how did you uninstall it?

anyways if you are trying to install yosemite there are a number of ways to do that

though its a long process, it works fine

first you have to download the yosemite OS externally and then you have to make it into a bootable drive, here's a guide on how to do that please note that since you cant connect to the appstore you will have to download yosemite another way

You'll need to manually download the OS installer and save it on a bootable drive. You will then need to boot up under this drive to then install the OS.

Apple's OS recovery downloader is having problems.

I've been working on this for a long time, so this is the answer....

Seems like I have to reinstall it manually.

Thanks a lot!
