Mac shuts down when booting from bootable USB
I recently had my stock hard drive crash. So I bought an OWC SSD. Since it’s a blank SSD with nothing on it, I only have a few options on how to get my mac up and running again.
What I have tried so far:
- Internet Recovery (shuts down before getting to the utilities screen)
- Booting from an old backup (doesn’t work)
- Creating a bootable USB with High Sierra (Shuts down after about 10% of loading)
I have been told that DiskMaker X works really well. However, the only working Mac I have access to is at work, and I can’t really be downloading software on a shared Mac.
Does anyone have any other suggestion on what to do, or why my Mac shuts down so quickly when trying to load a bootable USB? I’ve been told multiple times that that’s my best option.
I just feel like I am out of luck here, and should just give up on trying to revive this computer.
Also, I would like to add that the “P, =, -” keys do not work for some reason, so I am unable to reset the PRAM.
Thank you in advance for your help/suggestions.
