I have an Early 2013 Macbook Pro Retina 15" with 512GB of SSD storage.
My update to Yosemite 10.5 failed for some reason and I was left with an unbootable system and severe file system errors that prevented the system from booting up (
fsck_hfs -fy fails and
fsck_hfs -ry complains about disk full, although there were about 8% of 500GB left. So I guess the file system is beyond repair.)
So I fired up the rescue system and started "Restore from Time Machine". This worked fine until it erased my disk, which took quite long (about five minutes) and made the fans spin up to full power. Then it displayed a message about it having failed and that I should reboot and try again.
After rebooting, the system does not start any more at all. Not into Recovery (Cmd-R), not into Internet Recovery (Cmd-Alt-R), not after resetting PRAM (Cmd-Alt-P-R) or SMC (Shift-Ctrl-Alt+Power) and surely not when not pressing any boot up keys. I can see the backlight of the screen power up, but that's it. I also now have the bootup chime back, which I turned off before, so I know at least the SMC reset worked.
After about ten seconds when powered on, the fans again spin up to full speed. Nothing else happens (I waited for about ten minutes several times).
Now what? I cannot boot even into rescue mode and I have no idea how to make the machine boot any more at all.
How do I get this machine running again?
