Default Install stalls, NBI 0.8.4RC1 - 04-20-2010, 08:14 PM

Error message in the logs:

localhost OSInstaller[244]: ./postinstall: cp: /Volumes/ramdisk/dsdt/latest_dsdt.dsl: No such file or directory

Any thoughts?

I have the same issue. Did you ever get this figured out?

Its just a bug in NBI, (its really just a typo in the code for generic devices)..

Fastest way around it..

during install after nbi freezes on DSDT generation, go to terminal.

sudo -s (enter root pass)
cd /Volumes/ramdisk/dsdt
mv latest_dsdt.dsl latest_dsdl.dsl
exit from terminal

NBI will continue as normal (pretty much instantly)... You could also hex patch the installer but this solution seems to work just fine..
