OSInstall appears to be missing or damaged

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have the famous "OSInstall.mpkg appears to be missing or damaged"

 

Background:

 

Before I had installed macOS 10.13.1 that ran without a problem, without weird errors. So I decided to make a clean install of 10.13.2, I downloaded the latest macOS using AppStore (at first it downloaded like 19 MB after that I started the installation and when it downloaded all the files right before reboot I quit the installer and I did make a new folder inside the OS X Installer called SharedSupport where I copied the downloaded files by the Installer)

 

then I made the USB using createinstallmedia then installed the latest Clover, put my kexts and config.plist in place and rebooted. I erased the SSD using Disk Utility, then I selected the disk to install macOS. It took 30 seconds the installation (strange I know) and after reboot I booted from SSD and I get that error regarding "OSInstall.mpkg appears to be missing or damaged"

 

I tried:

 

- Clear NVRAM using Clover,

- Update all kexts to the latest version

- Check USB for errors

 

I think that the 19 MB installer and the copied frankenstein thing ****** up the installer.

      Hello.
      I'm trying to install 10.13.3 for iMacPro on SATA SSD. The motherboard is ASUS WS X299 PRO.
      The installation process hangs when 'less than a minute left' is displayed on screen. The last messages I can see in the installation log are at the picture attached to this post.
      If I then reset the system and boot what was installed I can continue the installation. Unfortunately, it stucks at the end again. Next, if I try to boot what was finally installed I can even get to working system. But I cannot install the updates because of the same hanging at the end!
      This is not relevant to:
      APFS or HFS+ - both hang Locked or unlocked MSR 0xE2 - both cases hang Special build for iMacPro or ordinary build - installing both builds hang Flash drive prepared using 'createinstallmedia', BDU or using RecoveryHD - all hang USB drive failure or disconnected USB port. I rule that out by installing from recovery partition with all USB drives disconnected. It is not a SATA disk issue. Tried to install using another SSD drive. Hangs. Also tried to install on HDD - hangs. Changing to iMac18,3 did not help as well. Lastest dev beta (common) did not fix it - hangs. Please help me to figure out what's wrong.
      My config file is attached.
      Moving a bit further... The first stage of installation goes fine in Safe Mode (-x). Installation log indicates the same log message and after that it reboots immediately. Seems to be a normal behaviour. However, the second stage ("install macOS from <volume>") still hangs. Running the second stage in Safe Mode panics with "process 1 exec of /sbin/launchd failed".
      SOLVED. It turned out that "hardware" NVRAM doesn't work with AptioMemoryFix on this motherboard. But works in Safe Mode. This is weird but it's true. Fallback to OsxAptioFixDrv2 + EmuVariableUEFIDrv solved my problem. Installation now finished just fine.
      UPDATE. Turning off 'Above 4G decoding' BIOS option resolved the problem with NVRAM. Now I back to AptioMemoryFix.
