"Install Failed" (AMD FX-6300)
1 1

Question

Hey Everyone! I downloaded the 10.9 .dmg file from here and made a bootable USB with no issues. My motherboard has been set to AHCI and I am able to boot into the installer using "amdfx -v". Once at the installed I formatted my 1tb drive as 1 partition with Mac OS X Extended Journaled and unchecked the graphicsenabler=yes option. The install gets to about 5 min remaining and just fails...

 

Specs:

AMD FX-6300 3.5ghz

8GB 1600mhz Ram

1TB Western Digital HD

512mb Nvidia Geforce 9800GTX+

MSI 970A-G46

I run an FX-6100 and    "amdfx -v" worked for me, if not try "amdfx -x -v"    OR    "amdfx -x -v GraphicsEnabler=No"   OR      "amdfx -x -v GraphicsEnabler=yes"

@David McDonough, try to follow this tutorial. Do exactly what he did in the tutorial. You'll have your installation right in your PC. :)

In which case, try remounting the DMG to the USB/ Re burning the disk. If that fails, try re-downloading. If the installer is corrupt, that is solved, if not, we can move on to hardware issues. :)
