    I have tried installing it about 5 times now. I also made a bootable usb, and it still isnt working. This keeps popping up:
    I have tried deleting it and reinstalling it 3 times. Any help would be appreciated.

    Repair permissions on your Mac and try again? Are you sure it re-downloaded? Did you delete the installer and empty the trash before redownloading?

    Not sure if this matters but is your version of Lion pirated or real?


    All the people having a problem with upgrading to ML might be having the same problem with OTA updates for iOS on jailbroken phones. If you have a pirated version then it might not be working properly. I could be wrong though.

    Is Apple now not allowing downloaded OS X to be installed? That's a first.

    The servers are under HEAVY load right now. I'd just try again tomorrow.

    He asked if my version of lion was downloaded. Not Mountain Lion. I bought Mountain Lion.

    Well, technically, you bought an update to a supposedly legal OS you own--since you don't legally own it, maybe Apple just considers it a downpayment :D
