Try force reboot, with “Option” key, it has options

  2. Mac OS X Install
  3. Max OS X

  1. Recovery Mode, doesn’t work
  2. Network Recovery Mode, doesn’t work
  3. Hardware test, seems check passed.
  4. CMD+v, verbose mode, it works.

Found kind of solution like this, doesn’t work.

Finally try convert dmg to iso, and burn it with “dd”

hdiutil convert InstallMacOSX.dmg -format UDTO -o InstallMacOSX.iso
