El Capitan install error: OS X could not be installed on your computer #
Among the least helpful error messages I've come across:
It should read "Fix the time and date before installing" or something like that. Here's how to resolve while booted from the install disk:
OS X could not be installed on your computer
No packages were eligible for install. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance.
Quit the installer to restart your computer and try again.
- Utilities > Terminal
- Fix the date and time, e.g., date 101407002015 (i.e., Oct 14, 07:00 2015)
- Click Restart (sadly, there's no other option to go back and try again)
