Ditto. Hosed my Macbook Pro i5 2010 15".


running off my backup drive to try and reinstall the update from download instead of through software update.



Total Garbage. I have a lot of photos to run through for Sports this evening. Total Crap.

APPLE, this is a serious problem, fix this ASAP!!!


I just updated my MacBook Air, latest edition, to 10.7.3 and immediately, none of my apps work after installing. The only apps I found working is iCal so far and the update checking process seems fine.


I can't use safari, finder or even system properties. I dont want to restore my system. Who's going to pay for my time lost? So I expect a quick emergency update to fix this.

FOLKS I have fixed mine...it went fast because I have fiber and well, SSD rocks.



Ok, I booted into my old drive with 10.7.2. via USB


I downloaded the COMBO update via http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1484


I installed the combo and ran Disk Utilty a couple times to make sure nothing obvious was broken or permissions sticky bit was whacked out.


Boots up into 10.7.3 fine.



If I had to guess, I'd say the installer is either got a bad pack for Macbooks here (judging by the comments) or it is quitting prematurely and rebooting before the update is fully completed - which has happened with Snow Leopard in the past on some of my machines.


I'm out of here, I have a Sh*t ton of photo this evening.


Good luck y'all. Apple get your act together.

Just updated half a dozen MBP's ranging in age from 2007 to 2010. Used the combo udate on 3 and incremental update on the other 3. Also updated a server OS. No problems to report at all.


Now have to go update 40 more users in the bulding. Feeling brave and confident that all will be fine. If not, all my users are runnig CrashPlan, which btw is godsent.

The same problem here on Mac Pro (2,1). The same update went fine on my Mac mini. Now I am restoring from Time Machine and I'll try with the Combo Updater.


I am sorry for the users without backup, Apple should check updates like this with more care. This is the first time since 10.0 beta that I have problem with an update.
