I have the same problem as described here.

I've installed SC2 on two systems, one had this "Insert DVD" problem, the other did not. I deleted all of the files and re-downloaded on the system asking for a DVD and it still asked for the DVD. I tried moving the files out of my home directory as suggested by another user here and it worked. Out of curiosity I tried moving the files to somewhere other than /Applications (I used /Users/Shared) and it still worked. The one thing that comes to mind as a difference between my two systems is that the system where I'm asked for a DVD if the files are in my home directory has Filevault (home directory encryption) turned on. The system where I was not asked for a DVD does not have Filevault enabled. I wonder if the installer is confused by Filevault.

I'm wondering if someone here had the same problem and found a solution to this.

I just found the solution here: http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/forum/topic/166496671#9

You have to either disable FileVault (not recommended) or just move the installer folder to another location, which is not encrypted.

  • Note that you can easily add a new unencrypted "volume" on your encrypted hard drive. This is unlike a partition and has a flexible size. Open the "Disk Utility" application and click the plus symbol above "Volume". The rest should be self-explanatory.
