    IMG_5386.JPG hi,

    I'm having issues when upgrading my MacBook Pro. Whenever I try to install a new OS it fails (think I'm still on yoshimite now?) been trying to repair the disk but keep getting this message (photo attached). Any ideas of what to do?

    Also Iv clicked repair just says same
    Thing again!

    Thanks!

    Read what it says four lines up from the bottom: "...was found corrupt and can not be repaired." The solution is to erase and reinstall the OS. I hope you have a backup.

    Did you erase the HDD, or did you just reinstall the OS?

    If you did not erase, this is exactly the result I'd expect you'd get. The previous error told us that the HDD must be erased and reformatted. The OS installer also tests the disk, to make sure the installation will be successful. If the previous problem was not fixed, then the installation would not be successful.

    If you successfully erased and reformatted, then attempted reinstall, then there's likely something wrong with the physical HDD.

    Did you just Erase and then restart the Mac? Again, exactly what we would expect. That icon tells us that it can't find a bootable operating system.

    Boot back into Recovery, and Reinstall.
