I am trying to boot into recovery mode on a Mac Pro with 10.11.1.
I have a firmware password set. When I boot into the boot menu (alt key), I can click on the password textfield and type the password and click on the round button next to it to proceed to the boot menu.
However, when I try to boot into recovery mode with cmd-r, the mouse doesn't react and, why?, the password textfield doesn't have focus. I cannot type the password.
How can I boot into recovery mode without being confronted with this dilemma?
