macOS Mojave was developed as an integrated operating system that is full of good news for its thousands of users. Each and every one of them is an improvement in a world where innovation is the order of the day. Sometimes the problems we encounter in our teams are very complex and the solution can be very complex. That is why we need to know alternative methods that, although somewhat drastic, can help us get our equipment back and that do not remain as a simple paperweight. In this case, we will see how to fix our macOS when the computer does not work properly in recovery mode.
Although macOS is a system that has always been characterized by its security and stability features, it remains a system prone to any type of error, be it a misconfigured service, a general software bug or any other reason that comes directly from affects the optimal operation and start-up of the system.
Lucky for us, macOS Mojave includes a number of utilities in the recovery segment that allow us to recover from options like Time Machine, reinstall macOS, get online help, repair or erase a hard drive, etc. Always focused on optimizing system operation .

Clicking “First Aid” displays the following message. Click the “Run” button to run the corresponding analysis.
3. Reinstall macOS Mojave
