Installer erring with bad quotes

I have the installer and the image in the same directory (google drive as a local sync) and I am getting this error:
(some snipping of log file)

Not sure what to edit to clear this error.
Thanks!

What version of MacOS?
Can you try run it outside of the Google Drive directory?

#3

Mac OS 10.14.5
I found BelenaEtcher and that seems to have worked.
I was getting a similar error on my Windows surface laptop but I couldn’t find the log files… :smiley:

I’ll try again with the software re-located to my personal directory and report back

#4

Please do — it might be a simple fix

after moving it to my home directory and running it, it looks like it wrote the image, but couldn’t mount it?

I’ll check it out.

I tried this - took out the custom networking IP settings, thinking that if I set the network options to default, it won’t have to re-mount the drive. there are other pre-seeds that happen. :smiley:

I started using my windows surface machine to write the images, and it worked without issue. from the google drive and everything.
