I want to make a clean OS X Mavericks install on a MacBook Pro 2008 (A1278). I don't have the installation disc anymore.
Because the OS is already wiped out, I can only try (a) Recovery, (b) internet recovery or (c) bootable USB stick.
(a) and (b) throw an error message ("This is not a supported method of installing the operating system; please run install OS X Mavericks app....").
Because the OS is already wiped out I could not download Mavericks app from the app store. Therefore I got an bootable install image from the web (whick seems to be clean and official). When preparing the intallation it stucks for hours with "one second left" (until reboot) and the throws an error message "during preparation of the installation an error occured" (roughly translated). The same problem occured with 3 other bootable install images (all looking clean, from different internet sources). Here is the last installation log.
Can someone help me?
