    Ok, Try Looking At This And Tell Me If This Helps. See If You Installed Wrong If This Does Not Work Make A Disk And Install It On Virtual Box From A Clean PC If That Works Back Up Your Data And Erase Your Hard Drive By


    1. Boot Install
    2. Click On Utillitys
    3. Click Disk Utillity
    4. Click On Your HD
    5. Click Format
    6. If Asked Disk Format Do Mac OS X Jornaled
    7. Then Format And Reboot
    8. Then Boot Computer No Disk
    9. If This Pic Shows You Can Install

    Are you Kidding? Whats a "Virtual Box From A Clean PC" If I had have known upgrading to mountain lion was going to be this difficult there is no way I would have done. It is not enough that 3 of my email accounts cant send mail since I upgraded snow leopard prior to trying to install mountain lion. I can say I am totally disillusioned with MAC. We have 2 laptops a desk top an Ipad and 2 Iphones and I think we will be going back to PC's and android phones.

    When I install OS X Mountain Lion this is the error I get: This copy of the Install OS X Mountain Lion application can't be verified. It may have been corrupted or tampered with during downloading. - Delete this copy of the application, and go to the Purchases page of the Mac App Store to download a new copy.

    This is a free upgrade with my purchase of the new rMBP.


    I deleted it completely, even from the Trash. I also cleaned my Mac.

    When I try to download it from the app store the error shows: The application could not be downloaded. - The installation could not be started. But it's not in the trash anymore. It's totally gone... What else could be the problem?


    What should I do? Please help... Thanks.
