OS X: Reinstall OS stuck at "2 minutes left"

Posted on Sat 21 March 2015 in tech

You probably have used homebrew. Haven't you? In the last step of the reinstallation the installer moves / checks files in /usr/local. If you have a lot of files over there (for example because you used homebrew), this takes forever.

Do not abort the installation. Press cmd+L to see the logs.
