Possible to install kext via EFI Terminal?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I managed to delete a required kext. Now my Osx will no longer boot. It seems, I can't even boot it with a USB stick anymore. When deleting other (non required) kexts, that caused KP, I could always boot into OSX via the USB Stick - but not this time.


I tried to boot into EFI Shell via clover - which works well. I can even see the kext - which I saved to another location on the same hdd (fs1:).


When I try to copy it into S/L/E, I get an error saying, that I have no access to write to this folder.


Is it somehow possible to do what I want (copying the kext into S/L/E) from EFI Shell?


If not - is there any other possibility? Or must I reinstall?


Thanks for your help in advise.

ok... several hours later....


I connected my hard drive to a VM running osx and was able to copy back the missing kext. Now, I am back up and running.


Best regards
