I tried to reinstall my Macbook, so I rebooted it into recovery mode and cleared my disk.
I then rebooted, at which point it prompted me to connect to Wi-Fi for "Remote Recovery". I've been trying for hours, but no matter what I do, it will spin for a while then exit with an error. I've tried every boot keyboard shortcut in the book for alternative recovery modes, but it always boots into remote recovery mode.
Connecting an Ethernet cable doesn't work, it still just prompts me to connect over WiFi. Other people with this issue recommended setting DNS servers to 188.8.131.52, with guides for how to do this on the Macbook, which makes no ****ing sense when I'm stuck in remote recovery mode. I updated my router to use 184.108.40.206 but it made no difference.
Worse yet, it's not possible to power off my Macbook. If I shut it down by holding the power button, it turns itself back on after a few seconds, no matter if the lid is down and I'm not connected to power. And to make things better, it's running hot as hell, to the point where I almost can't touch the touch bar.
I am actually losing my &#(/"%#ing mind here. What do I do.
I believe it's the latest generation of Macbook Pro with touch bar before the M1 chip came out, so it's an Intel machine.
