    Exclamation Missing Mac Boot Drive after installing linux kali dual boot

    I was trying to install linux as dual boot on mac os (macbook pro mid2012 - High Sierra) following this tutorial:

    I installed refind rEFInd and everything was working as expected, then I installed linux kali without using GRUB, and could still boot to MAC OS through rEFInd, but then re-installed linux kali and installed GRUB, after that I could no longer see the boot partition of MAC OS on rEFInd.

    I've tried mounting it from disk manager in recovery mode (without success), tried booting from GRUB by manually creating an option to boot from the disk (says path not found).

    I have been searching for a solution for the past 5 or 6 hours with no luck.

    In recovery mode, the command "diskutil list disk0" returns:

    0: GUID_partition_scheme *500.1 GB disk0
    1: EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1
    2: FFFFFFFFFF-FFFF-FFFF-FFFF-FFFFFFFF 470.0 GB disk0s2 -> mac partition
    3: combination of letters/numbers 28.0 GB disk0s3 -> linux partition
    4: Linux Swap 1.6 GB disk0s4

    The strange part is that a lot more disks seem to have been created (12 in total, although only disk1 makes sense and the rest seems garbage) command "diskutil list disk1" returns:

    0 : Apple_partition_scheme *1.2 GB disk1
    1: Apple_partition_map 30.7 KB disk1s1
    2: Apple_HFS Mac OS X Base System 1.2 GB disk1s2

    EDIT: Linux Kali works well - also I cannot see the mac drive when holding cmd on boot

    EDIT2: Basically MAC OS does not detect any disk, I just tried to install macos from recovery and it cannot find any disk, but doing "diskutil list" returns the results above.
