Sadly it does not solve my problem.
What I see when I try to boot is a repeat of the message: opendirectoryd Too many corpses being created.
Running in single-user and then starting the
launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.opendirectoryd.plist
shows the segmentation faults for opendirectoryd.
- Booting in Safe mode does not help.
- Removing the kernel extension files does not help.
- Removing the actual /usr/libexec/opendirectoryd causes the boot sequence to stop at 'waiting for DSMOS' and not move beyond that point.
- Clearing the NVRAM does not help.
- Re-installing the High Sierra does not help the issue is there again.
This is a clean install I arrived at this point by:
- erase the harddisk(because the upgrade from Mavrick to High Sierra failed during High Sierra installation)
- Install Lion
- Upgrade to El Capitain
- Upgrade to High Sierra
- It was up and running at this point, but the next morning it has the issue of "Too many corpses being created." during boot.
