What to do when your Mac won’t turn on after an update

Top 3 steps to try if your Mac has been upgraded to Mojave and won’t restart.

So, let’s start with why this happens after an update, be it to a newer version or the latest Mac operating system currently Mojave. 

– The Mac’s EFI boot sequence has been interrupted. This means that the Mac won’t restart after the update, since it has phases to go through to boot the Mac which have been damaged.

The solution is a little more challenging to fix. In our previous article we gave some tips on what to do to try and resolve a Mac problem where an update is completed and the Mac doesn’t restart. Check them out here
