Hi Guys,

After a long hiatus I'm back trying to get my laptop to work with osx, but this time its not a install problem, its a terminal problem, Im going to use the clover boot loader so I'm following tonys instructions, and sadly while using the terminal to setup the usb i get stuck on "Copying installer files to disk..."
Its been about a hour since this started and I'm starting to worry, any help?

On what hardware are you creating your USB stick?
