    however at step 4 i have to press f5 and load the mountain lion iso, it works but after pressing enter I get this screen:

    I hope its not an issue with your motherboard. OSX only runs on certain motherboards, hopefully a virtual copy skirts around that issue though.

    @ BortzANATOR I certainly hope that isn't the problem

    Think I remember now. You need to use the arrow keys to select the 'OSX Install DVD'. If you just select enter, you'll get that error that we both got. ;)

    Yeah OSX is VERY picky in what hardware it'll run on. It could be that's the problem but I never tried installing OSX so I don't really know. The error seems to say the disc has no drivers for your ACPI... Whatever that means.

    @quietlyawesome94 I tried to use the keys but after I switched hackboot 1 with the mountain lion iso I can only choose from a couple of options by using the down key?

    This is from your same link, 'Step 5:

    When I select hackboot2 iso, refresh the screen, and select the HD (Not the hackboot icon) I get a black screen with white text. Everything appears to load properly and it stops at System uptime in nanoseconds:

    Has anyone passed this?'

    Someone answers with, 'When you first start-up using hackboot2.iso use the arrow keys to select your hard-drive and type '-f' then press enter. Worked for me :)'
