How to Bless Your Drive
Go to Disk Utility
(Finder -> Applications -> Utilities -> Disk Utility) and get the name
of your drive. If your drive is not named Fledging_Feather, make sure to read
the NOTICE at the end of this documentation. If your drive is named Fledging_Feather,
please proceed to the next step.
Open Terminal (Finder
-> Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal) and type the following
command (or copy paste). Again, make sure to read the NOTICE at the end of this
documentation if your drive is not named Fledging_Feather:
bless --folder /Volumes/Fledging_Feather/System/Library/CoreServices/ --file /Volumes/Fledging_Feather/System/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi
Press return. You will be prompted with a password. Please type in your
user password and press return again. Note that you will not be able to view
the password you are typing in.
Repeat steps two and
three with this secondary command, which will complete the blessing of your
bless --mount /Volumes/Fledging_Feather/System/Library/CoreServices/ --file /Volumes/Fledging_Feather/System/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi
Turn your computer
off (do not restart). Turn it on again and watch the Apple logo appear right
NOTICE: there might
be a progress bar after you type your password to login, this is because you
have FileVault enabled.
If you are having any
problems blessing your drive, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
