We are trying to update a lab of computers to 10.7.3. These computers are partitioned 50/50 with a 10.6.8 partition and and a Windows XP partition. We are getting the following error when trying to run the update:
*Mac OSX could not be installed on your computer
Mac OS X can't be installed on the disk Macintosh HD, because a recovery system can't be created.*
Wondering if anyone else has run into this problem and if so how did you get around it??
We have tried the install both through SelfService and by just running the install straight from the computer.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for the help that worked great. Here the the command we used in case anyone is wondering.
diskutil resizeVolume disk0s2 76G JHFS+ Restore 1G
We have a 77G Mac Partitions about with Journaled HFS+.
Then after it was done installing we ran
diskutil mergePartitions JHFS+ "Macintosh HD" disk0s2 disk0s3
to erase the recovery partition so that boot camp will work again.
