hey guys was wondering if anyone has any ideas i have a system which runs 10.6.8 perfectly, i have since purchased a copy of 10.8 and created a myhack usb installer which installs great except, on reboot i get a boot error. i can bypass this by booting from the usb installer and then selecting the mountain lion drive, here in lies my next problem it doesnt boot... all i get is the apple logo with the pin wheel which constantly spins and goes no further. If i restart and do the same procedure with -x it starts and i can complete the new user/computer setup but on restart i and reboot i get the same apple logo and pin wheel spinning, i have started the machine with -v and a screen shot of the machine is below if anyone has any ideas it would be greatly apreciated, specs are below.

thanks for the speedy reply scellow, how do you recommend i install it with the system the way it is at the moment should i boot my sl drive and then copy the kext into the extensions folder on the ml drive and the repair disk permissions?

hey artur i found that the update from 10.6 to 10.6.8 solved the graphics issue for me but unfortunately i cant get the os to boot correctly to do the update in 10.8

found a 8300 nvidia do you think that would be ok?

hi



7600GT => only compatible 32bit, 10.8 only 64bit system



sorry, it will not work



if you want to buy another graphic card, go see on OSx86 Wiki for more info about the compatibilities
