I believe there are a few kernel extensions running in "my" macOS. On a (probably) unrelated issue, I've been asked to reinstall macOS. Will any extensions be gone if I reinstall macOS (Catalina)? I'll likely use the "online" reinstall way. Or will the kexts stay put?

Asking for a friend.

  • It depends on how you're reinstalling... are you going to format the drive before reinstalling or how are you going to approach it? – jksoegaard Apr 13 '20 at 11:49
  • It would be reinstall as in overwrite without formatting – Jonny Apr 13 '20 at 11:50

The kernel extensions stuck around.

...was what happened. (not reformatting the drive)
