I got a virus on my MacBook so I erased the hard drive. I go to reinstall the Operating System and when it's just about finished it says
"Could not create a preboot Volume for APFS install"
any easy fixes for this?

Thank You Tech Guy!

Assuming you have a registered MacBook, try this. Boot into Recovery mode. Now do a fresh install using the Apple servers.

Thanks BB. So I hit the minus key for the Main Hard Drive and then went into Internet recovery and added a new main hard drive myself. I'm typing this post on my cleaned out MacBook.
Thank you anyway. :)
