That's a kernel panic, re-installing with a different kernel would be my best guess.

 

And, I successfully installed Mavericks on my Dell optiplex 330, the USB version worked for me. What trouble did you have with it?

 

(EDIT):

Although, when I look at it, it looks like your configuration is incorrect. did you take the steps to configure your bios/bootloader?

What is your laptop make and model, there is a chance that ACHI is all you will need. Now, which distro did you try: if you tried one that is incompatible with your laptop, we may be able to point you in the right direction.

Your processor meets the minimum (dang near bottom line) requirements for this distro, however, Niresh's ML is not as good as his Mavericks. If you are stuck on Mountain Lion, I would go with Iatkos ML2. That being said, you could also try (THIS LINK). The USB version of Mavericks is actually a more stable distro. If you need any more help, i'll make a tutorial for you.

If I make a tutorial, can I link it from YouTube to this post?

Did you use the ISO version or the USB version, there is a difference.

@navee28 If you wrote the ISO version onto a USB, it would not boot.
