    My iMac pro is booting in mirrored mode when I don't even have that selected. If I do command + F1 it shows the extended desktop mode which is how it should be but this is only a temporary fix. I'm using a thunderbolt 3 to HDMI adapter for my 1080p television. I have reset PRAM and SMC to no...

This caused that user to no longer show up on the list on the login screen, though it could still log in by selecting "other…" and typing...

    Resolved Create login screen message on a machine running FileVault?

    I know that it is possible to create a lock screen message on a machine that is running FileVault, but is it possible to create a login screen message? It seems that this might be tricky since the boot process does not really even begin until a password is entered. Any thoughts?
