    So,

    I've sold my old iMac and I've wiped the operating system, and when I go to reinstall Mac OS after signing in with my Apple ID it keeps saying connection failed.


    Any suggestions?

    This is not clear; on WHICH machine are you (re?)installing what exactly and why?
    Re-installing a fresh machine??? Installing a backup of your old machine???
    ;JOOP!

    Okay...so, you sold your old iMac, wiped it cleaned to install new OS...well, before you wiped it, you forgot to enter the pass key for "finding my mac"...am I on the right track?

    are you trying to setup to sell it if so why not just skip and let new owner do it /if not, is it connected to the internet as what it's saying. it best connected using ethernet when setting up.

    And exactly how old is old?
    Maybe the operating system you are trying to install is not suitable for the 'old' iMac.
