MacBook can't complete installation of El Capitan without battery?
I have a 15" MacBook Pro Core i7 A1286 (mid 2012)
I'm unable to complete the installation of El Capitan. I only have the HD & RAM memory installed (no battery).
Other Mac OS-X Versions are installing OK (even Windows). But, when I try to upgrade to El Capitan it never finishes the update. Also, it will not install via USB thumb drive.
I have tried everything!
I wonder is the problem I don't have the battery installed?
Is dit een goede vraag?
Lets be careful here! ALL CAPITAL LETTERS IMPLIES ONE IS YELLING !!
We talk with indoor voices here ;-} Please use mix/lower case.
It also makes it hard to understand what you're trying to say. Hopefully my edits to your question reflect what you want to say.
Excuse me, I am using the translator!
My MacBook does not finish the installation of El Capitan.
The equipment is no battery, this may be causing the problem?
Where do you live? Its always fun to find out. No problems! Translators can sometimes mess things up.
I don't think the battery is the issue here. Did you follow my steps in my answer below? I think you encountered a needed firmware update and just didn't give it enough time to update.
I have similar problems. I am doing a clean install and I get further in the process by setting the time and date by opening Terminal and enter: ntpdate -u time.apple.com. My other problems are that I get errors like ”Can’t find availble packages to install”! I am having a Macbook Pro Mid 2009 13” and I am trying to make a clean install of High Sierra + having a battery that wont charge anymore.
