Installation time keeps jumping up

Question

Hi guys,

Anyone had a problem with the time remaining (during installation) going down as it should but then jumping back up?

I've attempted an install on my system a few times now, however must admit I'm using laptop hard drives that I've hooked up externally to my PC that I can't guarantee work 100%.

I managed to get mavericks installed on one of them but got stuck at still waiting for root device and tried all I could to get around it but decided to start again from fresh.

Processor: AMD Phenom II x4

GPU: Asus Nvidia GTX 560Ti and GT520 (I think - can never remember if it's a 420 or 520)

Installation media: USB with Niresh Mavericks (have attempted to rewrite the DMG already to fix the issue)

Might also be worth mentioning that prior to Niresh being recognised when I boot to the USB, I'm given 4 or 5 EBIOS read errors. Have been googling the issue but couldn't find anything too helpful as the USB is new and have already tried burning two different mavericks copies.

I had a similar issue where the installer wouldnt continue, it would just loop from 21 mins to 16 mins. I tried another USB and it worked ok. If you have another USB, try that. If not, try the ISO and write to a DVD

@ Thanks for the reply :)

I've got it installed. I bought a new external hard drive today so thought I'd give it a go. Installed fine however now getting an issue when booting.

Getting the following error:

invalid node structure

the volume Mac could not be verified completely

Not really sure where to go from here as I've never seen this error before, any ideas?

Managed to fix the harddrive issue. Attempted the fsck terminal method however that didn't work - then just did the standard verify disk and repair disk with disk utility.

 

Just gotta' install my Wifi card and configure my onboard 5.1 sound (any suggestions or advice in advance would be really helpful and appreciated) I'm good to go!

@ USBBusFix=Yes must be used if you have seen any USB Errors in Verbose Mode

@ Thanks for your reply :)
I managed to fix the "invalid node structure" error by using the Disk Utility's 'Repair disk' function. However when Niresh finished doing it's configurations the mouse click became unresponsive (nothing I clicked did anything), so I restarted the computer and then it wouldn't boot again. It said the same 'invalid node structure' error. I tried fixing it again with 'Repair disk' however it failed to fix it this time.

 

Do you think 'invalid node structure' is related to USBBusFix?

@ Ah I see - I will try again with USBBusFix and my USB installation media.

 

I can't burn the ISO to DVD though because it's 5.07gb. I thought it could be burned to a standard single layer DVD?

@ the ISO Image of Mountain Lion will fix but apple increased package size so standard dvd won't fix since Mavericks

    • 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)
