    I decided to delete my current OS and start fresh so I hit CMD + R and deleted the OS.. now when I try to boot up my Macbook into recovery mode to install new OS, this shows up:

    I'm really concerned because now I can't boot back into recovery mode no matter what keys I hold down. I doubt it's a bad drive because it's been working perfectly ever since I've owned it.

    Any advice is appreciated, thanks.

    Which OS?

    Do you have a bootable backup to try? Even a Time Machine backup is bootable. You may need to restore from your backup.

    EDIT: How about trying command+option+r to go directly to internet recovery?

    From the keyboard, it appears to be a rMBP, so command + R should work. If it isn't, I'd take it in to Apple.

    Yeah that eventually worked.. I don't know if I was just hitting it too early or not holding it down long enough but she's working fine now. Thank you!

    It can take a while. I'd suggest holding it until it shows the Apple logo on the screen.
