re installing OSX problems
Does anyone know why its becoming nearly impossible to do fresh installs of OS-X on older Mac Systems.
I have had a collection of various versions of OS-X installs set up on USB sticks. Have been using them with no bother for the past 5 + years. In the last 6-12 months they have all stopped working.
When I try to re-burn them and use them the Mac system is saying the install has become corrupt.
The current issue is with a customers MacBook Pro, the 500GB mechanical HDD has died. Have fitted a 480GB SSD and tried using the internet recovery to install Mountain Lion.
After formatting the drive and starting the install i get a timer stating its going to take -2,393,938,938 and 8 minutes. After about 2mins it pops up saying Can’t download the additional components needed to install Mac OS-X. I have tried it with a standard mechanical HDD as well as the SSD.
Is this a good question?
