Disk Utility on Internet Recovery will not format GUID + Mac OS Extend
I swapped the hard drive on a mid 2012 13" macbook pro to an ADATA SU800 512 GB.
Using Internet Recovery I am trying to reinstall the OS onto the system. Disk Utility refuses to format the drive into the Mac OS Extended format. It always fails with the error "Partition failed with the error: File system formatter failed."
It WILL succeed for MS-DOS (FAT). Both attempts were with GUID. I am out of ideas on how to fix this and it's pretty frustrating. Is the drive itself somehow incompatible with the Mac OS file system?
Is this a good question?
