If you have access to a mac then try creating a usb installer tool using apps like myhack and do an install....from your specs you should have almost everything workng except for your wifi if the system has a centrino or AR9485

Thanks mate, 

 

I got mountain lion installed however I can only boot up with GraphicsEnabler=No .  If I leave this flag off, i get the white apple screen with the spinning wheel and then the screen goes completely black.  

 

I have tried many methods to get this working including injection etc to no avail.  Has anyone managed to get this working at all?
