unable to mount the last partition drive in yosemite 10.10.1 dmg
1 1

Question

I am unable to install Yosemite 10.10.1.dmg in intel core i3 Haswell ULT laptop having socket 1168 BGA. I made five partitions with Master Boot Record / Guid Partition Table but the last partition i.e., disk2s6 could not be mounted with name ‘Texts’ after erase. That is why could not install  essential.pkg of Yosemite zone.dmg and if it at all gets installed I am getting boot0ss error after installation and unable to view any bootloader icon to boot osx from hard drive.

Please give your valuable opinion why the last partition drive ( whether disk2s6 or s5) could not be mounted with master boot record partition table and why essential.pkg gets stuck at some point of the installation process.

Im really confused why it is not allowing to mount the partition but the Essential pkg may fail due to permission problems as it is an MBR Partition table

have you tried to mount it with Terminal?

i want to mount all of my  5 partitions in different file formats i.e. ExFat, MS Dos, Mac OS (Journaled) in MBR or GUID Partition table , but I cannot do so. The last partition also fails to mount i.e disk2s6.

So, I am unable to install Yosemite 10.10.1 dmg restored with USB in my Acer E5-571 33Ys laptop. The hardware specs of my laptop are as under.

CPU:                              Intel Core i3-4030U Cpu @ 1.90 GHz.

Chipset:                        Intel Haswell ULT, Socket 1168 BGA

Motherboard:                EA50_HB

Graphics:                      Intel HD 4400 (Microsoft Basic Display Adapter)

Ethernet:                      Gigabit Ethernet

Wireless LAN:                IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Wlan:                             i) BT Atheros WB335

                                      ii) BT4.0 BCM43142

                                      iii) BT 4.0Atheros WB222

                                      iv) Qualcom Atheros AR9287 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI- Express)

Audio Card:                    Realtek ALC283

 

When I am making 4 or 5 partitions with Master Boot Record with different formats i.e. ExFat, MS Dos, Mac OS Journaled, I find the last partition is not mounting. The message is “Could not mount disk2s5 /disk2s6 with name Texts after erase”. As a result, essential.pkg could not be extracted and the installation fails in the 14th minutes remaining  time period (i.e. before middle). If by luck the installation completes, I cannot see any bootloader icon to boot from the hard drive.

Can you find a way out to make the installation successful?  Also let me know how to install wify software for my above wify card in windows.
