Uninitialized SSD, error 69760 when I try to erase the SSD on macOS Catalina install

Recommended Posts

I tried to install macOS Catalina olarila. All the time I get this error: ,, Unable to write to the last block of the device (-69760) when I want to erase the ssd. 

I also tried to erase with the format APFS and ExFAT and I got the same error.

I put the ssd to windows computer and convert to GTP with exFAT, nothing.

I tried to format the SSD from the mac terminal and nothing again.

I tried First Aid from Disk Utility and nothing again.

What should I try to do?

I tried another macOS Catalina version ( the old one ) and I got the same problem. When I open the Catalina install and the black screen with white code text appear, I saw some ,, disk1 I/O error ( maybe this information can help, i put 2 photos in this link: https://imgur.com/a/mmTUAUe ). Or maybe I forgot to disable or enable something in BIOS.

I went through this problem in my hackntosh, I solved it using an external program to erase the SSD, I used acronis true image 2017, choose the option to add a new disk, it erases everything first and very quickly, then it asks to format, choose the NTFS / GUI option, then install MAC OS and use the erase option in Disk Utility / APFS / GUI.

I tried right now this program. still nothing. maybe I did something wrong but I don't think so. Here are some pictures: https://imgur.com/a/BVnSMtq

Meanwhile, I installed macOS Catalina on a usb drive stick. yeah.. works but very slow. Now my question is why the macOS drive utility can format a usb stick with apfs but an ssd can't format.

congratulations, if you are still having problems, try installing it on a traditional hard drive to find out if you have a problem with the catalina image on your flash drive
