It is not possible to install OS X Mountain Lion 10.8 on an Asus Eee PC 1005HA

The reason why it is not possible to install OS X Mountain Lion 10.8 on an Asus EeePC 1005HA is because it uses the Intel Atom N270 processor that is 32bit only while OS X Mountain Lion  is a full 64 bit operating system only.

In fact it’s possible to find an ‘hackintosh’ version of the OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.1 kernel for Atom support on the OSx86.net project:

but that would be compatible only with the 64bit versions of the Atom processors:

Instead, you can follow these instructions to Install Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.7 on the Asus Eee PC 1005HA.
