Lets first see some of the application related issues which user can face while upgrading to Mac OS 10.8. If user is looking for upgrading the OS from Lion or Snow Leopard then it will be a easy process. But upgrading OS from Leopard to directly Mountain Lion is not possible. Leopard doesn’t have Apple Center app in it which comes from Snow Leopard version. So user will have to first install Snow Leopard then try to upgrade it to 10.8 Mountain Lion. User also comes across speed issues, like the process gets hangs in between. They also face “Beach Ball of Death” i.e. white screen error while loading OS X. The issues also carries the slow working or freezing of Safari browser. Apart from these problem with mail services of Outlook and Yahoo in Mac after upgradation and AirPlay Mirroring are also reported.

Mac Mountain Lion Upgrade issue includes problems related to Mac OS which points towards hard drive which is absolutely fine. One possible way of fixing the problem is by restting the PRAM. As the problem leads to data loss because OS doesn’t loads so its resolution is very much necessary. PRAM can be reset in Mac by restarting the system and holding ‘cmd + option + p + r‘. It should beep twice than its normal one beep. From here on user can use Time Machine for backup of data. If no data backup has been made then use mac data recovery software to get all the lost data back.
