Mid 2010 MacBook Pro 6,2 Had 10.9.1 installed on an SSD drive which failed. Got a replacement drive (same brand, model) Have a USB bootable thumb drive with 10.9.0 installation files on it Mac boots from USB and install starts It sees the new drive (formatted Mac OS Extended Journaled) I set the date via Terminal so that isn't the issue Goes through the preparing to install routine, and then eventually fails with the following error:
An error occurred while preparing the installation. Try running this application again.
Saw previous posts which said date was incorrect; but date has been set correctly. I've confirmed the files exist on the USB drive. After it fails and I go to Disk Utility, the SSD drive is suddenly not visible. Anyone have a clue?
