Re: ESXi 6 OS X Guest Entering Recovery mode fails




in the meantime i recognized that a stock install DVD (or .dmg, .iso etc.) does NOT feature the "Recovery" partition (which would be nice here), therefore attempts to boot the installation medium into recovery mode did not fail due to timing issues, but due to the fact that the recovery partition is missing.



Therefore: in all cases your system drive got so heavily corrupted that it's "Recovery" partition is lost, you must dare to clean install a fully fledged OSX onto that drive, just in order to get hold of a Recovery option by which you then can TimeMachine restore your system drive...



Being under pressure to deliver and lacking any time to develop a better option here i'll go this route, if not accidently somebody of you has a smarter option off the top of his/her head...
