Nearly, but not quite...... Install always fails at the last 6 minutes!

Recommended Posts


thanks for all this hard work. I hate Windows and am a MAC OS fan. 

Would someone kindly indulge me and help me with a problem please.
Everything goes well with installation until the last six minutes!!

I formatted the dedicated HDD no problems, choose language, follow the customisation settings, and then installation starts and appears all is going well....... until the last six minutes......every time fails at the last 6 minutes!

I get a MAC screen message saying installation has failed and to restart.
This is a MAC OS message, not PC, so for some reason the MAC OS fails at the last 6 minutes.
I have tried many of the options and nothing gets past the last 6 minutes. Always fails when there is only 6 minutes of the install left to go.

My PC is as follows:


Gigabyte P55A-UD3 (Rev 2.0)
Intel i7

ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6

Dedicated 1TB HDD for the MAC install.

My PC easily restarted back into Win 8.1Pro so my system has not been upset by trying to install Niresh Mavericks.


I have attached screen shot of error message when it is at 6 minutes before completion.

I look forward to any help.
