If your Mac won’t boot, you can try to reset it by following these steps:

To enter Recovery mode, restart your Mac while holding down the Command + R keys until you see an Apple logo or spinning globe appears on the screen. From there you can select one of the available options in macOS Recovery mode such as Reinstall macOS or Get Help Online.
5. Finally, if all else fails, you may need to take your Mac to an official Apple Store or authorized repair shop so they can diagnose what’s wrong with it and provide more advanced troubleshooting assistance if necessary.
