  5. But I am trying to install Mountain Lion. Is the instruction same for both of them, Mountain Lion and Mavericks ? And I'd like to tell you something more about my problem. Just now I tried booting with USB and it reached this stage and keeps on showing it. (Picture attached below) Any ideas ? o.O Thanks
  6. Thank you for the reply. I tried booting it using EasyBCD as guided by "niresh" and also by a PenDrive by inserting it in USB 2 and 3 ports but none seem to be working. I think I am doing something wrong in the BIOS setting. Can you please tell me the correct BIOS configs, if you know ? Thanks again.
