Hi, thanks for your help.Theres a way to fix this but first you got to know what kext you accidentally deleted, copy it back into that folder using the uefi shell, and delete whatever folder that holds the kext cache to force a rebuild upon the next rebuild. Just deleting the cache may be all you need. Not sure what the folder location is right now. Someone here told me details last month and have to search my history to tell you more later after morning coffee.
Here it is: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/solved-how-to-rebuild-kextcache.224241/post-2099275
This is my first time really using the terminal with all its command so please bear with me here.
I did what you said and also what was said in the other post. I navigated the terminal in single user mode (is that the UEFI shell?) to my library. I deleted the Caches folder there, then shutdown. I booted and the progress bar got to 100%, stayed there for a while, then the screen turned off while the machine remained on (which it didn't do before, it just stayed at the loading bar forever)
While I was navigating the directories and such, I found the .Trash folder which I opened to check if the deleted kext was still in there, but it wasn't, which is weird because I am certain I did not empty the trash. Any idea how to figure out what the kext was I deleted?
Thanks for your help
