The EFI partition is valid. The mounting script doesn't work for whatever reason. Try this
macOS apparently ignore the name in the partition table and only considers filesystem label, neither of which are required by UEFI (and neither is the partition GUID for that matter)Code:
$ diskutil mount disk0s1 $ diskutil rename disk0s1 EFI
'MBR: Protective' Normal GPT disks have an old style MBR partition table, alongside the GUID partition table that masks the entire disk as being taken up by a single MBR partition. Without this, legacy software that cannot understand GPT would see the disk as empty creating a potential for confusion and data loss, hence 'protective'.
Won't let me, do you think the lacking of a name is what's preventing me to mount it?
sudo diskutil mount disk0s1 Password: Volume on disk0s1 failed to mount If the volume is damaged, try the "readOnly" option If the volume is an APFS Volume, try the "diskutil apfs unlockVolume" verb sudo diskutil mountdisk disk0s1 Volume(s) mounted successfully sudo diskutil rename disk0s1 EFI Volume must be mounted
I suppose I could reinstall Mac OS again and restore my TimeMachine backup
UPDATE !!! Successs !!! I used gdisk and d to delete the entire partition, then create a new one with n, chose the sectors as it was before then type and name , rebooted and voila !!! There it is !!
Thank you so much for your help mate, you've saved me and now I know about gdisk for future mess ups hahahaha
Big Cheers !!!!
