Installed a 256GB an CZ Vertex4 in the dvd bay

Changed bios :
  • boot from external
  • boot from dvd
  • boot from hd

I already had a look at these links

But one talks about Lion and the other one needs setups done from a Mac and bios modification.
I was able to set it up on the second partition from the SSD (primary partition) while booting from usb
installation mentioned hereafter

Installed from
File OS X 10.8.2 Install USB.rar from the piratebay

The Readme of this usb install reads

If you need, use TransMac to delete kexts which are causing problems (System/Library/Extensions)
and delete kernelcache (System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup)

If boot stops right before reaching the installer, or graphics aren't working right, delete video kexts:
Intel = AppleIntelHD* and AppleIntelSNB*
nVidia = GeForce* and NVDA*

When deleting those kexts and kernelcache I can install ML on my vaio, I can boot but no mouse.
This is because I'm using a Logitech Anywhere MX wireless mouse which needs to be installed afterwards.
When plugging a wired serial mouse in the first USB port sometimes I can use the mouse

But I have no wifi, I know the problem with the intel link 100 so i already ordered an Atheros AR9287.
But I'd like to have a ootloader installed and so on, so I'm still looking for someone who has already installed
Mouutain Lion on the same machine or something that's very close to it.
