Have a 500GB hard drive, repaired permissions before doing the combo update, went to repair permissions after the update & this is what I see:

    only one partition mate, the blue bit is used space and the white is un-used space on the existing partition. Also it only has one volume (Macintosh HD) on the left under your main HDD.


    Hope this helps mate.


    Edit: misread, I noticed you said 500GB HDD. obviously Disk utility is reporting different only claims 250GB, what is obvious that there is no other partitions, but I've no idea why Disk Utility says you have a smaller Disk.


    You sure your model had the 500GB when you purchased?

    It appears that your drive was only 250G before the update so everything looks normal to me.
