I am currently trying to install Mountain Lion and everything was going fine until it was time to reboot.

First I tried rebooting then it said i needed to close applications so I clicked the button to close applications and it hung for a few minutes then the installer crashed so I ran the installer again as it didnt restart on its own after clicking reopen application.
The installer immediately gave me the restart button as im assuming the file caching process was completed. Now, whenever I click the restart button it just restarts my macbook and the installer never kicks in. I've done this around 4-5 times now exact same thing each time.

I'm not sure if there are corrupt files in the installer cache or its sending the wrong reboot message but i havent been able to install it one way or another. any ideas?

Edit:

did a disk repair and permissions repair and turned off file vault still have same issues

the installer log after installation failed

Try checking your Console for any relevant log messages. Also, you might have a look in the Startup Disk preference pane and switch that setting around before trying the installer again. –  jtbandes Jul 27 '12 at 3:17
    
the installer doesn't start after reboot so i dont get the installer console and when i try to load the installer from a usb disk it just says installation failed try reinstalling as soon as it loads and i checked the startup disk it gives me windows and mac os options and mac osx is selected –  Chris McGrath Jul 28 '12 at 8:43
    
That last bit of information probably need to be added to your question. Boot camp is involved and that changes the question. –  ephsmith Jul 28 '12 at 12:41
    
sorry for that i didnt realize th bootcamp was that big of an issue with installs as i have never had issues with this in the past ill make sure i mention that in the future –  Chris McGrath Jul 29 '12 at 3:23

i ended up figuring it out the restart issue still unresolved but doesn't really matter at this point as the second part i resolved on my own by doing a PRAM/NVRAM reset (command-option-p-r) at startup after this it installed fine I wish I had thought of that before wiping my MacOS partition
