Nearly, but not quite...... Install always fails at the last 6 minutes!

Recommended Posts


thanks for all this hard work. I hate Windows and am a MAC OS fan. 

Would someone kindly indulge me and help me with a problem please.
Everything goes well with installation until the last six minutes!!

I formatted the dedicated HDD no problems, choose language, follow the customisation settings, and then installation starts and appears all is going well....... until the last six minutes......every time fails at the last 6 minutes!

I get a MAC screen message saying installation has failed and to restart.
This is a MAC OS message, not PC, so for some reason the MAC OS fails at the last 6 minutes.
I have tried many of the options and nothing gets past the last 6 minutes. Always fails when there is only 6 minutes of the install left to go.

My PC is as follows:


Gigabyte P55A-UD3 (Rev 2.0)
Intel i7

ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6

Dedicated 1TB HDD for the MAC install.

My PC easily restarted back into Win 8.1Pro so my system has not been upset by trying to install Niresh Mavericks.


I have attached screen shot of error message when it is at 6 minutes before completion.

I look forward to any help.

    • Hello everyone,  I'm trying to install High Sierra (with AMD support) on my AMD 4500m Lenovo G505s laptop. When booting from Clover in EFI with i get some really fast screen log then the pc reboots. Now, i know there isn't a way you could help me without some info/logs, unless i'm missing a major malfunction known on these kind of laptops, so, do you know a way i could prevent it from rebooting in order to at least understand what is causing this problem? Do you think even trying to put OSX on this laptop is worth it? Thank you.
    • Hello, i am trying to install High Sierra on my ASUS X75VB but i am getting multiple errors with the ACPI.
      I believe it is CPU related?

      Mainboard: HM76 (X75VB SOCKET 0)
      CPU: Intel Core i5 3320m (Not the original CPU of this laptop!)
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000 & NVIDIA 2GB Geforce 740M
      RAM: DDR3 8GB
      Storage: 120GB SSD (SATA-2)

      I have used the DSDT.aml & SSDT.aml from the following resource:

      My config.plst can be found here:

      Thanks in advance!

    • I have Yosemite Zone working on Virtualbox fine.  After downloading High Sierra Zone there is only a dmg and no ISO.  I tried converting the dmg with hdiutil but it goes to 8GB and I get "no bootable media" in Virtualbox.  Has anyone been able to do this yet?
