Hi!
Making the USB installer with both Unibeast 6.0 and 6.0.1 hangs after copying files when its installinging the boot loader .

Here are the logg entries:

I had a reinstall of my system with yosmite and to do that i had just one ram og 4gb in.
Didn't get the problem then.
I don't know of course what the solution was.
The ram or the reinstall.
sorry.

I was on Mavericks but broke my install...tried so many things and got some problems with permissions on the disk so thats why reinstalled. To get into installer and pass essentials.pkg I had to use one ram only.

bumping this thread as also having this issue!

*Ive tried multiple USB's all 16GB sticks

*Ive re-downloaded El-Capitain a number of times

*Ive tried both EFI Boot Mode & Legacy

*Have also tried removing one stick of RAM as stated in post above

Still getting stuck on "Installing bootloader" :banghead:


EDIT**** This is 100% a problem with unibeast 6.1.1 as have just managed to created 1 x Yosemite install USB and 1 x Mavericks USB using 5.2.0

Have same problem, same log messages...trying to upgrade my Yosemite hac to El Cap. Checked all steps in the procedure, tried 16GB and 32GB USB sticks in 2.0 and 3.0 sockets (This is UniBeast 6.1.1-20151108) -- also why does the dialogue stay open with the clock going round, after the installer has actually given up?

I have the same problem, trying to install El Capitan with my Hackintosh on my USB Drive. Would it work using an older version of Unibeast ? Is there any solution ?
Its also worth mentioning that my Usb Drive flashes when its being used by the system. When installing the bootloader and getting stuck it doesnt flash anymore.

Think I may have the answer to this...another log file is created on the USB drive itself, and this one reports a problem mounting the EFI partition. This occurs because the partition is formatted MSDOS, and the system is failing to load the kernel module for accessing MSDOS partitions. In my case that was because I had booted my Mac in Safe Mode (It is another Hackintosh and will not boot otherwise!). The USB log indicated that it is possible to have the EFI partition formatted as HFS, and this should enable it to mount. So I am now trying this...SUCCESS! :) Unibeast now completes and I have a bootable USB stick.

...however I now have the problem that attempting to start Clover gives the "Can't find /System/Library/Kernels/kernel" message. This file is not present on the USB stick. Should it be??
