  5. Marvelous, completely forgot the key combo plus unplu trick from when High Sierra failed.

    This time for the same problem with Catalina it worked a Treat.

    Many thanks

  6. Updating Mac Mini (Late 14) to Catalina. Stuck between “setting up” and Log in for 8 hours.
    Powered down, unplugged and restarted.
    Had to wait 10 mins, then slowly came back to life.

  7. My MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015) has had this problem for the past few releases, which is to say “the last few years”. It doesn’t make the Mac non-functional, but it does mean that my splash screen is not the fancy photo. I am now on the Catalina Beta, and should see a picture of Catalina Island. What I see is the “Setting up your Mac” screen, overlaid by whatever I have open.

    shift+option+control+power does *not* fix the issue. Also, as described, it sounds like the SMC should be corrected and I *subsequently* power up the Mac. That’s not what I see. I press shift+option+control and then, with those pressed, press power. The Mac instantly boots.

    Not operating as described.

  8. My MacBook pro (late 2013) got stuck at “Setting up your Mac” screen (completely unresponsive) while being updated to Moja e (the update went smoothly before that) and your tip worked. Anyway, I don’t understand why the System Management Controller (SMC) was faulty.

  9. Thanks! It was really helpful. I was worried after resetting my iMac to OS Yosemite 10.10 as this setting up your mac screen was stuck for a long time. But I switched off my iMac and removed power cable for 15 seconds same you have mentioned.

    Its working like a new iMac now.

    Thank you once again.

  10. Thank you! Pressing the Ctrl + Shift + Option + Power buttons worked for me on 1st attempt during the installation of OS X Yosemite. When the computer restarted, installation resumed from the iCloud sign-in step.

      1. Power button is in the back of the screen, on the left hand corner. My iMac was stuck on “setting up your Mac” screen, I pressed Fn+control+option+Power button for a few seconds and it worked!

  11. Press and hold these keys at the same time: Shift-Control-Option keys and the power button
    Release everything (Shift-Control-Option keys, the power button)=======> This absolutely work for me, thanks a lot 🙂

  12. Set up new MacBook Pro stops & will not allow into account, when I enter password. Trying to wifi transfer MacBook 10.6.8 and Pro is stuck in mountain screen. No icons available. Tried off/on. Tried shift/option/control/option shut down.
