I've run the latest round of updates on My 2011 MacBook Pro, and I have run into a snag with the new iCloud control panel.


I want to enable the "Find My Mac" feature, but unfortunately I am not able to, as the checkbox is grayed out. There is an error beside the control saying that I need to update the recovery system as per the title of this thread. I actually already *did* do this earlier today, however, and there are no other updates.


What is going on here? Is it possible that the update didn't actually install properly? I was away from the computer at the time it rebooted and would have installed that portion, so I can't tell, but if I look in the update history, I see "Lion Recovery Update 1.0" from today in the list.


Is anyone else having this problem? I wonder if it's just a buggy update   Hopefully this will be fixed soon by Apple in a subsequent update, but I'm curious if there's something I can do in the meantime.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.1), Just updated to 10.7.2, not listed
