    I own an early 2008 white MacBook (4,1). System Information seems to show the MacBook runs 64-bit extensions, however, the graphics card is a GMA x3100.

    I tried following the same guide as DP1 to workaround the restrictions Apple has on compatibility for GM. When I try to load from the USB with the ML installer, I get a no entry sign. Does anyone else have this problem (or know another workaround?) :confused:

    This machine runs Lion fine... don't really get why it's no longer supported by Apple.

    Don't you have to side-load lion drivers?

    Because Lion and ML have different system reqs. Just like Lion and SL, and SL and Leopard, and Leopard and Tiger...

    Yeah, I've heard that you do. I haven't been able to get to that step yet, though.

    I understand this, but those who seemed to get DP1 installed said it seemed to run smoothly (after all necessary drivers and extensions were installed, anyways).
