Potential errors whilst installing Sitecore 9x

Error 1-

Install-SitecoreConfiguration : Cannot validate argument on parameter ‘Signer’. The “$_.HasPrivateKey -eq $true”

sc9xerror1

In this case check the modules installed and remove SIF 2.0.0

Get-Module SitecoreInstallFramework -ListAvailable

sc9xerror2

Get-InstalledModule -Name “SitecoreInstallFramework” -RequiredVersion 2.0.0 | Uninstall-Module

C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\SitecoreInstallFramework

In case if this command throws errors not having access or is used by any other process, its worth giving to try to close the existing PowerShell window and open a new one.

Error 2 –

Install-SitecoreConfiguration : Cannot process argument transformation on parameter ‘Signer’. Cannot convert the “System.Object[]” value of type “System.Object[]” to type “System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.X509Certificate2”.
