    Anybody else having to reset their machine in order to get their User logon options to appear ? At the moment I'm getting nothing more than the grey chequered wallpaper and a movable mouse pointer. :-(

    The only way to get around the problem appears to be force-resetting the machine (27" iMac late 2009) by holding the power button which seems to allow the machine to correctly boot on the second try. :-/

    It seems you have installed OS X Mountain Linen, not Mountain Lion.

    There's a joke here somewhere about Apple's over zealous use of that linen texture :rolleyes:
    "In 10.4, it was just the reverse-side background of the weather widget, but now, in 10.8, Linen IS the OS. Simple."

    My only advice would be to back up your stuff and do a clean install.
