OSX Mavericks Developer Preview 4 boot stuck on wheel

9 years ago

After upgrading to the developer preview 4 I found that my mac mini does not boot with the external screen attached on the HDMI port. It starts booting and then the WindowServer crashes (no warning or anything) and the display presents the spinning symbol on the grey background forever and ever.

Just in case you are having the same problem - apparently, and according to this [link](http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1612506&page=5) - you can unplug the external screen and let it boot, connecting after more or less 2 minutes (or whatever time your mac takes to boot). After that it should recognize the screen as usual.
