Made an Install DVD and booted with it. Got through the language choice and then chose reinstall OS X. The screen that came up had the same message as in the first post.
According to everything I can find, this Macbook Pro IS compatible with Mountain Lion but it won't install.
Macbbok Pro 3,1
2.4 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo
Mac OS X 10.6.8 (with latest updates)
6 GB Ram
I'd really like to get this installed.
