Recovery Mode no access

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

tried all the commands to try to get into recovery mode

No luck  , can some one help me ?

Tried command + r (no luck)

i need to open Terminal in recovery mode and run "csrutil disable".    i have tried to do this in the operating system with No Success (El capitan,  2008,  mac pro quad core   this is not a Hackintosh) this command seems to be only workable in RECOVERY MODE

 

Thanks

To see if you indeed have a recovery partition:
diskutil list in terminal. Look for a 650mb partition.
Try restarting but hold down the option key to see if it shows up.

Is the keyboard plugged into the Mac Pro not a hub? I am assuming its a Tower.

diskutil should look like this

Louiss-iMac:~ lcioccio$ diskutil list

/dev/disk0 (internal, physical):
   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
   0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *121.3 GB   disk0
   1:                        EFI EFI                     209.7 MB   disk0s1
   2:          Apple_CoreStorage Macintosh_HD            121.0 GB   disk0s2
   3:                 Apple_Boot Boot OS X               134.2 MB   disk0s3
 
/dev/disk1 (internal, physical):
   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
   0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *3.0 TB     disk1
   1:                        EFI EFI                     209.7 MB   disk1s1
   2:          Apple_CoreStorage Macintosh_HD            3.0 TB     disk1s2
   3:                 Apple_Boot Recovery HD             650.0 MB   disk1s3
 
/dev/disk2 (internal, virtual):
   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
   0:                  Apple_HFS Macintosh_HD           +3.1 TB     disk2
 
Item 3 /dev/disk1 (internal, physical): is what your looking for.

Thanks did as you said , and i got this :-

 

/dev/disk0 (internal, physical):
   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
   0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *500.1 GB   disk0
   1:                        EFI EFI                     209.7 MB   disk0s1
   2:                  Apple_HFS Mac HD                  499.8 GB   disk0s2
Macs-Mac-Pro:~ macpro$

 

what can i do to fix this ?

Looks like i have no Recovery Partition on the drive 

1) if i made a fresh installation how could i make sure that it also installs a recovery partition ?

2) i have an old 160 hard drive which i can test with the new installation.

 

ive never installed on a real mac before, but if i download an image of EL-CAPITAN and place it on a usb , will i be able to install EL-Capitan from usb  ?

 

Thanks for your help

Maybe try Carbon copy Cloner app and it gives the option to create a recovery partition at the end of the copy.   Copy to the test drive to test it.
