Description

It could prevent from starting on an external media:

https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208198

The following error message was reported to us (in French):

« Les réglages de sécurité ne permettent pas à ce Mac d’utiliser un disque de démarrage externe. »

This should affect by default, as per https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208862:

  • iMac Pro
  • Mac mini models introduced in 2018
  • MacBook Air models introduced in 2018
  • MacBook Pro models introduced in 2018

It would be good to:

  • Have our help desk confirm that this is really happening on such machines by default
  • Test one of these machines:
    • What's happening by default?
    • Does allowing booting from external media works?
  • Include this in our installation instructions for macOS

Cody: Do you think you can have a hand on one of these machines?

Otherwise, I can try looking for one at the IFF in April.
