I'm trying to perform a clean install of Mountain Lion on a MBP. I originally tried the "InstallESD.dmg" USB method. (I know the flash drive was good as I used it to install 10.8 on another laptop.) It gave me the "Can't download the additional components needed to install Mac OS X" error.

I then followed this

and it retuned this log message. Since I'm not learned enough to understand any of this I'm hoping someone out there is.

Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately that wasn't the lucky number in this case.
