Question

Okay so I'm working on my first Hackintosh and I've come to a bit of a problem. I've been following this guide to install Lion on my AMD machine even though im installing Mountain Lion (http://www.macbreaker.com/2013/07/a-look-at-amd-hackintoshing-mac-os-x.html) . When ever I use MyHack it always "fails to retrieve install.mpkg". So instead i made a bootable usb with DiskMakerX and ran U{censored} with it. I copy my AMD kernel to the root of my USB as well as the MB{censored} Mountain Lion folder too. It installs correctly but I cant figure out how to replace the original kernel with my AMD kernel.

?

I've tried what the guide said to do, (rm /Volumes/"Name of hard drive"/mach_kernel), but i get the error saying that its a "read-only" file system. If i boot into single user mode i can sudo remove files from my bootable flash drive but i'm not too sure if i can remove files from other devices since im booting from the USB. I've tried pluggin the HDD in a SATAtoUSB and changing permissions of the files but I still dont have "Permissions" to do so. I cant boot up from the HDD once the install is done, since it has the wrong kernel.

Am i missing something?
