I am getting the folder with question mark issue in my 2014 Macbook Air (Catalina) and I need to boot into Recovery Mode.
Unfortunately my MBA's keyboard already had issues beforehand, and some of the keys including R doesn't work (I normally just use external keyboards).
I can't go to Recovery Mode using my wireless BT keyboard. I also tried plugging in my mechanical keyboard via USB (Anne Pro 2) but CMD+R still doesn't register on boot.
Would there be other ways of booting into Recovery Mode other than CMD+R? Should I try and use other cheaper USB keyboards?
Or is there another way to fix the blinking question mark problem? (I think I messed it up after erasing a disk and restarting right away without re-installing macOS).
Any pointers would be appreciated, thank you!
