    Where did you obtain "Mountainlion.dmg?" There are no versions of OS X distributed in a .dmg format since 10.7 Lion.

    I would recommend to get a proper download from the App Store to have a successful installation. It should automate everything for you.

    Can you do an Internet recovery by turning on the power and holding Command+Option+R and allow it to run Internet Recovery?
