    Same problem here with my Late 2011 MacBook Pro. Luckily I had a TimeMachine backup from yesterday and after restoring everything was back to normal.

    Same thing here.  Kernel panic.  Looked at the error message in the kernel panic and was immediately convinced it was the Thunderbolt update.  Reverted to 10.7.2 using a Lion DVD I made and did not need to resort to Time Machine, thank goodness, as it's a while since I backed up.  Funky font problem in MS Word but otherwise OK.  Ran all updates including back to 10.7.4, except for the Thunderbolt.  Working fine now, fonts included.

    I just performed the combo update via Target mode, and everything is running perfectly. No lost data... Safari tabs, Finder windows, other open apps, etc... it's all there!

     

    Only catch for me was that the "normal" 10.7.4 update did not work, as I am running Lion Server. However, you can find the 10.7.4 Server Combo Update here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1529

     

    Good luck!

    Hi there,

     

    Thanks for the info about reinstalling Lion.

     

    Can I ask?  I get to the point where it says 'Downloading Additional Components. Your computer will restart automatically.'

     

    But then it goes back to the previous screen where you can choose Reinstall Lion and it doesn't restart.

     

    What should I do? Manually restart it to continue the installation?

     

    Thanks,

    Andy

    Thanks for the info on this. I'm also impacted, and on holidays away from my time machine backups :(.

     

    Fortunately I have Internet connection where I am for these couple of days.

     

    'downloading additional components...' did not move for some time but is slowly moving now, says it will take over 9 hours!

     

    This is pretty poor form by Apple and worse that they did not pull the update. Have we got to the point where we need to check the forums before doing any minor update. I hope not.

     

    I'll let you know if this works, but from other comments, it looks like it should.

    I believe the update has been pulled. Software Update doesn't show thunderbolt update anymore.

    I wish I had heard about this before I updated at 9:30 EST.... Luckily I have another Mac for target disk mode and an iPad so I could find a solution so quickly... I'm running an early 2011 MBP and this is certainly not what I wanted to do on my day off.....Thanks to all you guys for figuring this out!!!!!!!!  I'm applying the combo update now and hopefully all is good from here... thanks community

    i'm curently trying the lion download method but i'm getting 40 hours remaining. is it quicker to cancel this and use the combo mode with my MBP or should I just leave it going?

    I'm not sure about this.  I haven't heard of it returning to the previous screen.  Do you have an internet connection that is working?

     

    It should move from the downloading additional components to a progress bar and estimated time to completion, then installing the os, and after that rebooting to your login or desktop.

     

    It shouldn't require a manual restart for this process.  Anyone else have advice on this one?

    I would most definitely stop the Lion install download if it is possible for you to use Target mode. I only say that because of how well it worked for me with absolutely no data lost. It even resumed my session prior to having to restart for the TB 1.2 update to install.

    The combo mode takes about 30 minutes to solve the problem, if you not install further updates.

    I wouldn't doubt this is due to server load as people discover solutions and attempt to apply them.  If you have the means, try the combo fix described in this same discussion topic.  That method would be faster anyway, I just didn't have the requirements to go that route.

    Thanks, I need to go home and finish updating. Hopefully I won't see it too.

    The Thunderbolt update appears now to be removed, so hopefully won't affect others....
