I am trying to install Elementary OS on my Macbook Pro 15" early 2013 and the installer freezes on wifi selection system. I can select a Wi-Fi, enter a password or continue without selecting a wifi. The problem starts when i click continue to go to the next step. Nothing happens.

In short, even though it recognizes wifi networks, the installer freezes to continue after wifi selection screen.

Things i have tried: - Different USBs, - Unetbootin and Etcher, - Try Elementary OS without installing (everything including wifi works but the installer is again stuck) - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and 18.10 (they don't recognize wifi drivers so i didn't attempt to install)

Wifi Selection screen on installer

  • Can you post the logs from /var/log/installer? – trishmapow Jan 13 '19 at 9:18
  • @trishmapow when i try elementary os without installing and then run the installer; your command on terminal says bash: /var/log/installer: Is a directory – Richard McGonagol Jan 13 '19 at 9:31
  • Yep I mean post the files that are in that directory so we can see what is happening when it crashes. – trishmapow Jan 13 '19 at 9:38
  • There are two files there: The debug is: textuploader.com/1amuc Version: ubiquity – Richard McGonagol Jan 13 '19 at 10:04
  • Hmm ok what about /var/log/syslog? – trishmapow Jan 13 '19 at 10:11
