I have Mountain Lion.

I get the same dimmed "Find my Mac", but instead of "Update" I have a "More" button.

When I press it, it tells me that "Find my Mac needs a recovery partition".

The recipe given here doesn't work because I have Mountain Lion.

What should I do ?

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    You need to create a Recovery HD. Was one not created when you installed Lion or Mountain Lion for the first time? Are you able to do this:

     

    Boot to the Recovery HD:


    Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the COMMAND and R keys until the menu screen appears. Alternatively, restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the OPTION key until the boot manager screen appears. Select the Recovery HD and click on the downward pointing arrow button.

    It failed because it does not apply to Mountain Lion.

    You asked, so obviously you can't read an error message very well. You cannot install that update because it will not work with Mountain Lion. What more do you need? You apparently have no Recovery HD or the one you have is damaged.

     

    Good luck with your problem. I don't work with rude people.
