- MacBook Pro7,1
- 2TB Crucial SSD
- High Sierra
- fsroot count invalid
I have a MacBook Pro7,1 (13" Mid-2010). I recently replaced the 512GB hard drive with a 2TB SSD from Crucial memory. I'm trying to clean install High Sierra. Every time I erase the SSD and reinstall the OS from internet recovery, at some point in the process the SSD ends up with an invalid fsroot count. I have read a whole bunch of different articles and threads where people are getting this error, and everyone's issue seems to resolve after (at worst) wiping the drive and reinstalling. I am not so lucky.
As I see it, this is an exhaustive list of the possible causes:
- Faulty SSD
- Faulty SATA ribbon
- Faulty motherboard/logic board
- Bug in Apple's installer / Disk Utility (or incompatibility with my hardware configuration)
- Some hacker creep is intercepting and corrupting Apple's software every time I boot into internet recovery mode.
Is there any factor for which I am failing to account here?
What seems most likely from that list?
Thank you for any help!
