F/U El Cap to HS install hang: SOLVED!
Posted by: prymsnap

What would I do without you Forumites?

The solution was a clean install of HS from a newly created install drive, followed by Migration Assistant. I'll never know why a simple (unclean?) install didn't work, but right now my relief overshadows curiosity. Yes, I should have done a clean install from the get-go. I lost a boatload of time by trying to save time.

Oh, and here's a pro tip: glaring at the progress bar does NOT make it move any faster.

Thanks again, you guys and gals.

That time can be better spent watching a pot of water being heated on the stove, or watching fresh paint.

Glad you got back up running.

Progress bar watching reminded me of a Science Friday segment about buttons:

I do push the crosswalk button repeatedly to make the light change…

Many here have preached the benefits of doing a clean install when upgrading from one major version of the OS to another. It amazes me that more people don't consider the effort to do so worthwhile.



It is what it is.
