Re: Type11 v7.5 ISO Posted Please Help Test! [BETA] - 01-30-2009, 03:44 PM
I am also getting 'applescript error mount_hfs: invalid argument (1)' after having installed using v7.9; and fully patched from Apple site. System will boot fine from the v7.9 Boot CD, but cannot get the Installe.dmg to run!!
System is using a 32Gb SSD configured with 1 GUID Partitian.
Tried running Installer.dmg from CD, HD and Desktop and doing a Disk Utility Permision Repair but still get: applescript error mount_hfs: invalid argument (1)
Then I tried the Shell command options that other posts have had success with. The following was my experience:
diskutil eraseVolume "HFS+" "EFI" /dev/disk0s1
But got the following:
Could not unmount disk for making it bootable
Error with erase: Could not unmount disk (-10000)
[ + 0%..10%..20%..30%..40%..50%..60%..70%..80%..90%..1 00% ]
Finished erase on disk disk0s1
Tried the installer again and same result: applescript error mount_hfs: invalid argument (1)
# fsck_hfs -f -y /dev/disk0s1
[Not Sure what this response means!]
# mkdir /Volumes/EFI
mkdir: /Volumes/EFI: File exists
[Assumed this response was OK]
# mount_hfs /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/EFI
mount_hfs: Invalid argument
[Not clear why this did not work? or what it means!!]
# umount /Volumes/EFI
umount: /Volumes/EFI: not currently mounted
I am suspicious that there may be an issue with running mount_efs on my system, but having not changed anything since the full install, and do not have enough expereince with MAC's I am struggeling to troubleshoot further, so cannot guess what is going on.
Now I am at a dead end! Any help would be MOST welcomed.
