I am attempting to install Mac OSX Mountain Lion on my Dell XPS L701X using the guide here:http://www.insanelym...-for-beginners/ and a retail image of Mountain Lion from the Mac App Store mounted on a USB drive.
However, I am unable to boot the OS X installer. Using the -v boot flag, the boot hangs at this screen:

If I boot into safe mode with the -x boot flag, I am able to reach this screen:

I have tried various other boot flags, such as GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No and PCIRootUID=0/1, with no success.
From my attempts to search the issue, it seems to be an issue with my graphics.
My system specs:
CPU: Intel Core i5 460M 2.53GHz
Motherboard: Dell XPS L701X
GPU: Intel HD Graphics/ nVidia GeForce GT 435M (with nVidia Optimus)
Have updated BIOS to latest version from Dell (A10) and looked for any graphics-related options but have been unable to find any.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
