Can't even start installation
3 3

Question

Hey everybody.

I tried to install ML today on my HP 15 e036sf laptop that has no AHCI support whatsoever in dual boot with Windows 7.

I have Windows 7 working nicely.

 

So i tried starting the OS X Installation via the CD but it just restarts. No installation.

 

Any ideas?

@OhMyMac Mountain lion is DvD

use the boot flag hp -v to boot 
make sure you have enabled virtualization in BIOS

Hey @ thanks for the answer.

 

So I did your command (hp -v), it loaded some non-default kernel without Kernel Cache and theeen...

 

Black screen.

 

So i don't know if it's loading something but there is no CD activity or HD activity.

@ It loads some commands and then simply restarts. I'm starting to think that ML hates me.

In the bios, I have AMD Virtualization enabled, Legacy boot enabled and Secure boot disabled.

Just tought of that, does it have something to do with the fact that my BIOS does not support AHCI?

I've read somewhere that ML supports non-ahci drives.

 

Also, noticed that it show boot0: done before loading Windows.
