Problem erasing partition for OS X install.

Question

Guest Qwertyness

I am trying to install Niresh OS X Mavericks on a partition on the same disk as my Windows install.  In windows I created a 200GB partition formatted with NTFS.  When I booted with Niresh and tried to erase the partition to format with the Mac journaled file system, I was greeted with this error: "MediaKit reports not enough space on device for requested operation."

 

Since the partition erase didn't work, I also tried to boot Niresh with some unallocated space on the drive and create the partition in OS X.  Disk Utility got stuck on the preparing to create partition bar.

 

I tried the first method on my other laptop however, and it worked fine (minus the inability to boot, but that's another problem :P)

 

The laptop I'm attempting to set for dual boot is an Asus VevoBook with Windows 8.1, an i7 processor, a 750GB 5400RPM HHD, and Intel 4000 HD graphics.

The other laptop is an Alienware M17x with Windows 8, an i7 processor, a 500GB 7200RPM HDD, and an ATI Radeon HD 7970m graphics card.

 

Is there any other way I could successfully install OS X onto a partition on my Windows disk?

 

If any other information is needed, please ask.

    • 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?
