OS X Lion Install Failed!

Posted in Apple on the July 21st, 2011

Alligator tried to get his hands on OS X Lion as soon as it was released yesterday but ran into a roadblock while installing OS X Lion on his MBP. After waiting an hour for the download to finish from the app store the installation finally started. After a couple of minutes the computer restarted and Alligator saw a progress bar saying 35 minutes remaining and was really excited to be in OS X Lion heaven soon.
But Alligator was in for a surprise when after a couple of a minutes there was a big yellow exclamation mark saying “Install Failed”. The detailed error message stated

Max OS X can’t be installed on the disk iMac, because a recovery system can’t be created. Visit to learn more.
