Disk Utility doesn't allow me to erase/reformat my hard drive disk
I am running Macbook Pro (Late 2011) on Sierra osX.
First I repartitioned my HD into single partition(I had Bootcamp). After that I went to encrypt my HD using FileVault and it got stuck for days at around 60%. I think the problem might be something with repartitioning the HD but I see others have problem with encryption as well.
I decided to reformat my HD to make a clean install(I have backed up the system with Time machine) after Disk Utility have failed to repair the disk.
Now I can not even reformat the HD using Disk Utility from CMD+R mode.
In Disk Utilty I see under Internal “Apple HDD HTS547575A9E384 Media” under which is greyed out my “Macintosh HD”. on Disk Images I see “Apple disk Image Media” which is 2.01 GB and has under it “OS X Base System”(1.29 GB) with option to eject which does not work. I tried to repair or erase “Apple HDD HTS547575A9E384 Media” but it does not work. When erasing it says “Erase process has failed” with details saying “Couldn’t unmount disk - Operation failed”.
What should I do?
Either make the encryption in FileVault to continue the progress which didn’t work after reading about it and trying things… or to erase the HD and start a new install from my Time Machine backup. Any help is most welcome!
