Hey man!Hey man.
Well, for starters, this is what I use to mount the EFI partition, are we on the same line?
(Sudo not needed on recovery as you start as root).Code:
mkdir /Volumes/efi mount -t msdos /dev/disk[B]XXX[/B] /Volumes/efi
If that's exactly what you're doing then it baffles me as well, since I had no trouble reading the partition.
And that's also the command I always use when messing around with Clover Wizard thingy (except I have to sudo the mount).
An idea would be, to use your bootable USB disk, if available, and up to date (basically, a verbatim copy of the internal EFI partition, otherwise it may get stuck on an error message or a white screen or infinite loop; that's why I didn't even used mine, because dumb me forgot to update the USB stick and my internal EFI is not the same as the EFI folder on the USB anymore, but I'll get back to it over the weekend), to perform the same "fix" and boot from it.
Last resource, try and mount the EFI from ubuntu, see if anything's different.
Thanks a lot for the reply/help
I tried messing about with the commands you used in Terminal for a while, but couldn't get anywhere.
Eventually I switched to the Ubuntu USB stick method - it was a lot simpler than I thought and I managed to do it straight away lol -_-
Always a bit frustrating when that happens, but you live and you learn!
Thanks again for the help mate
