I am trying to install ML on sony vaio cw series. I begin the installation and get the apple logo show up, after about a minute or so I get black screen and nothing happens again. I have tried several boot options live -x GraphicsEnabler=0, PCIRootUID=1 etc. to remedy the installation but without success.

One problem is that I am allowed to change any settings in the BIOS except for the boot priority option.
Can somebody help me get around this.

Thanks in advance

Thanks once again for the hep. Tried it but with no luck again. My BIOS has been severely restricted. It doesn't allow me to change anything except the boot priority. Would that not be the issue?
