Installing 10.8.5

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

I have wanted to install Mac OS X on my PC for a while now and have tried and tried and never got it to work because I only buy AMD :). I recently tried with 10.8.2 and couldn't get it to boot properly but now with 10.8.5 I was so excited and relieved to see the installer finally load and let me install.

 

The problem that I am running into is that I get all the way through the setup process and then it starts installing, at about 6 mins it hangs for probably 10 minutes and then starts going again and eventually I get an error that says Install Failed: we could not install on your machine and it only gives me the option to restart.

 

I am using Niresh 10.8.5 with amd64 -v at boot.  I have my specs listed below in my signature.  I am trying to install this beside a Windows 8 partition so my 1TB HD is partitioned into 2 500GB partitions, one Windows 8 and the other for Mac OS X.  The only thing I don't remember doing that I read in the guide is to make the Mac OS X partition a GUID table but I couldn't find the option for it when erasing.

 

If anyone has any advice I would love to finally get this installed :).

 

Thanks,

 

Brandon

You can also try moving the mouse every 10 minutes while the os is installing .sometimes it freezes when u dont move the mouse on some computers .

Yes, we couldn't get ML to work but Mavericks so far is working flawlessly, even got our Radeon 7850 to work fully. :)
