I'm trying to follow this guide to install a driver for my audio interface on a brand new Macbook Pro M1 16".

I'm booting into recovery mode, but when I click into "Utilities", I'm prompted with the message "There are no users on this volume to recover" and two options to Restart.

The Macbook works perfectly well in all other areas when booted normally. I just need to change the security policy to allow this driver to work, but I can't get through. Very frustrating -- any ideas? Thanks!

Okay after some more troubleshooting and searching - I enabled FileVault encryption, and that worked????!

Just posting for posterity if any1 has a similar issue :)
