Can't boot to installer - vm_swap_create_file failed

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

When trying to install Yosemite Zone I stuck with the following:

 

VM Swap Subsystem is ON

Failed to open swap file 30

vm_swap_create_file failed @ 226 sec 

Failed to open swap file 30

vm_swap_create_file failed @ 293 sec 

 

/nothing happens after that, forever/ 

 

I understand that I have rather old setup (GigaByte GA-MA69G-S3H / AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ Socket AM2) that may not necessarily be supported, but I would really appreciate some feedback on what the hell does that error mean. No one else seems to have it :/ 

 

Any ideas?

Here is the picture of the screen

Everything seems to go fine before this swap thing.

@ I only have 2.5GB of RAM in my Dell  Latitude D630. I'm afraid that VMware would be out of the question for me?

 

Which flags should I be trying first in Chameleon? I am fortunate to be able to say that dart=0 and -v helped me some, but my touchpad doesn't respond when I get to the Language selection screen. That is as far as I have gotten. Certainly I haven't gone through all this trouble for nothing, so what do I do next? Please help.  I am on the edge of success here
