    I'm installing ML on a 2007 mac mini core2duo 2.0ghz, upgraded to 4gb RAM

    I made a Mountain Lion USB Stick using MPF 1.0.1, it would not past the initial apple logo, never get to recovery.

    I made with the same "Install Mountain" the installation towards a partition on the HDD and it boots and installs, in fact, i'm writing this from the ML Install.

    Is there a way to be able to boot with the USB stick, I have an SSD i want to install but dont want to go though the hassle of installing 10.7, then the update 10.7.5 to be able to use MPF

    I know 2.0 solved the Boot from USB issue, but I used 1.0.1 because:
    • 2.0.1 returned ERROR CODE 1
    • 2.0 complained about not being able to connect to
    Please let me know what to modify in the stick so it can boot the recovery
