My computer crashed while editing a video with Final Cut. I have been unable to boot up since then - the OS crashes immediately after typing my password at the login screen and reboots.
I’ve been going into Recovery Mode now, trying to perform any kind of repair. Unfortunately, whether I mount my APFS volume via Disk Utility or using the Terminal’s ‘diskutil APFS unlockVolume’, I can get it to mount successfully, but then my computer reboots immediately before I am able to perform First Aid or run a ‘fsck_apfs’ command.
I know the simple solution is to reformat and reinstall my OS. For obvious reasons, I’d like to repair things if at all possible before resorting to that.
Is there a different approach I can use to get my drive mounted and attempt a repair, without the machine restarting right away?
