Re: Unable to upgrade Snow leopard to Mountain Lion

I was having exactly the same problem. My system was Snow Leopard and i was not able to get OS X ML. Finally after a lot work around, i found that in order to get to Mountain Lion my system must first have OS X Lion. I did the same and than upgraded to Mountain Lion. It worked for me, and will suggest you to go for the same.

Which version of snow Leopard you are using? You need latest version of Snow Leopard(10.6.8), if you don't have , upgrade it to install Mountain Lion. Mountain Lion can be installed on latest version of snow Leopard or Lion.
And yes one more thing, check the hardware/system requirment to install Mountain Lion.

Thats really helpful info. My system meets all the requirements for Mountain Lion, except this. I am running with 10.6.3 and this is the reason why am not able to get Mountain Lion. Well, i'll do it right now but can you guys tell me will it cost me anything or will i get it for free ? because obviously i have to pay for getting Mountain Lion and for this am going to upgrade my snow leopard which will be for just few hours until i update to mountain lion.

Re: Unable to upgrade Snow leopard to Mountain Lion

As far as i know, i thin yes you will need to buy it that may cost you about $30. But before that, as it will be useless to spend $30 for just few hours or for upgrading to Mountain Lion, i'll suggest you to call and aks apple guys for some suggestion or help. Who know if they understand your problem and wave off your cost for upgrading to 10.6.8. if you want, you can call up them on 1-800-692-7753 or 1-800-676-2775.

Yes, you will have to pay for it because it is the requirement of installation of Mountain Lion. Yes, you can ask Apple guys or visit site for more information.
