@ antaeus If you really need to test it then I suggest you get an actual Mac that won't have a problem booting and installing ML. There isn't an actual ETA on when the release of chameleon that will boot ML will be dropped.

I was working on it with my friends. I haven't tested it myself (I don't have ML), but I found a solution to run installation and it was working on my friend's PCs.

 

You need to edit dmg like it's lion.

Than you have to edit file: /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist

And replace 10.8 with 10.7.

Use modified chameleon.

Installation should run fine.

There are not much changes, but Chameleon tries to run ML like it's Snow Leopard instead of Lion.

 

It should be easy to patch in chameleon.

 

Edit:

Use Modified Chameleon in later posts. Plist Edition is no longer needed.

You patch these files in the installer?

 

Or on hard drive?
