    I am working from the assumption that my config.plist file is corrupted somehow and causing the break. Working on creating a new one.

    Well there was an error w nonkey in this dict so I deleted it and started up but still seems to be the same. I dont think it's relevant to my overall issue as I had made another config.plist without those lines.
    <key>Debug</key>
    <false/>
    <key>DropOEM_DSM</key>
    <false/>
    <key>ReuseFFFF</key>
    <false/>

    Upgrading should have been easy but I got lost along the way. Id like to take control of whatever the hell it is I'm booting.
    I am trying all these fixes for audio and sleep which may be pointless as I'm not even sure if they're having an effect on the intended boot. When I load macos recovery it says it cant even find my sparsebundle so I want to make this work without having to do a fresh.

    Trying to KEEP my file system in tact, do I skip this step? I've done this so many times and enough time passes that I forget each time.

    Just think about it logically, when you format a drive or partition everything is erased.

    Right, I know this. Basically I'm wondering if the definition of "new installation" means that no OSX has ever been installed on the drive or could reinstalling the OS be considered a "new installation". Seems vague. I keep updating and have been doing fine for about seven years or so, but I have my paranoid doofus moments.

    If you want to keep your data don't format the drive / partition.
