Hi, I have a Dell 1545 currently with Mountain Lion installed.
I can get to the Mavericks install screen but can't see any HardDrives to install
$20 for anyone who can solve this for me email info@LucidPortrayal.com
Here is how I got to where I am
Processor 2.19 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory 4GB 797 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
Graphics GMAX3100 64 MB of Shared System M
Serial Number G88014V4XYK
First Very Importantly Change Bios HD to AHCI
I used IAtkos S3 v2 to install snow leapard easily
"The thing that got it booted for me was disabling RTC."
Here are the selections that should be chosen from the custom installation "don't just press install"
Chameleon v2 RC4,
broadcom for wireless,
But like u said you have gotten Snow Leopard already here is how i got ML installed
again using IAtkosML I created a bootable USB
Mountain Lion installation disk
defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
You can see from this command that we are making a change to the default behavior of Finder, to show all files, and setting it to true. Next we need to restart Finder, to do this type killall Finder and hit return.

load ML2 installer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZGbc-rk7HQ
Remove UseKernelCache=Yes flag
Fix wireless adapter kext
Once I fixed the wireless by injecting the kext I downloaded the vanilla version of Mavericks for free
I have two hd that i swap out to get back to windows 7 then did a bios update (not sure if this is necessary)
I created an extra folder using various sources then injected it into myhack

Here is the Altered MyHack that I used to create the Mavericks USB http://www.fileswap.com/dl/QjdcxHsjqy/
load with -v -f
This will load the installer but I cant see the HardDrives.
I've tried countless boot flags and countless injected kext
Some other things that I tried after finding out the HD was not visible even with The Bios Change to AHCI
other kext frm s/l/e
rename iopcifamily2.kext to iopcifamily.kext and replace in system/library/extension
rename LegacyAppleAHCIPort.kext to AppleAHCIPort.kext replace in s/l/e still no hard drive but still boots
load with -v -f
