My SSD stopped mounting by itself on boot. So I booted into Single User mode, ran
/sbin/mount/ -uw / and
exit and it got mounted and I could boot from the SSD. However, after booting all I see is the Guest user and not the admin user.
However, I have a TM backup and would like to simple erase the entire disk and restore. The issue is I can't erase the disk in Recovery Mode using Disk Utility as it does not get mounted automatically.
What would be the best approach?
