    Unable to Boot MacOS again
    I have an issue with my MacBook mid 2012. After deleting my Ubuntu partition, I lost my principal partition of macOS x. When I restart the MacBook and pressed option, nothing appeared. I tried to fix with Disk Utility on cmd+r, but it did not work. Next, I installed macOS on the Ubuntu partition and I am trying to repair the lost partition from the terminal. I read some posts, but when I try to run the function:

    sudo gpt remove -i 2 /dev/disk0
    It said

    gpt remove: unable to open device '/dev/disk0': Resource busy
    then I read about the force unmount to solve it but appear this message:

    Unmount of disk0 failed: at least one volume could not be unmounted
    Unmount was dissented by PID 1 (/sbin/launchd)
    Dissenter parent PPID 0 (kernel_task)
    When I run Diskutil, the following information appeared

    /dev/disk0 (internal, physical):
    #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
    0: GUID_partition_scheme *240.1 GB disk0

    If someone can help me, I will be grateful!

    Welcome to our forums.

    After removing Ubuntu, you should have done a PRAM reset.

    What you need to do now is to wipe the MacBook Pro and then do an internet recovery which will install the original version of macOS that was on your machine. Hopefully, along the way you made a backup of your data otherwise you will lose everything.

    How to use Internet Recovery to reinstall macOS

    • Shut down your Mac.
    • Hold down Command-Option/Alt-R and press the Power button. ...
    • Hold down those keys until you a spinning globe and the message "Starting Internet Recovery. ...
    • The message will be replaced with a progress bar. ...
    • Wait for the MacOS Utilities screen to appear.

    How exactly did you install Ubuntu on this Mac? The recovery console is part of the recovery partition, and if you managed to somehow blow that away, you're not going to be able to do the CMD+R process to get back in.

    Also, if you managed to re-install Ubuntu on the drive then you will not be able to unmount it while you are booted into it.

    What version of macOS was on there before? You need to get that version of macOS on an installation media and use that to re-install the OS.
