Do you have access to another Mac system to create a bootable macOS installer so you can run Disk Utility to rebuild your system.

Yeah, have a macbook pro mid 2012 on ventura


Also, no combinations work and already tried the ventura installer on mid 2012 MBP (USB works fine installed macos with it before) and also tried it on the iMac but only boots to apple logo


@danial21870 - Did you use the Option key Startup command to select which drive to boot from?

Reference: Mac startup key combinations

If that failed are you even able to enter into diagnostics using the D key?


Nope. Still does nothing


@danial21870 - Well that sucks! Somehow you messed up your systems firmware is my best guess.

Did you alter anything internally? Switch of the drives or repasted the CPU.
