INSTALLATION FAIL CUSTOM PARTITIONING
I'm triying to install GhostBSD on and old imac 7,1 in which I've been running linux w/o any issues. I made a clean up and prepare 3 main partitions 1 for Mac Os x 10.9 aka Mavericks, another for a Linux distro a left over 30 gb for Ghostbsd, didnt wann work only with it till i'll get familiar with. I choose the mnual UFS aprtition and select auto create on the left over slice all seems to be ok, till almost the end of the indtallation when the installer claims cannou update repository list then fail an got the attached .log file. I've tried to check the .iso file but it works fine as it allos me to install by using the entire drive 3 times in a row. Wonder what I'm doing wrong.
Your inputs are highly appreciated
Thanks a lot for your job

look like it was a EFI setup issue.
I am not sure why since the I do not know the exact layout of your partitioning on the disk what I can say is this:
Running: mount -t msdosfs /dev/ada0p1 5 /mnt/boot/efi usage: mount [-adflpruvw] [-F fstab] [-o options] [-t ufs | external_type] mount [-dfpruvw] special | node mount [-dfpruvw] [-o options] [-t ufs | external_type] special node EXITERROR: Error 1: mount -t msdosfs /dev/ada0p1 5 /mnt/boot/efi
is part of the issue.
