Fix a Disk Utility error showing 'No Valid Packages'
Authored by: skapplin on Mar 19, '07 09:09:22AM

Note that what you copied to the Receipts folder is the entire installer. The actual receipt does not contain the files and applications that have been stripped out of the package. The resulting receipt is a much smaller file.

You've actually copied the entire installer package complete with the entire OS X base system files. This is exactly why Apple's recommendation is to reinstall.

Obviously an easier and the better solution is to get a copy of the BaseSystem.pkg receipt file from another computer.

in order to avoid problems. (Same CPU architecture, too—that is, don't mix PPC with Intel.)
