Lets try this can you press and hold the T key when you restart your system. Basically we want to see if the system will go into Target Disk Mode.

Reference: Mac startup key combinations

If it does go into TDM let it run for awhile (an half hour is more than enough). Try going into Diagnostics this time holding the D key.

Let us know what you find!

d mode isn't supported when I run cmd+r recovery mode the Mac stays on for 5 minutes and dies after


now after a few minutes the Mac will turn on for 20 seconds and then turn off again


Did you try the T key?

We're using functions that are in the systems firmware not the recovery.
