I tried to install the OS X 10.11 GM to my 2012 Macbook Air, and it crashed during the install. I tried to go into recovery mode to reinstall OS X, but once I put in my Wifi password and press the install button it crashes and reboots.
Is there some way to reinstall OS X short of taking it to an Apple Store? The nearest store is about a 3 hour drive away, so if I can do this from home I'd prefer that.
The Macbook Air of course doesn't have a disc drive, but I know in the past with Lion you could get a USB stick from Apple to upgrade the OS. I'm wondering if I could either get a USB from Apple or make my own?
As a last resort is it possible to ship my Macbook to Apple to be repaired?
