Mac bootable DVD allows you to startup your Mac if it isn’t able to do so normally. There can be multiple reasons due to which Mac can fail to start. Some of them include:
- Corruption of the Mac File System
- Improper Software Installations
- Outdated macOS
- Virus Infections to Mac boot sector
- Master Boot Record (MBR) corruption
- Corruption of the Boot volume Header
- Boot loader corruption
- Operating system corruption
An unbootable Mac can mean data inaccessibility for you. Moreover, you can’t initiate a backup restore or data recovery procedure on a Mac that doesn’t even start. Thus, the real solution lies either in performing a clean Mac reinstall or in recovering the boot files from the non-booting system. Reinstalling the macOS in such an unplanned manner is a sure-shot way of losing out on all data saved on your Mac startup volume. Thus, recovering boot files to start Mac and then pulling off all data from the system is the only feasible option.
Stellar Data Recovery can help you do just that. The competent software aids you in performing Mac startup hard drive recovery through a series of simple to follow steps. Laced with an interactive GUI, this product makes the complex task of non-booting Macintosh HD recovery a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) operation.
