I cannot reinstall my iMac, keep getting error!
What ever I do, I keep getting this error when trying to reinstall the OS: "an error occurred while preparing the installation. try running this application again"
I have tried the following:
-Disk utlitity, cleaned the drive to Mac OS Extended (Journaled).
-Internet recovery - Getting the same error.
-Booted the iMac - so it installs the OS that came with it (El Capitan). Same error!
-Downloading MacOS from app store from 2 different macs, putting it into a USB (Bootable) - getting the same error.
Tried re-downlading the app 3 times!
-Going in to terminals, typing in "date". The date is 100% correct.
Looks like I am out of luck... anyone who can help
What else can I do? I have tried for several hours, but it wont let me install the OS?
Tried doing the PRAM reset aswell two times (Boot sound coming 3 times)
Currently I removed my Crucial RAM´s. Trying again now to see if it works.
Also, did the "ntpdate - u time.apple. com"
Hopefully this does the trick
Is this a good question?
