Case description:

A customer contacted us to diagnose his MacBook Pro A1398, the laptop is fine and did not encounter any issue or glitch before. But it stopped working while updating the Operating System. While updating, the process got stuck. According to the customer, it shows that the remaining estimated time is only 1 minute, and it was left aside. The MacBook has been left aside for 30 minutes, but it has no progress at all. Subsequently, he forced this MacBook to restart, but it remained the same.

There has no option for the user to skip or stop the update and the updating process will run automatically when the MacBook boots up. He went to a place to check, and they mentioned the memory is too full and it causes the update to fail, the MacBook must be reformatted, and the data are irrecoverable. He has a lot of important data that needs to be recovered.

Action (Solution):

Fortunately, the SSD of this MacBook remained healthy and working.
