How to fix a Mac Stuck on Apple Logo Progress Bar

How to fix a Mac Stuck on Apple Logo Progress Bar

Is your Mac stuck on the Apple Logo with the Progress Bar?

You may have just done an update or turned it on and are presented with the Apple logo with progress bar and can't do anything. Don't stress this can be something you can fix on your own. Continue reading and follow the steps I outline.

DIY Steps

1. Let it sit for awhile - Apple has been releasing many updates and patches with Mac OS High Sierra over the last few months. Sometimes it will update in the middle of the night or in the morning when the computer is asleep. I recommend giving it at least a few hours to see if it goes through.

2. Turn it off and on while holding Shift key. By holding the key when powering on you are getting into the safe boot option. Safe boot option attempts to repair any file system errors in the operating system. You may have a bad file system which will require an erase and reinstall. If you are able to get into safe boot make sure to do a time machine backup. Follow this guide to do it.

3. Turn it off and on while holding Option key. The option key will give you a cursor and options that look like hard drives on the screen. Option boot into Macintosh HD if you are able to if you are stuck on a screen that says Macintosh could not find the packages. See the photo below. 


when you option boot into the Macintosh HD go to apple logo > system preferences > startup disk > click the lock to unlock the disk and select the Macintosh HD and do a system restart.

4. Go to the recovery partition. Restart the computer and hold the Command + R key until you reach the recovery partition. This partition will allow you to reinstall the operating system if you are having issues. There are tools like disk utility to attempt to fix system errors. This is good if you are tech savvy.
