Please give more information!

can you not boot your OSX? is the system (OS X ) installed? or you have to install a new OS X system?

if you have a system installed, then you can use any OSX install DVD and boot with it your System.
If Darwin appears press the F8 key and boot with: -v -f
then upload a photo here.

I'm trying to install a new OS X system.
The problem is after darwin, the apple logo appears for a brief moment and the system restarts itself.

Did you have also set their bios settings set correctly? very important to switch to AHCI !!!! if not then change it.
If do you not have much experience with hackintosh, then look for a tutorials a matching your hardware, use google search.

look here klick me

I was looking for just three minutes no longer, that would be your job!!! Good luck

Tried it but it is still the same. I'm using a processor with HD2500 gpu which is not supported so i can't use the onboard gpu.

HD2500 gpu is actually not fully supported!

Either you buy another GPU which is compatible with OSX or try this here (click me) it is with HD 2500 working on ML for framebuffer only -. No QE / CI

turn off onboard graphics, use your HD6870 - ML supports it fine although you may want to check Part 7 step 7 in my guide:http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/280756-guide-the-all-in-one-guide-to-vanilla-os-x-mountain-lion-chameleon-dsdt-for-beginners/

try booting with -x -f -v if it still resets

If your using verbose boot with -v flag (which you should be!!), the only apple logo you should ever see is in your menu bar.
