I have a Mac Mini 2018 that I’m trying to boot from an external SSD. Apparently this requires going into recovery mode to allow the boot from external drives.
The problem is that when I reboot, I can’t get the thing to do recovery mode. I’ve tried command-R, command-option-R, command-option-shift-R, none of it works.
Obviously this is a Mini, so the keyboard is external - and in this case it’s a wired keyboard.
Anybody have any thoughts as to how to get this to recognize the keystrokes on reboot? Or alternatively, if there’s some way I could just tell it via Terminal that I want to reboot into recovery mode, that would be fabulous.
