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!
