    Angry Installation Failed 10.8.2

    I am trying to dual boot my computer for mac os x and windows 7, but as I finally got the mac os x installer to boot and load up, it decides to fail half way through the installation. I have very little knowledge about this stuff so some people may find having to bear with some stupidness.

    My computer: HP Pavilion dv6, 4gb ram, i3 core.

    So... I am using clover as the bootloader. I deleted the Intel video kernel extensions and used "-v and cpus=1" boot up flags. I am able to format my hard drive at the installation screen and everything seems functional. I was so happy, until the installation failed.

    I tried installing a total of 4 times. The first time, it failed with 9 minutes remaining, and 15 min remaining, 13 min remaining and 12 minutes remaining.

    Any ideas? Please?
