Install an external drive operating system


Recommended Posts


I have an IMAC that probably went to the internal hard drive and the operating system does not boot. I bought an external drive to install operating software on macOS Mojave. As I read in the manuals I connected the drive to the computer I pressed CMD + R and turned on the computer I selected the external drive and formatted it with "MAC OS extended (documented)" schema "GUID partition map" Then I tried to install the operating software and after a few minutes it Write me the message "An internal error occurred while checking the files on the volume prior to conversion to APFS" I'm stuck and would love to help

Attached is a picture of the error

This is IMAC mid2014 21.5 and WD 1TB hard disk model WDBYNNOO1OBBK-WESN

Thanks for the helpers
