I have been given a MacBook Pro 15" Core2Duo A1286 with corrupted HDD structure. I would like to reinstall MacOS X but when I try to use Disk Utility to reinstall it, it tells me I am unable to install from its recovery partition. (I was able to erase the HDD).
Internet recovery launched with CmdOptR fails to install Sierra with an error
How might I create a bootable installer on a USB flashdrive from Linux Mint or from Windows 7 or 10? Unable to find how after creating an Apple Store account, the MacVerse is totally foreign to me.
