So, my MacBook Pro just died and it appears to be the standard known issue with the graphics card. There seems to be a possible fix by moving some system files around.
However, to do this, I have to disable SIP protection.
To disable SIP, i have to boot up in recovery mode.
MacBook won't boot up in recovery mode - grey screen of death
MacBook can boot up in single user mode however.
There are tales that you can boot in single user recovery mode by holding down command-R-S on boot, but that did not work for me.
What can i do?
