nvram (Verbose Mac OS startup)

/ Published in: Bash
Save to your folder(s)

Verbose booting shows you the actual process of Mac OS X's startup. You'll see drivers get loaded and services launch. This command should work on any recent (New World) Macintosh: sudo /usr/sbin/nvram boot-args="-v". The -v flag tells the system to boot verbosely. You can get the same result by holding Command + V at boot time, but that will only work the one time. Modifying the boot-args will cause Mac OS X to always boot verbosely from now on... To resume normal booting, use the command sudo /usr/sbin/nvram boot-args="".

  1. sudo /usr/sbin/nvram boot-args="-v"
