Mac Recovery OS Reinstall Error - Failed to mount outer dmg
My iMac hard drive went bad (confirmed by apple store test) so I ordered the 500 GB SATA SSD drive kit from iFixit. Install went great and now stuck on trying to install Mac OS Sierra on the new drive. It runs for ~5 mins and then states error occurred. When I view the install log the last two lines I see are:
: Couldn't mount base system dmg! (error code 110)
: Failed to mount outer dmg
In Disk Utility I see the OS X Base System disk image as well as Apple SSD internal media. I've run First Aid on all entries in disk utility. Any other suggestions?
