MacBook Pro Recovery

“I have a MacBook Pro which is crashed recently due to OS failure. And, I lost a huge amount of data stored on that MacBook Pro Laptop. Is there any way to recover my files from MacBook Pro?”

Typically, you won’t be able to boot a crashed/failed MacBook Pro. This is the case where a large number of MacBook Pro users become victims of data loss.

But, have you ever think is there any way to make the MacBook Pro bootable rather than immediately recovering data from dead or crashed MacBook Pro? No? Then, read this story.

Instead of trying to restore files from MacBook Pro directly, check whether you can boot it in any way. For this, you can make a bootable USB drive and use it to start your MacBook Pro.

How to Boot the Dead/Crashed MacBook Pro Using Bootable USB Disk?

Step 1: First download the macOS installer from the App Store (close, if it opens automatically after download). Ensure macOS installer is present in the Applications folder.

Step 2: Mount a USB drive and open Mac Terminal.

Step 3: Type createinstallmedia and hit Enter key to create a bootable installer.

Step 4: Type below path depending on your OS version and press Enter button.

  • Sierra: /Applications/Install\ macOS\
  • El Capitan: /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\
  • Yosemite: /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\
  • Mavericks: /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\

Step 5: Now, insert this bootable USB disk and boot your dead MacBook Pro from USB.

Step 6: Backup entire data from MacBook Pro onto a safe drive.

If you can’t boot the MacBook Pro using above steps then, check at least, you have an updated backup of MacBook Pro data. In case, you don’t have backup also, then grab Yodot Mac Data Recovery straight away.
