    Have an issue with the mountain lion install. It seems to have frozen sine time remaining is currently at -11 minutes. Any ideas on what I can do?

    Just be patient, mine did that as well. Itll start a new countdown with like 19 mins, and then finish up. I was nervous too when mine did that, but youll be fine, dont worry.

    Just let it go. It's probably not a problem with the install. If you have a lot of files on your computer, this sometimes happens.

    My install froze at 33 minutes for literally 24 hours. I called AppleCare and they could not help me. Is it time to completely reformat back into Lion? I tried turning the computer on and off and it keeps getting stuck at 33 or 31 minutes, this latest time for 6 hours.
