    Hi all,

    Tried to install PB2 on my work Air (I KNOW DON'T YELL AT ME) and I can't get past the Apple loading bar screen. The bar loads all the way to the end and then just gets stuck there.

    Booted into recovery mode and did a reinstall. Same thing.

    Help?

    Hold down Command + V while starting. What process is the machine hanging on?

    How long did you wait? It can take an incredible long time before you actually get past the start-up bar. I think the computer is rearranging all the files on your SSD or hard-disc. This can take a long long while. But after three start-up's things tend to speed up. Don't do anything more dramatic than leaving your machine on during the night (and day) but it should start up after a few ..... well.... (or more) hours.
