Pandora's Box (Beta 2 Testing)

Recommended Posts

How do I tell you where the app crashes?

 

Tried running on both of my machines to creat an installer USB.

 

It fails to create the install USB.

 

This happens right after the restore of the base system and before it copies the additional applications / packages.

 

I am unable to show you exactly at what script step it crashes.

I have a similar problem, the app crash when i drag the USB device in window.

Pandora  and 10.9 app is in Applications

Initially I used Pandora direct from the downloads folder.

 

Then after seeing this I wiped my thumb drive again and repeated after dragging Pandora into the Applications folder.

 

Both times same result - It would not recognise I had enough space on the USB drive until I formatted to 2 partitions - then went like a dream.

 

I am working with Mavericks, the official DP1 installer, which was installed by the App Store into my Applications folder of my MacBook Air. The MBA itself is running 10.7.5.

Oh, sorry MiniHack the question was not directed to you (I was writing from my SmartPhone this morning, and I was not aware of your posts), I was asking to user esmith1977.

 

I think Pandora.app (for now) must be into Application folder, and Install app (or InsatllESD.dmg) into Desktop, but not on another partition or hard disk.

The solution to this for me was to extract the installesd.dmg from the mavericks dmg and put in on the desktop and then use that to do the install.

I can confirm creating 2 partitions one of which is 8gb works with usb drive for me.

Regretably my installer does not seem to be working. Tried with ML as well as Mav. The USB stick does not seem to be seen as bootable as when set as first boot device my board ignored it and moved on to next disk.

 

I then re-partitioned as 1 partition and tried another well known installer (!) and that created the USB installer correctly which then was recognised properly by my board and went on to install 10.8.4 properly.

 

Will continue to act as a willing tester though for Pandora and keep up the good work.

Guys, is going to get an update (I think an hour), with some things corrected with the problems encountered in this Topic.

As soon as you see him try to update the app that you have already downloaded (will not be in the Download section)

Hi,
you can do a reboot of your PC/router?
I just downloaded Pandora from the download section, and updated it from his Preferences panel (download from another place), all ok!

I was able to update successfully from the menu.

 

I am now able to create the installer on my 16GB USB without having to create 2 partitions.

 

However, still my USB stick is not seen as bootable and am getting can't find Mach kernel.

Okay, so it is not renaming my stick - name gets listed as simply OSX Base System and here is the output for that:

 

BaseSystem.chunklist System
BaseSystem.dmg boot.efi
Install OS X Mountain Lion.app kernelcache
Library mach_kernel
Packages usr
 
I'm next going to copy over the DP1 to my hack which is on 10.8.3 and try from there with a fresh Pandora install.
