Boot Recovery partition from USB

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

With rEFInd I can create USB GPT disk, install rEFInd to EFI partition, copy GUID folder from Mac Recovery partition to HSF+ partition on USB & boot to it just fine (it recognizes Recovery on USB in the bottom row and boots perfectly)

It only needs showtools apple_recovery in its config


I could not get Clover to recognize such Recovery on USB


Any idea why?

Why not?


rEFInd works fine on real Mac hardware, it does work itself on Hack, but ofcourse the Recovery will not fully boot (hence the need for Clover, if wanted to utilize it on Hack)


On real Mac, I do not even need rEFInd, because I can make Recovery USB with ie BDU


But it is not as neat as a single folder copy!
