Hey Guys!

Hope to find some help here. So i got a MacBook Pro (2015) from my Workplace and upgraded it to High Sierra. I set everything up and it worked fine untill i did some User configurations. I couldnt access the Settings in preferences because my password was wrong (it wasnt really, but it didnt accept it). So i thought reinstalling would help. I did the reinstall process but got an error at the end of it. “Could not create a reboot partition”. I don’t remember the message exactly. So I have tried several things and hope someone can give me a hint.

- reinstall via cmd + r -> failed
- made a time machine backup from my private MacBook (High Sierra) and put it in my work MacBook -> failed
- recovery from internet -> failed
- external drive with High Sierra installer and booting it from there -> failed

Hope you guys have a clue what to do. Thank you :).

    Forgot to say that I get a crossed circle symbol every time I boot it up.

    What were the User configurations that were made and how?

    As far as I'm aware high Sierra is super buggy and unstable, have you tried installing an older OSX version and gotten the same error?

    When I updated to High Sierra from Sierra, it basically bricked my drive. I wound up doing an online restore using the online startup option and installing High Sierra fresh.
