[SOLVED] Unibeast Error During 4430s Install

Hi all,
I just got a Probook 4430s that crashes once I boot the 4430s from the Unibeast USB stick. The stock hard drive was replaced with an SSD prior to my ownership, I'm not sure if that is the root of this issue [edit: the SSD was not the issue, see further in thread].

I took a screen pic with verbose mode on:

Can anyone give me a push in the right direction? :banghead:

It could be that you placed the Unibeast USB in a USB3 port instead of USB2. The guide has this "6. Insert the flash drive in one of the USB ports on the right." because I think on most of the ProBooks the USB3 ports are on the left. But perhaps yours is different.

No, this isn't the problem. I have it in the USB2 slots (tried the others to be safe, it doesn't even try to boot off the USB stick in the other slots).

Please help! I was told this probook would be super easy to install OS X on and it's been nothing but trouble...

Try a different brand/model of USB stick.

Also, you can try, when you see the "still waiting for root...", unplug the Unibeast stick and plug in back in.

This was it! Actually, I had to unplug it from the original USB slot and move it over to another, and about 5 seconds later, it successfully proceeded. The Probook 4430s is now fully configured and functioning with no problems! Yay! :headbang:
