Is the copy circulating in the torrent damaged?

Question

ppbo2014    0

Hi, I've downloaded the Mavericks installer for USB through the torrent provided in this website. When I try to burn it to a usb, the process stops at 71%. I've tried with Win32DiskImager as well as TransMac with the same result.

 

When I try to see the file contents with PowerISO, which is able to manage dmg images in Windows, it says the partition type is unknown (I can see other dmg files without any problem). Apparently the DMG file is damaged.

 

I've downloaded the torrent several times with different torrent clients, with the same result every single time.

 

I'm currently stuck with this. I do not know what to do further. Does anyone else have the same problem? Please help!

 

PS: my system is windows 8.1

Hi all,

 

I got it! I can say now the dmg file is not damaged.

 

Finally I found out the problem's origin, thanks to DMG Extractor, a tool that tells why the dmg cannot be browsed in Windows. All the other tools I had tried before simply showed messages such as "unknown type" or "the file may be corrupted". DMG Extractor identifies the problem in the MBR file, which seems to be the cause for these other tools not to load the image. DMG Extractor cannot either, but at least it explains why. BTW, the dmg file can be browsed with HFSExplorer, for which the MBR file is not a problem.

 

I don't know why copying the dmg image failed. I've been using that usb for years and it can be formatted and used without a single problem, but the dmg copy always fails in the same point (71%) with that usb pendrive. I must assume there must be some fault in the usb memory preventing the copy process finishing successfully. I used a new usb to burn the dmg image and it worked fine.

 

So let's go now to next step, installing OS X  :nod: .

Thank you for your quick reply, Niresh.

 

I tried your new link but the result was exactly the same, even with usbit. Now I'm trying from a Linux laptop, using Transmission as torrent client. This client allows me to monitor the statistics of the download. Right now these are (actually bad):

 

- Downloaded: 880 MB

- Discarded (corrupted): 1.07 GB

 

I still think there is something wrong with this torrent. Your tracker keeps all the time telling "Tracker gave HTTP response code 500 (Internal Server Error)", and most of the download (+90%) comes from the second seed (the first one seems to be inactive). Could you please check the health of the torrent seed?

 

A final question: the ISO version seems to be OK. Can it be used, on a DL DVD, instead of the USB version, to install OS X on an HP laptop? Is there any reason to better use a USB?

 

Thanks

Confirmed that I used the DMG torrent posted, and used Win32DiskImager from Windows 8, booting/installed with no issues. USB is MUCH, MUCH faster that using a DLDVD. If you do enough toying and need to reinstall during setting up your hackintosh, you will absolutely want to have the USB installer handy.

Thanks for your reply, ogrosticlops.

 

I understand the advantage of using USB instead of DLDVD, but trying to get a working copy is becoming a hard time. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but I've tried so far two OS, three torrent clients and three image writing tools with the same frustrating result. Let me a couple of questions that could help me:

 

- Can you (or anyone else) see the contents of your dmg image (the one you got from the torrent and used to install OS X) by using a tool able to manage dmg files on windows (like PowerISO, etc.)? Because I can't (6 files downloaded so far). And I think I should if the image were healthy, but maybe I'm wrong and a USB image works differently and no tool for windows is able.

 

- Is it necessary to format or prepare the USB in any special way? Or maybe to somehow configure USB driver on windows? I just followed the videos and articles posted on this site and others on youtube: formatting it through windows hd tool in FAT32. Nothing else. Am I missing something? 

 

Thanks

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM com.apple.audio.DriverHelper[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named com.apple.bluetoothaudiod." repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
