    For many reasons particularly emergency situations like this or other disk maintenance I keep a external disk with the current OSX distribution installed and up to date.  When you power on the machine you can hold down the Option key and select the external drive to boot from then I apply the combo updater which I have previously downloaded and keep on my own internal software library to the disk that is corrupted by this update.

     

    I own 5 macs and can use this single distribution on any of them.  I also keep installations of TechTools and DiskWarrior on that external disk.

    I also had the kernal panic problem while installing the thunderbolt update. I am in the process of reinstalling lion. Think I think will buy an external drive to backup my MacBook pro in case of future problems.

    i can't download lion now, is there any way i can boot from any other bootable os (linux for instance) and install the combo updater?

    I have the same problem with MPB early 2011.

    What is the fastest and safest solution? Command-R and reinstall Lion? Or booting in target drive mode and install the latest combo update? Are the applications, documents, and data still be there in both solutions?

     

    Hope it will be fixed soon

    On that, does anyone know if the 10.7.4 combo update is good or does it also have the KP problem?

    Yes data and applications should be there in both cases. 

     

    My opinion is just applying the combo updater is far faster than a total re-install.  On my MBP this took just a few minutes but I was prepared with a bootable external drive and had the combo updater previously downloaded.  If you didn't have these things the re-install may be quicker.

    It is good.  That is how I restored to previous working condition.

    Since the combo updater is a OSX application there really isn't an option to use a different OS to apply it.

    Hi,

     

    I've a mid-Junge 2011' 13inch MacBookPro. Today morning I installed the newest updates, restart the machine and got the same error .... something like "debugging kernel panic" and the system wasn't starting...

     

    Then, I did some research on the web (thank god my iPad was still alive) and called the apple support hotline. They told me just so hold the "alt" button during the startup, then choose the recovery HD, re-install the OS X Lion and everything should be fine then. I did so, hoping that nothing of my personal data will be touched, and an hour later everything was fine ... So, the reinstall worked, I am just afraid now to update the Software again ;-)

    apple! I just wasted my day with this apple update. Any news from apple?

    Same thing happened to me - first time wouldn't boot, re-cloned from backup, tried it again, again wouldn't boot. I have an OWC SSD drive and 16 GB RAM, Macbook Pro 15" 2011 model (i7).

     

    So is Apple saying that, after re-installing from the recovery partition, the thunderbolt update is stil applied? Or not?

     

    At this point it's not worth it to me to try again.

    This is absolutely unacceptable.  Still nothing from Apple - and to think they have the audacity to charge people for telling them how to fix this..!!
