Currently Being ModeratedAug 30, 2009 5:02 PM (in response to William Kucharski)Out of curiosity, was the 10.6 a clean system? Or was it upgraded from 10.5?Mac Pro (2008) MacBook Pro (2008), Mac OS X (10.5.7), Final Cut Studio 3
Currently Being ModeratedAug 30, 2009 6:10 PM (in response to meatpuppet)Upgrade from 10.5.
Except for when I had a bad hard drive I don't think I've ever clean installed an OS release, and haven't had any issues, either (well, aside from this one.)Quad 2.5 GHz G5, 5 GB | 15" 2.6 GHz MBP Penryn, 4 GB | 1 TB Dual-Band TC, Mac OS X (10.6)
Currently Being ModeratedAug 31, 2009 3:18 AM (in response to William Kucharski)Same Problem,
absolute clean install on a Macbookpro (Latest version) with brand new Snow leopard installed,
installer hung up on the motion content #2 disk
what do you do next?MacPro 2.8Ghz Quad core, Mac OS X (10.5.6), 2.8Ghz MP, 8TB RAID 5, EX1 & HDV deck, FC Studio 2, CS4
Currently Being ModeratedAug 31, 2009 8:02 AM (in response to Toby Heslop)Hmmm, didn't have that issue; my install succeeded after the hang I had on the Final Cut Studio Install disc.
Did you try using "top" to find out what particular process was stuck?Quad 2.5 GHz G5, 5 GB | 15" 2.6 GHz MBP Penryn, 4 GB | 1 TB Dual-Band TC, Mac OS X (10.6)

Currently Being ModeratedSep 6, 2009 2:42 PM (in response to William Kucharski)Also make sure your discs are absolutely clean. I did a clean install of FCS the other night and got an error. One disc had a gnat hair on it. DVDs are very picky when not clean.
Also I made disc images of the all FCS2 discs. Doing this you don't have to sit there inserting dics after disc. You just mount all the discs...go to the the first install disc...go though the setup menus...hit install and then take a nap. Then when you want to do a clean install again your FCS are ready. I even have third party programs installers on that hard drive.G-4 1.2 GIG, 1.5 GIGs of Ram, Mac OS X (10.5.8), Quicktime 7.6.2, FCS2, iWorks 09 and a bunch of other stuff...
Currently Being ModeratedSep 6, 2009 3:14 PM (in response to David M Brewer)If I remember correctly from my own FCS2 install, that hang was normal. I think it had something to do with installing templates, livetype fonts etc etc. You just had to leave it there for a long time and the install eventually completed.
How long did you leave it? I seem to remember it taking at least an hour at this stage.MacPro 2.66 GHz, Macbook Pro 2.2 GHz, Mac OS X (10.6), FCS 2, AE 8
Currently Being ModeratedSep 6, 2009 3:49 PM (in response to Denis Murphy)This hang was not normal.
The thread I mentioned was spinning for no apparent reason - there were no system calls being issued at all for at least ten minutes (thanks, DTrace!!)
Killing the thread allowed the install to continue immediately, and running the command by hand showed the command also completed instantly, so something went very wonky somewhere.Quad 2.5 GHz G5, 5 GB | 15" 2.6 GHz MBP Penryn, 4 GB | 1 TB Dual-Band TC, Mac OS X (10.6)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 14, 2009 7:44 AM (in response to William Kucharski)Hello,
I fortunately came across this discussion. I want to install FCS2 on my iMac which is now running under Snow Leopard and I also got stuck at "about a minute" remaining time.
But it seems that the answer to solve this is give in an answer William has given. The only thing is, I don't get it what to do.
I typed in the word Top in Terminal I saw that it is indeed "hanging" on ConfigureMimeTypes. Through "show contents" I got to the ConfigureMimeTypes file (at least I think that is what I should do). But then...?
Another thought was, that I had to install the QuickTimeMpeg2Pro.Pkg. So I have tried that also. But then the same happens, it got stuck at "the remaining one minute issue".
Can someone please tell me what to do?
Please consider the fact that I'm not a very technical person and that english is not my native language.
Thanks a lot.

Currently Being ModeratedSep 15, 2009 2:25 AM (in response to William Kucharski)Try installing only the applications, without the template content. Get it running, update everything, and then run the installation packages individually on each of the disks.macPro Nehalem, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 15, 2009 10:26 AM (in response to mugwump88)Done that!! Tried to install only the apps so all I left all the content unchecked. But even than, it hangs at "one minute to go". And I even keep it running from that point during the whole night. And in the morning nothing changed. It still hung at "one minute to go".
(the actual message will be somewhat different but I just translate it for my system runs on Dutch for I'm Dutch)
But anybody??????2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.6)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 17, 2009 2:46 PM (in response to William Kucharski)William, I have this exact problem - can you please explain your post & what you did in a little more detail? After you presumably force quit the installer then what do you do?
I don't understand: "Running the same thread by hand succeeded immediately, so manually killing the spinning process seemed to have no ill effects and allowed the installation to proceed as expected."
Would really appreciate the help...
ThanksMBP 2.8, Mac OS X (10.6)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 18, 2009 12:30 PM (in response to FamilyJules)Same problem. I forced quit the installer and restarted. I'm manually installing the content DVDs and, so far, there haven't been any issues. This happened on a clean install of 10.6 with the 10.6.1 update.MacBook Pro 15" unibody, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
