    It has hung at "less than a minute remaining" for an hour now. What do?

    (Yes I know you all hate me for giving him a beta but that doesn't help.)

    Mine hung at that for 30 minutes on a '13 Macbook Air using a rather fast USB 3 flash drive. Just give it another few hours and go from there.

    I don't believe there's a way to install the GM directly, at least for now. You have to install DP1 or PB1 and then apply all the updates.

    I wish Apple had given the new install media for the GM. 8 DPs is a lot to update.

    FWIW, when I installed the first beta, I had the same experience, it wouldn't go past 1 minute remaining for over an hour. But thankfully, it eventually resumed.

    When DP1 came out (and the next few deltas) this theory was correct - when no other full installers were available.

    However since then there have been many full installers.

    Here is a list of all the full installers:

    DP1, DP5, DP7, GM1, PB1, PB2, PB3, PB4.

    That's 8 full installers.

    So if you were under the impression that DP1 is the only full installer, that was correct for a short time, but not for long. We have come a long way since then.

    So if you want to install the GM directly, redeem a code for it in the mac dev center and you will get the full installer for the GM and you won't need any of the deltas.

    Hey, you're right! I just redeemed the code once again and it started downloading the GM seed, all 5.17GB of it, so not a delta, but a full installer.

    Now I expect the OP can just follow the instructions to create a bootable installer for Mavericks and they should work with Yosemite too.

    you can install any version you want dude, you just have to download the 5gb .pkg file which is super easy to find and download. I can DM you the link is you want.
