Error when installing Big Sur on laptop: "The update cannot be installed on this computer"

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to install Big Sur on my laptop, but this error appears when trying to select the disk for installation.

My PC Settings:

Processor: i7 3630QM Ivy Bridge
Ram: 8gb DDR3
Notebook Model: Samsung NP500P4C-AD3BR

I attached the image of the error and my smbios.

Error: "The update cannot be installed on this computer"

Got it with monterey. Even with securebootmodel disabled and -no_compat_check 

Now got me thinking whats changed from big sur that worked ...  maybe change from imac14,4 to one newer? Although I thought the boot arg would fix it?

Now run macmini7,1 to fix .... I thought wrong obviously!
