comment How to make a bootable USB drive from Install OS X El Capitan.app?
Thanks for the ref. As described in the article, that produces an error "Failed to start erase of disk due to error (-9999,0)." before 10.9. I am trying the "Disk Utility" method in the article.

comment Get out of OS upgrade installer on restart?
What is "recovery HD"? You mean a separate hard drive? How do I boot to it? I would be happy to look at /var/log/install.log to see more about what's happening. Backups are recent (backed up before I started), but it's not my computer, so who knows if they set the right backup paths, etc. Much better to preserve the drive if I can.
