Hi, everyone. This morning I downloaded the update to El Capitan hoping for some bug fixes, but now I'm unable to boot up my computer. Here's the issue and what I've tried: Download iOS - successful Install iOS (black screen with apple logo) - Successful Boot up computer (gray screen with my name/photo) - Failure; stays stuck around 75% loaded After a lot of googling, it sounded like the problem was some .kext files, but I'm unable to delete them. I've booted up holding shift, command+r, and command+control+r+p. The only options I'm given are restore from backup (I would rather not do this because my last backup was 3 weeks ago), reinstall iOS (I've done this already), get help online, and disk utility. I've run first aid in disk utility but nothing really needed repairing, it seems. What I've read says that I need to get into Finder, but I don't know how to from where I am. My harddrive is also encrypted (thanks, work) if that changes anything. I am able to get into the terminal and found instructions for deleting kext files that way, but I'm getting a message that the code I type in "is a directory." Any suggestions? I may be completely off-base with the kext thing, but that's the only solution I was able to find.
