    Please do not install this 10.10.3 beta if you have the opportunity to if you are in the program. It causes coding to appear everywhere on the screen and then it crashes when you try to login, and then goes back to login screen. You won't be able to get to desktop. :p

    If you care to know, it brings Photos to the Mac...that's the main thing besides fixing stability etc...or in this case adding more instability. :eek:

    Hmmm. A lot of folks on other forums don't seem to be experiencing this.

    Oh? Well it was a never ending issue for me so I went back to 10.10.2. Do I try the install again? I don't know if I want to haha.

    @Napoleon PhoneApart I'll try once more and report back later.

    I fell asleep while it was installing. It did its thing and rebooted it looked like. I turned on computer and logged in and then it showed a bunch of coding again and then crashed back to login like before.

    Worked for my friend.

    Do you not have any ideas to fix this? This makes me mad. I've had no issues with other beta OSX.

    Notifications for app not working again...ugh.

    10.10.3 won't be seeing me. I'll report it on the feedback app thing.

    Really? You're giving up on the whole shebang? There are a lot of people running the beta just fine. Try Googling and find out if others are having the same problem you are.

    I have done that and all I see as it's only just recently come out, is news about it. My friend installed it fine on his Macbook Air. Maybe it's an issue with my early 2011 Macbook Pro? I doubt that. I've been able to install beta since day one. Maybe this beta is causing issues for my early 2011 laptop and is the same for others with that aged computer and Apple will look into it? Who knows.

    For the record, I didn't just try to install it once.

    Why don't you just restore to 10.10.2? You could try the beta again after that if you wanted.

    I am back on 10.10.2. I have tried maybe 7 times total installing 10.10.3 and I get the same coding page. The install doesn't even fully happen now.

    Naps, he doesn't like to Google. He always asks me to. And I can usually find the answer, except this time.

    Heheh. I was Googling (actually, I was probably Altavistaing) in the 90s during my first computer build.

    If you read above, I did use Google but all I see are news reports about 10.10.3.

    Boot into verbose mode and uninstall your virtual machine software if you have the beta installed right now. Otherwise, just uninstall the virtual software while on 10.10.2 and and then try the beta again. Post your kernel panic log (/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports) if you continue to have trouble.

    I guess I should have said I've been using my main profile for beta. My friend does the same thing and uses it for anything he does. The only difference is that he's on a Macbook Air.

    I've had no issues installing other beta.

    I am finally on 10.10.3 after erasing everything and going all the way back to Snow Leopard, doing the updates etc etc, going to Yosemite, signing in blah blah then installing 10.10.3. I know, you're probably thinking...hours for all that just to get to a beta? Well, I'm happy. The issue was bad installation still in the system and the only way to erase it was to do what I did.
