    I take it from other reports that I'm not the only one that crashed during setup on FileVault. Incidentally, my system was on 10.10.2. In the process of updating now.

    Yeah, mine did too. I rebooted and was good to go then.

    I said "screw it" since nothing had been installed yet and did an Internet Recovery installation of 10.10.3.

    Same here except it then created 2 admins and I had to go in and delete the first one. Mildly annoying.

    Ha :mad: same here - which was another reason to wipe the thing clean with an erase and IR install.

    I wonder if it's only happening to those macbooks with 10.10.2 installed.

    Mine (1.2/512) came with 10.10.2 installed. FileVault went off without a hitch whatsoever. No delay, no beachball... As soon as I booted into OS X, I updated to 10.10.3. FileVault is on, and all seems well.

    Sorry for those of you who have had trouble!

    looks like a common problem. so did mine.
    i just force rebooted it and there was two admin accounts, just delete one of them.

    I also experienced the beachball at that step. Fortunately I read a post here to just wait for it. 10-15 minutes later sure enough it went through.

    Same thing happened here a well. I wonder how this escaped their QA process if it's happening on so many (all?) of them.

    I just restarted, created a second admin account and went back and deleted the second one. FileValut enabled no problem, and there was nothing weird after I upgraded to 10.10.3.
