I was convinced into making this over buying a Macbook Air and was told about how easy it was, despite me knowing NOTHING about computers. I was repeatedly reassured it was so simple, and yet here I am, frustrated once again.
Im following the guide on Gizmodo. Everything was going well up until the point of installation. It installs and at the very end I get "Install Failed. MAC OS X could not be installed on your computer.. etc etc" I've spent hours googling and although I can see others have had this problem I do not understand the answers or simply can't find them. Im very frustrated at this point because I followed the guide exactly.
I have read that it "doesnt matter" and "its normal" on another blog, but if that is the case what is the next step to take to get it to work?
Please make any suggestions as basic as possible, I do not understand computer lingo and do not know how to do much.
This is what I bought
