MacPwn Yosemite Installer 16 minutes remaining...

Question

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 :)

    • Oh, thank you but in the meantime I thought again and have installed High Sierra instead. It works just fine, put a camera, bluetooth, wifi, all working OK. I only have to solve a little problem when doing restart it freezes but after shutdown it comes up good! I have also Win7 on same mbr disk and I start with the installation usb but I think go over to EasyBCD to make a smoother boot. If your experienced I would appreciate very much any hints for helping me in this direction.

    • Hi, i am struggling with installation telling me that it needs less than one minute for eternity. in log it shows that "./postinstall: Using AMD Bronya Kernel" process is running, but 4 hours is too long for "Less than a minute" don't you think ;).    Please help me, i tried to install Mac OS on Intel and AMD processor PC, same problem.  
    • Hola, generalmente se postea en ingles.   Podrias dejar las especificaciones de tu tarjeta madre, por ejemplo: RAM PROCESADOR GPU ETC   Ademas de los componentes que tienes instalados... tengo una pregunta para ti.   Ya comprobaste la compatibilidad de tu ordenador con el sistema operativo?
