I ran into a similar problem. Turns out my HD had a problem I did not know about.
I had to re-partition and format my HD before ML would install. And that ***** since I had to re-install Lion from download just to start the download of ML and start that install!
But at least if follow the steps it WORKS!

Hey guys thanks for your help. i had to restore my macintosh HD back to default, re install Snow Leopard through my recovery USB which came with my 2010 Macbook Air and then install Mountain lion, this worked for me. MAKE SURE YOU BACK UP YOUR COMPUTER BEFORE RESTORING, YOU WILL LOSE EVERYTHING!!

Glad to hear it!
I ran into another problem: The USB cable I was using for my external backup disk was not reliable. I kept getting "disk ejects" at various points during migration.
I bought a new "2.0 certified" cable and it worked fine. The first two attempts resulted in re-installs.
I'm happy to report that after the 3rd re-install of ML everything appears to be OK.
I disabled TM and keeping my last b/u offline for a few more days to be safe....MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion
