I am trying to revive my mid-2015 MacBook Pro.
I installed a new SSD, but when I go through the process of Reinstall macOS, I do not get the new SSD as a choice, it seems like I would have to install a 16GB USB flash drive and store it there.
It also does not seem to recognize the old SSD inside the enclosure that is connected to the MacBook.
I would like to follow the guide below
Can Recovery Mode install OS X onto a blank SSD? but how would I do this if all I can do is install the macOS Sierra on a flash drive?
I tried going into the terminal and running
diskutil list, but my SSD is not found among the long list. It is a 480GB SSD and nothing in that list even comes close.
I installed macOS Sierra on a 16GB USB flash drive, but when I follow this guide: https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/install-mac-os-x-using-removable-usb-drive/
But when I click Option + Power it does go into installer, but then when I go to install from the USB flash drive, it tells me I do not have enough space. I don't get it, I already have macOS Sierra on that flash drive, what is it trying to do?
