Screen smashed, drive wiped, no recovery partition, how do I proceed?
Hey All! Been a while, hope everyone is doing well!
I have a question that's been driving me nuts: 2020 MacBook Pro, unusable smashed screen, has been wiped and reset via Configurator 2 and does not have recovery partition. Will not boot to external because of default setting in T2 security utility, and target mode won't work for the same reason. I can't get an external display because the initial WIFI prompt for internet recovery mode does not display externally. Laptop is not activation locked.
Without a new screen, does anyone know how to get an OS on it, or get something on an external display that would let me move forward?
Is this a good question?
Ouch! That’s a killer! Other than getting a workable display assembly connected I can’t even see how you can proceed. It the system is iCloud locked then you are really stuck.
Sorry I have no answers for you 😞
@danj Hey Dan, how's it going? Yeah, I figured I'm probably stuck. :-( It was dumb of me to reset it in configurator, I forgot that would leave me without recovery partition
@rdklinc - do you have access to the original owner? At least get them to pull the system from there account. Then getting a (used display) so you can then hand it to Apple with the proof of ownership (copy of the original sales receipt if the owners name is on it get a copy of their ID too).
