Booting OS-X into Single User Mode on VMware ESXi

Post date: Jun 21, 2014 6:08:18 PM

So, you have an OS-X VM running on ESXi on a MAC mini and you want to boot it into single user mode?

Your PC keyboard and standard CMD+S or Option+S not working for you?

Open the EFI Shell (delete/space at boot, Boot Manager)

Select your partition and run the boot.efi with the -s, -v option or any other boot options you wanted...


cd System\Library\CoreServices\

boot.efi -s
