Hey guys. I'm having huge problems!!!! Please prepaid to me ASAP!! I need this computer to work otherwise I'm screwed for middle schools ( it needs to be fixed by Monday this week )
My Mac wont boot. Every time it boots it will crash.
This is the boot in verbosboot or however you call it, is on YouTube with this link here:
I recorded it just so you know how long it boots. This is how long it takes for it to hang on the apple logo with a spinning wheel. At the end of the log when it shuts down. The wheel freezes. Then the Mac reboots and says it restarted because of a problem. Or as I call it kernel panic.
Here are the fixes I have tried:
1. Reinstall OS X: tried it. Still nothing changed... :(
2. Reset pram and VRAM: nothing changed :(
3. Safe mode: does the exact same thing. :(
4. Verify the disk in recovery mode with disk utility: says its fine :(
This is a mid 2012 15-inch MacBook Pro
8 core intel processor
8GB installed RAM
500GB hard drive / RPM: Unknown
Age: 6 months from purchase
OS: OS X 10.8.2 / Mountain Lion AKA latest version of OSX
I don't know if it was cause I plugged in a new external hard drive but it does not seems so. But however it has been put to sleep instead of being shut down for about 2 weeks ( why? Cause I'm on holidays. And too lazy to shut it down and than wait 2 min in the morning to play games )
Was perfectly fine before I stop shutting it down...
First of all I did was move the files on the HD onto the external hard drive.
Then I made 2 partitions on the external hard drive.
One partition has the OS.
On the other partition you go into Internet recovery and reinstall OS X on the 2nd partition.
Then I installed a brand new OS X on the HD in the laptop via Internet recover too and then moved the following files in the old backup if the hard drive into the fresh OS X:
Now it won't work yet.
You need to then reopen Internet recovery. And then click on reinstall OS X and do it to the HD on the laptop. Then boom. It's working. All it needs now is a Couple of updates and you ready to work!
To get into Internet recovery:
When the system is off. Press the power button.
As soon as you hear the startup chime or see the screen turn on, hold down te following keys until a gloab appears on the screen:
Command ( apple ) + option ( alt ) + r
Then you let it load the Internet recovery files off the internet and boom you in Internet recovery.
If you read this disscussion and have problems at startup, do this exactly IF. Your problem is mostly completely similar to my problem.
To make sure. Read the whole first post at the top to make sure this is the right solution.
