When clicking the 'Install' button i get the following Screen:
The following required components were not found on installation disc: Essential System Software
In the console it says
Required package com.apple.pkg.SIUResources not found for item EssentialSystemSoftwareGroup
My /System/Installation/Packages is okay, i md5sum-checked it. How could i possibly fix this?

same here, missing SIUResources.pkg, i tried copying the package from dp4 image and it seems to work quite fine, though not sure if there're any side effects

OK, for all who are having this problem, I'll bet money it has to do with OSInstall.mpkg. If your not installing onto a MBR drive, don't touch it when you make your USB installer and just use the version that comes with the GM. The list of Essential System Software lives inside that package and up until the GM, that included SIUrecources. If your using a patched OSInstall.mpkg referenced in one of the tutorials out there, it will expect that SIUresources be one of the required packages, but in reality it is no longer part of the installation. The patched OSInstall is only needed for MBR installs so half of you who are using GUID GPT don't need it anyway. If you are installing to MBR because Windows is on the same drive, then try manually adding the SIUresouce.pkg to your installer.
My bad guys. I remember what I did. I got my MBR patch files from HERE
. Just copy them to the appropriate folders and replace the files when asked. Works like a charm on retail.
