iMac stalls on bootup
Helping a friend with his iMac (emc2639). It was using Mojave at the time, when it froze, so he did a hard restart. Got the Apple logo, but startup bar would only go half way.
I tried all the usual troubleshooting (Disk Warrior, Disk Utility, Drive Genius), all come back saying drive is fine, but I still get the same result (startup bar goes halfway and stalls). Also will not boot into Recovery.
He said I could wipe it, so I did (I had to do this with it as a Target drive, because it also won’t boot from my installers). Got it restored back to Sierra, as that its the last one I can do with it as a Target drive. Same problem, get the chime, Apple logo, and then the bar stalls at halfway point. As a Target drive though, it will run my iMac just fine!! When I hold Option key, I see hd with my install, Recovery partition, and my High Sierra install disk, but it won’t boot to any of them. Wah!!
