    You have to Hold Command-Option-R on start up for internet recovery, command-R does not work if your HD is completely empty.

    Make sure you are connected to the internet.
    I tried to find that error code but did not find anything.

    By the way, what did you do to mess up?

    A quick google of 6200f seems to indicate the recovery partition is corrupted and/or missing. See this thread on apple's discussion board.


    From what I can see, you may need to bring it into apple for them to correct this, since the recovery partition is missing or corrupted and the internet recovery process is not working.

    This thread suggests that it may be faulty memory: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1421024

    Try running diagnostics test:

    Finally i can get the ML installed. But..i want to share some thoughts, I download the ML from mac app store from another mac but it keeps me saying showing me the message. Then I tried downloaded "pirated" 10.8.3 disc, burn to USB the same way with the same USB PEN i did previously nothing different, and guess what it WORKS beautifully...I mean seriously..the PIRATED version works while the GENUINE version don't?
    Ill try later redownload from the mac app store the dmg again and try all over again...Ill keep updated!

    PS: I didn't mean and never had the intention to pirated the OS, I'm just seeking for options, because i was so desperate....
