Re: Reinstalling Mac Os failed on M1 Macbook Pro

Hi Franz, I had exactly the same problem I migrated from my previous MacBook but had an issue which resulted in me deciding to erase and reinstall the MacOS on my M1 MacBook Air but it failed with the same error message you got. I tried asking the question on forums but the answers were either useless or not relevant as the M1 is too new.

In the end I contacted Apple Support by the Chat system and after explaining the problem I got put through to a Tier 2 support person in California (I’m in the UK and it was 10pm). It took 2 hours of on-line chat using my iMac and eventually after creating a bootable install of BigSur and using Terminal the MacBook Air was back up and running.

Remember you get 90 days of Apple Support don’t waste time on forums just call Apple they will get you going again.
