Adding more detail: This is late 2012 iMac (13,2) with 128GB original internal NVMe but with new Samsung EVO 860 1TB SSD. I used to be able to talk to it via target disk mode (where I erased drives) but no longer can access vis TDM. I now have tried both 10.13.6 and 10.14.5 ext SSD to boot (or recovery) (or install), every thing hangs on UI process startup. Hope EFI Rom mismatch rather than real hw error. Ran h.Sierra w/ new hw before Mojave upgrade killed it. Maybe a downgrade from 283.0.0.0.0 EFI Firmware could help but people have said impossible to downgrade. I can only get to Single User Mode - anything else involves UI Process start then hang in Windows Server - wondering if to do with Ambient Light Sensor - maybe I botched cable hookup.

Here is log:

  • Maybe I have not connected display correctly when putting Mac back together? Mention of WindowServer and AmbientLight sensor? – Billzabub May 26 at 19:23
  • You will need to add that info to the original question along with any other changes you have made recently. Also need the model of Mac you have. Bet detailed and even overly complete. More info is better info, without it we are stuck with only what you write and that is often not enough. – Steve Chambers May 26 at 19:30
  • I tried to put that in the original question and it complained that it thought it was spam. Sorry I'm a newbie here so don't know how to avoid my the spam filter. This is late 2012 iMac with 128GB original internal NVMe but with new Samsung EVO 860 1TB SSD. I used to be able to talk to it via target disk mode (where I erased drives) but no longer can access vis TDM. I now have tried both 10.13.6 and 10.14.5 ext SSD to boot (or recovery) (or install), every thing hangs on UI process startup. Hope EFI Rom mismatch rather than real hw error. Ran h.Sierra w/ new hw before Mojave upgrade killed it – Billzabub May 27 at 7:34
  • Update from today. Internal drives work - but can't see with my macbook Air. No new ROM available. Can't downgrade. Shop thinks logic board failure :( See apple.stackexchange.com/q/361035/333467 – Billzabub Jun 1 at 5:56
