Alright so really fixed it this time last night after 5 long days of pulling my hair out. Getting rusty after all of these years lol, this was one of the things that you'll never find a fix online for. It may just be the lion installer i downloaded but anywho it wasn't completing the handshake at the end of the installation of anything pertaining to a boot volume and leaving me with a corrupted partition. After repairing the source installation created partition it updated the boot support and i was able to get installed. Certain i'll have the rest up and running but i went to bed happy I highly recommend you guys pick up SSD drives for ML, it is quite amazing

EVGA x58
6GB DDR3 1600MHz

i7 920 @ 3.2GHz Corsair H60

SSDs are great no matter what OS you use =). Don't forget to pick up TrimEnabler for your SSD as Lion and ML wont enable it for aftermarket drives.

I had a similar booting problem, when I installed from a usb drive to another usb drive. When the computer was booting up it would get stuck/freeze indefinetly whenever I hooked in the drive which it was installed to, even if I plugged in the drive while moving through the BIOS settings it would freeze my computer. However when I hooked the drive up directly with SATA it had no problem... I have a feeling the BIOS version I am on just shits itself with certain boot sectors...

anybody update directly from 10.7 to 10.8 succesfully? Getting a clean install is too much of a hassle because i have too many files to transfer.


Code:
BIOS:E758_SZ2Z Motherboard:EVGA x58 132-BL-E758-A1 CPU:Intel Core i7 920 @ 4.0 GHz OS:Snow Leopard 10J567:x64 Vanilla Memory:24 GB G.skill DDR3 1333 MHz HDD:10 x 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black Graphics Card:EVGA Geforce GTX480 1536 mb Monitor:Dell Ultrasharp 2408WFP Rev. A02 Audio: Onboard
