    Easy way to create a Recovery Partition?

    Thanks to all readers of this post. To install Mojave in my MP 6.1 and keep HFS+, I cloned my High Sierra to an external drive and upgraded it to Mojave which made it APFS. I intended to erase the inner drive (always keeping HFS+) and clone back with CCC the Mojave. However I see no Mojave...

    Mojave on new Mini - can't startup from recovery partition

    I've just used T/Machine to restore to my new Mini - and it works fine EXCEPT that I can't boot from the recovery partition. I use CCC as well as T/Machine, and CCC alerted me to the fact that I would need to grant access (via the recovery partition procedure) to allow me to boot from a CCC...

    Can't access Recovery after 5,1 upgraded to 10.14.5

    So, this is weird... my 2010 cMP 5,1 was running fine on 10.14.4 and firmware 140.0.0.0.0 until last night. Last night I finally undertook the firmware update process to 144.0.0.0.0 and the install of the full 10.14.5, no problems. At the conclusion of it all, I booted my Mac up normally and...

    Possible to create a dual boot drive with Yosemite and High Sierra?

    I'm running Yosemite and hope to stay with it as long as possible. However, I know at some point I'll have to move forward, and I haven't downloaded any interim versions of macOS, so I'm thinking I'd better get High Sierra before things get too nuts and my hardware isn't supported anymore. I'm...

    Spontaneous Recovery mount

    Hello, since 10.14.1 my TimeCapsule gave up (coincidence I presume), so I dropped TimeMachine backup and started to use some other utility. During TM backups I had noticed a short mount and umount of /Volumes/Recovery, but since then, without TM activity, it appears to mount at random. I umount...

    Every other time I boot MP goes to recovery partition

    I've got a 3,1 Mac Pro running 10.10.5, it started having problems with Photoshop crashing and unexpected restarts and about every other time it is restarted it fails to mount the boot drive and boots into recovery mode. Using disk utility it doesn't seem to have any issue with permission or...

    Sierra on Mid-2009 MacBook Pro, Tested, Working, Recovery Partition Fails

    Hello, I got everything up and running on a Mid-2009 Macbook Pro, 3.06 Ghz w/ 8 GB RAM and the Nvidia 9400/9600m card. I used Dosdude's method and only injected the 2 default kexts (boot.plist and legacy USB options) The only problem is that the recovery partition is giving me the grey circle...
