    I just got this machine secondhand for a family member, replaced the old drive with an SSD and reinstalled High Sierra from a USB drive created using createinstallmedia. The image below shows what I get after it reboots upon completing the installation. Does anyone know what this means or a have a solution? Thanks.

    Hmmm... Looks like its starting in Single User Mode, or maybe Verbose. Does it get past this screen at all or just stay there?
