Hi everyone,

I made a big mistake. After a security update i have been asked to encrypt my drive and by mistake i have click on yes...
Now Clover isn't able to see my boot drive. But with the Preboot recovery i can go to the diskutility and mount my drive with my user password.

How can i get my Hard drive back ?
Is it possible to come back to normal APFS without reformating the drive ?
I found this : https://sourceforge.net/p/cloverefiboot/tickets/402/ : how can this help me ?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Ben

Well i try to find some solutions, it looks like i have activated Filevault...
I find this on a forum.
But i try : " diskutil corestorage list "
I have : " No CoreStorage logical volume groups found ".
I can get the UUID of my drive by using the "diskutil info disk1s1"
but ... i can't use corestorage unlockVolume

some clue ?

Hi Everyone,

After searching i find this
i have installed the efi files.
reboot in the high sierra from preboot.
and now i could use my usb keyboard to sign in ( i had to unplug and re-plug once)

And i have been able to start My Mac normaly.
Now i have desactivate File Vault...

Hope this could help those who are as stupid as i am...
