I see that the instructions for booting into Recovery Mode is to press ⌘ CommandR after reboot https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201314
How to start up from macOS Recovery Turn on your Mac and immediately press and hold these two keys: Command (⌘) and R. Need help? Release the keys when you see an Apple logo, spinning globe, or other startup screen.
I have tried those instructions repeatedly - and have not been able to get into Recovery Mode. I had been able to do so in the past - to do
sudo csrutil enable
I now want to get out of SIP but can not because the Recovery Mode will not start.
Update Responding to @bmike 's comment . For the following screen - I have tried the following:
- Press and hold ⌘ CommandR before it appeared [and until the normal boot/logon screen shows up]
- Press and hold ⌘ CommandR before anything appears [and until the normal boot/logon screen shows up]
- Press and release ⌘ CommandR repeatedly from after reboot
None of these affect the boot sequence: I end up in normal logon screen in normal boot mode.
Second update Here is the result of
sudo diskutil list
