    Installation locks up!

    I'll definately do that, I have to wait until Monday what the installing machine is available again (friends computer). How can I verify that the usb installer is good? Last time i followed the instructions step by step from the myhack site. Thank you guys again. MrM

    Installation locks up!

    This is what I found when I ran the log according to Bob's instructions: ============================ 1 Jan 19 05:29:51 localhost LCA[302]: Bookmark failed to issue extension for this item (depth=4000): No such file or directory 1 Jan 19 05:30:01 localhost OSInstaller[315]: Bookmark failed to issue extension for this item (depth=4000): No such file or directory 1 Jan 19 05:30:04 localhost Unknown[303]: Keyboard Layouts: duplicate keyboard layout identifier -16899. 1 Jan 19 05:30:04 localhost Unknown[303]: Keyboard Layouts: keyboard layout identifier -16899 has been replaced with -28673. 1 Jan 19 05:30:04 localhost Unknown[303]: Keyboard Layouts: duplicate keyboard layout identifier -16900. 1 Jan 19 05:30:04 localhost Unknown[303]: Keyboard Layouts: keyboard layout identifier -16900 has been replaced with -28674. 1 Jan 19 05:32:08 localhost OSInstaller[315]: No recovery image found relative to distribution. 1 Jan 19 05:32:08 localhost OSInstaller[315]: PFPackage::packageWithURL - can't instantiate package: /System/Installaation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg ======================= It locked up after that last line. (I set up the Bios exactly as the sugested url for the D630) Any ideas? I am searching the net to see how to resolve the instantiation of the installer

    Installation locks up!

    OSX 10.7 from app store the myhack device was created with a macbook pro running 10.8 My bios is A08 (maybe this is my problem, but at least in his signature Bob is running a very similar machine with the same Bios) I went thru the bios and basically shut off everything except the usb (so the computer could read the usb stick) Wifi/bluetooth everything else was off. Booted up with the -v and I am able to get to partition and erase the Toshiba MK8034GSX 80gb drive as journaled and GUID. I get to accept the apple terms and conditions and select the drive where I want to install the os. It starts installing the os, then it freezes: I am left staring at the installation screen with a giant X and a frozed blue bar with a numeric minute countdown. This morning I thought it was me being impatient, so I left it for hours to see if it was just taking a long time (being that the computer is not an apple product) 2 hours later..stock at 18 minutes. Is there a way to see where in the installation at the 18 minute mark is happenning? I would have thought that after the os is running, its just a matter of copying into the drive. It manages to boot up from the usb flawlessly everytime. Thank you in advance. MrM

    Admin: I am really a newbie. I have shut off most everything at the Bios. I am following the installation step by step, however It locks up at 18 minutes left on the installation. Any ideas? Thxs!

    It has a Dell Wireless 1395 WIFI, No Bluetooth. I'll shut them off on the bios regardless and let you know. Is there a way to do a verbose installation so I see and post why the setup is failing? Thx!

    Installation locks up!

    Greetings!!! I am following the step-by-step process to run OSX on my Latitude D530. I created the boot flash disk, with the image inside. Powered the computer with the usb, the installer is read, I get to select the language, then installation begins and it locks up. The farthest that I have gotten is 18 minutes remaining. Any ideas? Any help would be appreciated. My model is the Core2 Dou, with 4 gb of memory, the harddrive was freshly partitioned (journaled)....What can I try? Thank you in advance MrM
