Recovery options not working/white screen?
Okay, so I have a used Macbook pro and It has a windows installation only. I am trying to reinstall MacOS back and pretty much get it to factory settings.
I have tried:
CMD + R recovery: globe loads, apple logo with spinning wheel, then black screen and white screen after.
CMD-Option-R: globe loads, Apple logo loads, grey screen.
With options, loading with high sierra bootable USB ends up with white screen after apple logo loads.
Option-D works and goes to the testing screen.
So am i looking at hardware problems or is there some possible fix that I haven’t been able to find? The Windows Installation seems to work fine. Haven’t messed with it too much. Or should I try with another OS to try to reinstall?
As an Update: reformatted the drive and installed sierra on the new drive. (Although I used a macbook air to do so). Now, the mac is basically in a boot loop and then later on gets stuck halfway through the apple logo. Hard drive works well to boot the air with though.
Is this a good question?
