Title:

How to install a system on an erased drive

Text:

My customer booted from an external drive and used Disk Utility to erase the drive.  So the repair/restore partition is gone.

It boots and runs fine from an external drive but when I try to install a system it tells me it has to be connected to a power source but there is only the one USB c port.

Any ideas on how to get a system on it?
