After I click the “Upgrade” in the old MacBook Pro 2011, High Sierra, after upgrade for a while, then I saw the blue screen, waiting for a long time, it’s still show the blue screen.

Try force reboot, with “Option” key, it has options

  1. EFI BOOT
  2. Mac OS X Install
  3. Max OS X

I have try all of them, [1] will show some errors with some text, [2] & [3] will show the same blue screen.

Then also tried

  1. Recovery Mode, doesn’t work
  2. Network Recovery Mode, doesn’t work
  3. Hardware test, seems check passed.
  4. CMD+v, verbose mode, it works.

Finally try convert dmg to iso, and burn it with “dd”
