Hello there! My name is***** and I will be assisting you today. There might be another program or service stopping it from completing. Follow the steps below to start up in safe boot ( which uses only the basic OSX system) then try the conversion process again.
Turn off your mac then hold the shift key. Turn on your mac continuing to hold the shift key for no less the 2 minutes. You will know this was done correctly if your log in box says safe boot.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
