While Apple's TN imply this model won't run Lion or Mountain Lion there is in fact two versions of this model group the older '''Core Duo''' and the newer '''Core 2 Duo'''. Verify your model going to [http://www.everymac.com/ultimate-mac-lookup/|EveryMac - Lookup] plugging in the last three digits of your system.
 
* The '''Core Duo''' group can only run up to Snow Leopard:
 
''This system can run the last version of Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard". However, it cannot boot in 64-bit mode nor does it support "OpenCL".'' The older Core Duo's CPU is not 64-bit clean which is why they can't run Lion or Mountain Lion
 
* The '''Core 2 Duo''' models can in fact run Lion (10.7.x) sorry to say it can't run Mountain Lion.
 
''This system can run the last version of OS X 10.7 "Lion" if upgraded to at least 2 GB of RAM. However, although it has a 64-bit processor, it has a 32-bit EFI and is not capable of booting into 64-bit mode. It does not support "OpenCL" either.''
 
So you can run a newer OS just not the latest depending on what you currently have.
 
Apple removed all of the 32-bit OS code in Mountain Lion which is why you can't run it.
