MacPwn Yosemite Installer 16 minutes remaining...

Question

Jack Anyon    1

Hi all, sorry about the title. 

 

My problem is that after starting the OSX Yosemite installer, the time remaining is 16 minutes - and it has been for about an hour now. I dont think its making any progress at all...

 

I'm using a Lenovo Z580, Intel i5 3210m, 6GB RAM - Which previously has Mountain Lion installed. I used MacPwn for Yosemite to create the installer. It doesn't freeze because I can still use the mouse and move it around on screen ??

Any help anyone ?? 

Thanks everyone !!

Okay, well I sorted it out myself so anyone who might ever have this problem;

1) Restart your PC and boot the Installer with whatever flags - I didn't need any. 

2) Go Utilities>Disk Utility

3) Select your Partition, then click verify disk. After that, click repair disk, found in the lower right of the box.

4) Install onto your partition :)

I have the same stuck installer. I tried verify and repair, didn't do anything. Eventually there was a reported error of stuck trying to install essentials pkg. So, any other ideas? thanks johnm

I've had that before and I've normally fixed it by remaking the installer, make it using MacPwn if you're not already :)

Maybe someone can help me. I created USB using MacPwn. Problem is it never gives me "Customize" button, so I'm not able to create installer the way my hardware requires. Also command line options text length is limited and I cannot type in all my options.

    • Hi guys, managed to make a hackintosh and everything is going great (Wifi, cpu ECT)   But it's pretty damn slow, i tried one of my favorite lightweight games to test (The Ultimate Doom) and it could barely run THAT! This is my first time and i have no idea how to get my 8570 to work.. Probably should have read a bit, eh? Lol.   And no I don't plan on using my hackintosh for gaming, but god so slow..   Thanks, help would be very appreciated. Edit: It's the dedicated version btw, and in about my mac I see "Graphics Display 3 MB" maybe the issue?  
    • Trying to boot to the installer but I get instant reboot after the following: I am using the following flag (I tried a variation - I need USBBusFix=Yes otherwise it fails even earlier): All my USB devices turn off just before it reboots, so I'm guessing it loses connection to the USB install media - but I can't work out why it's disabling all the USB's. CPU: AMD FX 8350 (8-core)
      RAM: 12GB HyperX Fury
      Motherboard: AsRock Fatal1ty 990FX Killer
      GPU: Gigabyte 4GB NVIDIA GTX 960
    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. Thanks! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
