    Hey one of my friends has a Mac and I am installing Mac OS X on it because he is going to buy it off of someone if it works. When I am installing the OS the time remaining keeps rising!

    For example I started it at 6am yesterday morning (July 30th).. this morning at 8am it said it had 55 hours left for the installation! I don't know if this is normal or not but it doesn't seem right, haha.

    Anyone have any suggestions? Could it be the disc I am using maybe or something... I'm all new to Macs so I have no idea what's going on. Feel free to IM me on AIM @ GrabYourWeapons.

    I'll be on there all day, I might just keep checking back here, just AIM would be faster. Thanks in advance!

    The time remaining isnt right...

    Maybe your install DVD is corrupted or the HD of the Mac is broken...

    Yeah I figured something was wrong haha. Like it looks like it's installing everything, it did the base stuff of the OS then the Essentials.. maybe I'll just let it run, but I knew something was wrong. I hope it's not the HD but could be.... ugh. Thanks for the quick replies!
