Almost there, still have not got to the install screen. I was getting errors(kernel panics?), which possibly was from my external drive. Unplugged everything and rebooted according to instructions (with a SATA DVD drive and blank HDD, keyboard, mouse). Now I'm Getting a disc read error (no kernel panics,VGA may be working), so looks like i still have something plugged in the wrong spot maybe, the upside is I am a little closer.

I was told that about my graphics card as well, then somebody said I may have difficulties so I have ruled it out. I need the card as I am stuck with VGA as I have about 10 different monitors at my disposal yet none have DVI.

I need to Install Snow leopard first using ivybridge iBoot, I believe. I only have the install DVD for Snow Leopard from the Apple store, and I don't have Mountain lion yet as I only have a 32 bit Dell Mini 10, and no way to purchase . Been following the instructions and asking for help when needed.

Thanks Hacman :headbang:,

Now to figure out what to install/settings to use from Multibeast and backup before I apply the 10.8.2 update. Gonna trawl the forums until I can figure it out nefore I restart. Will look into getting HDMI audio(dont care about quality) working as well but not essential just convenient.
