I've been trying to upgrade from OS X Mountain Lion to OS X Mavericks, but the setup fails after a few minutes with the message that it can not create the recovery system. The relevant installer log items are listed here:
Oct 24 11:47:44 192.168.2.1 OSInstaller: Recovery system creation failed with error -69866 (Couldn't complete copy) Oct 24 11:47:45 192.168.2.1 OSInstaller: Install failed: OS X can’t be installed on the disk Athena, because a recovery system can’t be created. Visit www.apple.com/support/no-recovery to learn more. Oct 24 11:47:46 192.168.2.1 OSInstaller: Reverted bless to disk Athena
The complete log is uploaded as a Gist.
When I try to boot in to the existing Recovery environment, by holding Cmd+R on boot, I get booted in to the Internet Recovery. Also, I have checked if the Recovery partition is missing, which it isn't. This is the output of
/dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *121.3 GB disk0 1: EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_HFS Athena 119.5 GB disk0s2 3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s3
When holding Opt at boot, the Recovery HD does not appear as an option.
What can I do to fix this problem and to upgrade to Mavericks? Thanks!
