El Capitan already installed

Question

El Capitan already installed

Hey, I have been trying to do a fresh install of El Cap, 10.11, and just after you select the language is states "OS X could not be installed on your computer", "OS X El Capitan is already installed on the Mac".........

It's a clean formatted SSD, how is this possible ???

A little late, but just in case you (or someone else) are still searching for a solution:

If you are using chameleon,  copy your smbios.plist from your /Extra folder of your current Os X installation to the /Extra folder of your El Capitan installation Usb. It will solve the 'already installed' error and you will be able to install.
