    At first, I tried to upgrade and the upgrade failed to the point of rendering the system useless. I then decided to reformat the drive using disk utility and try a clean install. I then got this error and I'm stuck and have no clue what to do now:

    "The installer can't extract files from the package for BaseSystem. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance." ​

    I have never encountered anything like this before. Any tips?
