Model A1181: 1.83, 2, 2.1, 2.13, 2.16, 2.2, or 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo processor
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 EveryMac - Lookup plugging in the last three digits of your system.
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
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.
