    Hi Everyone:

    My install problem is a little different from others. I am stuck on the OS X install screen. The status bar is not moving at all with an estimated install time of 33 minutes. However, it has been this way for 45 minutes. Is there a way to abort this installation? I have tried rebooting twice but cannot get back to the Snow Leopard start up screen.

    Any advice is welcome,

    Tom

    The time counter is a placebo. Go watch a movie. Or two. Mine was stuck on 33 minutes for about 40 minutes. Later it was stuck on 17 minutes for about 10 minutes. I have a 2008 Macbook with a geekbench score in the low 3000's. I would imagine a Mini is a bit slower. Take a walk. Take a breath. No need to abort.

    The remaining time is terribly inaccurate, don't warry.
