What is your internet download speed ? Are you certain that you did steps 4 and 5 ?

4. Rt. click and open BuildMacOSinstallapp.command
5. Drag & Drop the InstallESDDmg.pkg file into the Terminal Window

Maybe restart your router to see if that helps the speeds.

There are more people on the internet and a lot of traffic that will slow speeds down. It's to be expected these days.

Do you have a Windows machine you could try it on? It shouldn't make any difference but anything is worth a try.

This is understandable ... but 160KB/s average on four attempts in 2 days........it's slow....
