I have a 13 inch MacBook Pro Mid 2014. I have been struggling with installation process since last night. At first, I started my Mac by pressing Option + Command + R and Power button so that I opened it with internet recovery mode. After that, I cleared my disk space and tried to install macOS Big Sur. But just before selecting my disk where I am going to install, it shows an error which says "Installation could not be completed." I tried to install the os which comes with Mid-2014 and tried to update it but it didn't work either.

When I look at logs with Command + L, it says OSISPredicateUpdateProduct: Incompatible Apps List: No product found

  • apple.stackexchange.com/questions/407179/… have a look there. Do you also get this error? Try installing macOS Big Sur with a installer medium like a USB drive or SD card (discussions.apple.com/thread/252057791). There have been multiple reports of Internet recovery failing with macOS Big Sur. I can confirm that the USB installer method worked for me

  • When the dialogue is present, open the installation log ('command+L'), and select "show all logs" in detail level. Paste the output here.
