[Post Installation Boot Error] Must Boot From USB but freezes during desktop setup

Recommended Posts

Joel Perez

OK I installed Mavericks on my PC with not issues.


Ran the installer, when it finished, it restarted automatically.


When the PC begins booting up it says there "reboot and select proper device to boot"


So I rebooted and chose the boot device myself. I only see my USB Device.


When my usb loads it shows Niresh dmg installation and then it shows the name of the partition I created when erasing my HDD to install Macos.


When I load MacOs from the boot menu it begins with the desktop setup. 


It asks for the language then to choose the keyboard. Then the network, name, password, etc...


If I don't fly through the options fast enough it freezes. No matter if I go fast or slow it freezes.


So I ran through that part of the setup and got into the actual desktop.


So the desktop loads and within seconds I see on the right top corner a message saying its installing Niresh files or something like that. 


Then it freezes. kept happening over and over.


I decided to erase the HDD and reinstall.


The first time I erased the HDD I named it MacOs_Mavericks


I read something not to put spaces or characters so I renamed the new one just mavericks.


Before I began installing Mac I had Ubuntu 13.x


If anyone can help me I really would appreciate it.


All my pc says on the outside is:


Gateway DX4870-UR23P

Intel Core i5 Processor 3470

Intel HD Graphics



DVD SuperMulti Drive

I did the installation and I had to boot from the USB to load the OS again.


I get through the setup and here is what happens when the Desktop loads.


It freezes and shows this message.
