Hey ananthkishan,

 

AMD isn't the most supported for Macs, which run on Intel processors. The graphics almost entirely don't work. I do know that it CAN run, just not well.  

 

Check this link out, ignore the Biostar board. Just follow the steps he says :)

With the AMD kernel, I've had bad results with even AMD graphics (no QE/CI).  A very bad experience in OS X.  Nvidia doesn't work at all.

With Mlion, the kernel creates artifacts with AMD ATI 4/5/6
your 4250 is not compatible in osx
 
You have my same chipset for now test lion 10.7.3 / 5
