon.boot.plist on the kernel flags and it is now working perfectly.
