Yesterday my MacBook Pro 15" Retina stopped booting. I see the Apple logo and a progress bar which gets stuck at about 10%.
What I tried so far:
- Booting in recovery mode - same, progress bar stuck at 10%
- Booting in internet recovery - loads until a grey screen with the Apple logo. Nothing happens after that
- Booting in single-user mode and repair disk with fsck - did that, didn't help
- Booting in safe mode - works, I verified and repaired the disk with Disk Utility but the problem persists
- Booting in verbose mode to see where the process gets stuck - booting proccess stops at various points each time. I tried googling all these steps where it get stuck but I always end up in hackintosh boards and blogs (OSX on PC's)
- Creating a bootable USB disk (Recovery USB) and it also get stuck at the 10% progress bar
I Was able to create a Time Machine backup in safe mode. So data loss isn't really the problem here. At this point i would wipe the disk and reinstall Yosemite if necessary. But without getting into the recovery HD I don't know how.
I do not have a second machine to connect to the MacBook so Target Mode isn't an option for me.
EDIT 1: After removing everything from startup the problem still persists.
EDIT 2: starting in verbose mode i now see kernel panic
panic(cpu 2 caller) "Spinlock acquisition timed out" Kernel extension in backtrace: com.apple.kec.pthread BSD process name corresponding to current htread: taskgated
EDIT 3: So booting in verbose over and over again it seems like booting stops alway either at kernel panic mentioned in EDIT 2, or at
IOBluetoothcontroller - start - loaded
or a new kernel panic that appears sometimes
"TLB invalidation timeout" "CPU(s) failed repond to interrupts, unresponsive CPU bitmam: 0x53, NMIPI acks: orgi: 0x0, now: 0x0"@7SourceCache/xnu/xnu-2782.1.97/osfmk/x86_64/pmap.c:247" BSD proccess name corresponding to current thread: configd
EDIT 4: Found an App called Etre check which seems to be used in the Apple support community. I post the output here.
