I've put up a super easy-to-follow installation guide for installing Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6 and upgrading to OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2 on an Ivy Bridge CustoMac.

This video is intended as a pre and a post UniBeast installation guide as I left out the UniBeast creation part.

Check out the official tonymacx86 UniBeast creation guide here:


The installation and optimization tools used in the guide are:

  • iBoot for Ivy Bridge
  • Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6 Install Disc
  • UniBeast
  • MultiBeast for Mountain Lion

Thanks and enjoy!

for open unidentified software no need to go System Preferences/Security & Privacy/*Anywhere, just hold Command or Option key, right click(mouse) in the software and click open.

I think everybody wanted a guide and video about how to install fresh ML without any older versions, it's much better. Because this method is the same as installing Windows 8 after installing Windows XP.

Well, I state in the video that you have two choices: do an upgrade by installing over Snow Leopard or do a fresh install, which I briefly explain how to do. The main purpose of the guide is to show someone that has built an Ivy Bridge CustoMac (without prior access to the Mac App Store) how to install Snow Leopard and update to Mountain Lion.
