SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP ME OUT! I have been trying to install Mountain Lion on my Samsung Laptop and i have run into many dead ends. Either i get still waiting for root device or there is a prohibited circle sign with the apple logo when i try to boot into the installer. I havent even installed Mountain Lion yet. It only went to the installer once with no mouse and i accidentally shut down and I cant get it back. I do have laptop support on the boot disk. Anyhelp please!! I will give more information ASAP. Thanks in advance!:beachball:
