    I tried to install osx 10.8 but I keep getting this error ...


    I erased my drive and started fresh .. reset pram and nothing has worked yet ...

    It happens right after the "to download and restore OS X, your computers eligibility will be verified with Apple

    I made sure I was connected to the internet and I verified the drive too, albeit wirelessly.

    Should I try a new hard drive or is it something with the connection or verifying server?

    You could use a 8gb usb stick and the Lion Disk Maker 2.0.1 which will create an install disk from the Mountain Lion installer app. This was the only way I could get it to install on my Mac Pro, Apple's servers do not seem to be up to the job of completing a net install in my experience with them.
