Prepare the USB again and delete all the kexts of Intel and Nvidia graphics from system>library>extensions.
Boot with -v GraphicsEnabler=No.

It still just stops at starting darwin x86_64.
Thanks.

I even tried downloading 10.8.2 and retrying it.

Are you running the installer from a USB thumb drive, or a internal HD partition?

I have tried it from both a partition on my SSD and a partition on my USB drive. I don't have a big enough flash drive.
Thanks.

In bios, change PCI event timer from 32 to 64, disable USB3.0, swap org.chameleon.boot.plist for this one, add patched DSDT if possible, until then be sure to use NullCPUPowerManagement.kext

You are correct that other people have had same issue without being able to say "here is the fix for reboot after Darwin" or whatever, but they almost all got it installed eventually by remaking USB, sometimes 3 or 4 times, resetting bios and then reconfiguring it from scratch, unplugging any and all peripheral devices and USB stuff, extra hard drives, etc. So making this work with what you got, vs buying known compatible hardware in advance, may take some effort and patience, but you can't keep bumping your own thread.

I know you are, and I want you to get your system working too, that's why I didn't say anything earlier. Just consider it a friendly reminder is all. Good luck.

I tried using the "myhack" thing to create an installer but it had the same problem but when I booted with -v -x -f -s GraphicsEnabler=No it went really far but when it got to the desktop I saw it was just the clone of my Lion drive.

Going back on one of your older screen shots posted, something struck me a little odd, maybe may not be a big deal depending on how you trying to do this. Use your installer to boot from bios, but in Chameleon menu choose to boot into your Lion install instead while using -x -v. See what drive and partition it shows while it boots. Then do the same using same boot drive from bios but choose ML installer the next time. Make sure they are different based on where your partitions are. A friend of mine had cloned his laptop drive and when you would pick the clone to boot instead, it would look like it was doing so, but halfway through the boot process, when it's "getting root device" it would switch over and finish booting the orig install. Only way to tell was in verbose you could see where it said "got root device" and the device name had a Toshiba HD model name in it, the clone was on a WD hooked up via USB. Then at desktop you can tell by what drive is mounted as root of course. Even specifying the boot UUID in clones org.chameleon.boot.plist didn't help. Only way to make it boot was to remove the orig HD first. Erased, reformatted and re-did the clone and it was fine with both drives hooked up. Just an example that weird things can happen when things are a little dirty. By all means you can try disconnecting other drives during boot to see if it makes any difference. Can also remove all nVidia, ATI and Intel graphics kexts. Or do a zero erase on your usb and then reformat as mbr, recreate installer on it, etc. Redownload Mountain Lion incase it's a bad copy. No shortage of things to try, they're just not the first things I would try :)

Thanks. I just tried everything you said but i might of found something when booting with -v. Right after starting Drawin x86_64 it says "boot args: boot-uuid=8481159E-1DEE" ect. then it reboots. In your reply you were talking about specifying the boot UUID, do you think this has anything to do with that? Posted Image

to find out, boot Lion and go to disk utility, high-light Lion partition and choose get info, it will show UUID in info pane, as well as if volume is bootable and if it contains valid osx install, ownership enabled, etc. do same for ML installer and make note of any differences. To then specify a particular UUID as the boot device, chameleon boot flag would be
rd=uuid boot-uuid="enter the uuid here without quotes"
