First time using this guide. It seems to have omitted the step of leaving the OSX Installer in the /Applications folder. Just a note.
Why would you move it? That is where Apple downloads it to.

Anyone have the same issue as me?

I can successfully install 10.8.5 and the in asks me to restart my computer which i do.

Then i boot from USB once again and click Mountain Lion (What my SSD is named) and get stuck with this, and it doesn't move.


Also that is when the screen is connected to my graphics card, when i plug it in to onboard graphics this screen progresses with a spirally wheel thing but yeah doesn't move of there eather. anddd when i load form internal graphics i get NVidia ROM patch failed and dcbtable error...

Can someone please help!

Hi Sashak, try putting -v into the boot options to get the verbose output. That way you can see where it gets stuck in the boot process ...

Little known issue that may be affecting a few people: The Mountain Lion installer might be in the wrong /Applications folder. It must be in the root applications folder of the startup drive in order to work with Unibeast.

It sounds crazy I know, but the App Store will download to the Applications folder of the startup drive where Mountain Lion was first purchased. It happened to me, and the security check (?) in Unibeast caused a failure. Once I moved "Install Mountain Lion" from /Previous_Startup_Volume/Applications to /Current_Startup_Volume/Applications, it worked fine.

Still sound crazy? I re-downloaded the 10.8.5 installer through the app store, the installer auto launched. I choose "Options --> Show in Finder" from the installer in the Dock, and it opened an "/Applications" folder where I could see with my own eyes that "Install Mountain Lion" was present. No reason to suspect it was on another partition. After much investigation, I discovered App Store downloaded it to my 10.6.8 partition, not the startup volume I was using.

Hope that's helpful to at least one person. Sorry to those of you who are rolling your eyes at this nonsense. :rolleyes:
