Wow, excellent deal for that price :clap:

Yes I was super lucky, the guy had an office with like 5 units and this one was the last one left. It looks brand new, it had the card reader 'upgrade' as well. I bought the gt710 2 GB for like 15 euro so and I put a 120GB SSD in for 20 euro so all in all for 60 euro im done

Is it normal that it's been 'stuck' on this for the past 40' ?

What kind of Mac are you using to make your installer ? What version of macOS ? Did you disable SIP first ?

Mid 2012 with catalina (screenshot), about the SIP, when i wanted to open unibeast i got the standard notification that it wasn't a 'apple store app' and i clicked the 'open anyway' in system preferences under the security & privacy tab.

This is normal to get that message. If you are running Catalina follow these steps in the video:


Instructions start at about the :40 mark.

Thanks! got around to install mojave on it, but im stuck on multibeast, just constantly getting the installation error. (cant find what settings to use in multibeast for this hp) I've probably already re-installed it like 7 times and keep not being able to use Multibeast, it just says ' The installation failed' 'the installer encountered an error that cause the software to fail. Check the Multibeast.log Install log for more details' I attached the log, does someone have any answer to this...

Edit-

Fixed it, the problem was that I thought i was being smart making a fusion drive, its not, i got multibeast to work when i partitioned the drive. so when i found that out I split the drives and did a clean install of mojave and then multibeast worked perfectly. the only issue i have now is that i cant seem to find out how to set up clover configurator for my hackintosh
