I installed a new SSD (Transcend JetDrive 850) on my MacBook Air 7,1. I was starting the internet recovery using Option-R, and Disk Utility was not detecting my new SSD. When I’m doing an internet recovery with Option-Command-R, Disk Utility is finding my new SSD but I’m not able to either recover the data from Time Machine, neither install Mojave.

When I’m running Internet recovery using Option-R, the proposed OS is El Capitan but I’m not able to install the OS because my SSD is not found,but I was able to install it on USB flash drive.

I’m wondering if the only solution to this problem is to install this new ssd in an USB enclosure, run internet recovery with Option-R, install El Capitan on it, the same way I did on my USB drive and then reinstall the ssd in the Mac...

Thanks for your help
