I tried to go to singleuser mode on both drive options but in the local harddrive it is not booting anyways.
I am not recieveing any 6 digit password option in recovery mode niether any variables in the nvram if i write nvram -p in the recovery boot singleuser mode.

Hi Rehabman
I had already followed this link, but it didn't help me.

I tried to go to Super User mode on the Local drive, but it does not boot, Also tried to boot into Shell 64 mode, but it just hangs on a black screen.

Is there any other way to get this done?
Are you booting shellx64.efi through Clover or directly through BIOS.

It is probably best you reply to the post I linked. Perhaps the original author can offer some insight.

I can start in -s mode in from recovery harddisk but not from the main harddisk

It gets stuck at Using reloc block: yes, hibernate wake: no

I tried to install yosemite on a separate HDD, but no luck, removed the CMOS battery also to reset Cmos(had to dismantle the laptop) is there a duration for which i should remove the battery?,

Still getting the same error...Please help857D6369-1769-4FA5-8B0C-993B308D1079B42DE3DF-114E-4348-A7C7-A8B415F3FAC1.jpg
