  • Mr Saphique Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)

    I am having no problems at all but that might be because I did a fresh, clean install about a week ago.

  • Goumic Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I have the same problem, but I cannot use the combo updater because all my browsers immediately crash. I could restore from my Time Machine backup, but ironically, I cannot get into the restore mode on my late 2008 MacBook. I hold the cmd key after start, but after like 2 seconds it shows me the login screen with my account and the guest account – and nothing happens. What should I do? Thanks

  • JonBruc Level 2 Level 2 (200 points)

    I updated an old Mac Pro (1,1) using Software Update and had no issues.

  • JonBruc Level 2 Level 2 (200 points)

    Try holding option after restart.

  • Roemer Van Toorn Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    It is a shame that Apple is not providing any answers as yet!

     

    I have no extra HD, nor a USB lion disk, and with Disk Utilities I didn't manage yet to open the combo update.

     

    Please help

    Where do I find Terminal when I am in Disk Utilities from my Start Up Disk?

    Hold cmd+r to get into the recovery partition then follow these steps http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4718

  • Roemer Van Toorn Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    does not work for me, line in terminal is not correct, Do i need to type it exactly as indicated with spaces in between? All doesnt work

  • KAdamsInCo Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Thanks!  This worked.

     

    Instead of mounting the dmg in Disk Utilty, I just did it via the command line in Terminal as a shortcut.  Once the comb-updater applied successfully, I shut down the MB Pro and restarted.  Everything came up clean.  Looks good.

     

    I created a Lion recovery USB stick (although, I proabably could have just booted from the Recovery partition on that Mac, now that I think about it) to boot the machine that had the fatal UI problem.  From another Mac, I downloaded the 1.3 GB combo update DMG file and copied it to an external USB drive.

     

    Once the failed MB Pro booted into recovery, I plugged in the USB drive, went to Utilities -> Terminal and performed the following:

     

    1) Used hdiutil to mount the combo-updater dmg:

     

    -bash-3.2# hdiutil mount /Volumes/USBDRIVE/MacOSXUpdCombo10.7.3.dmg

    Shut down the MB Pro.  Rebooted from the hard drive.  Everything seems to be working fine now.  It's running 10.7.3 successfuly.

     

    Thanks again.

    Since I can't edit my post anymore, here is the cleaned-up solution.

     

    Terminal won't start under broken OSX, so you can not download 10.7.3 combo directly.

     

    Instead:

    • Boot into your Lion Recovery Partition/Time Machine Partition (by holding Option/Alt key on boot).
    • Select "Browse for help online" to gain access to Safari.
    • Go to http://support.apple.com/downloads/ and download the 10.7.3 Combo Update [1.3GB].
    • https://support.apple.com/downloads/DL1484/en_US/MacOSXUpdCombo10.7.3.dmg
    • Right-click on Download button, and select "Download Linked File As..." and select your startup disk.
    • After download complete, quit Safari.
    • Open Disk Utility -> File -> Open Disk Image -> and select the MacOSXUpdCombo10.7.3.dmg from the directory you saved it to.
    • After mounting successful, quit Disk Utility and go to Menubar and select Utilities -> Terminal.
    • Type in "installer -pkg /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ 10.7.3\ Update\ Combo/MacOSXUpdCombo10.7.3.pkg  -target /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD" (without quotes) and hit Return/Enter to run the comand.
    • Target Disk may vary depending on your startup disk's name.
    • Installation takes 5-15min so be patient.
    • When installation is complete, simply type in reboot and hit Return/Enter.

     

    Hope this will help.

    I was able to put this up using information from syberyans' post, and improvisation.

     

    Cheers!

  • syberyan Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Nice summary!

    I had to use a USB stick because I swapped my drive for an SSD, so the recovery partition is gone!

    Most of you should be able to use that partition though.

  • Sermon Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    Unfortunately I'm one of those who installed 10.7.3 (on the iMac - early 2009) and now can't launch any apps apart from iTunes (can't even open the System Configuration). Do you think this approach will work:

     

    Over at OSXDaily.com they're saying that downloading the Combo-Install file and installing that file on top of the existing, corrupt 10.7.3 installation gets rid of the problem. Since I can't I open any apps I don't see a way to download the Combo Install with the iMac.

     

    However, I also have a MacBook Air which still runs on 10.7.2. How about downloading the Combo-Install on the Air, saving the DMG file to a USB stick, then copying the DMG file from the USB stick to the iMac and then running the installation? Would that work?

     

    I guess this would save me the trouble of either using an older Time Machine backup or completely reinstalling Lion, which would probably take considerably longer than my approach ...

  • Camel_PL Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    A little modified version for Update from USB:

     

    • Boot into your Lion Recovery Partition/Time Machine Partition (by holding Option/Alt key on boot).
    • Insert your USB stick with MacOSXUpdCombo10.7.3.dmg.
    • Open Disk Utility -> File -> Open Disk Image -> and select the MacOSXUpdCombo10.7.3.dmg from your USB stick.
    • After mounting successful, quit Disk Utility and go to Menubar and select Utilities -> Terminal.
    • Type in "installer -pkg /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ 10.7.3\ Update\ Combo/MacOSXUpdCombo10.7.3.pkg  -target /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD" (without quotes) and hit Return/Enter to run the comand.
    • Target Disk may vary depending on your startup disk's name.
    • Installation takes 5-15min so be patient.
    • When installation is complete, simply type in reboot and hit Return/Enter.

     

    Should work.

  • Sermon Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    Do I have to go into the Recovery partition and use the Terminal?

     

    Can't I just boot up the iMac, insert the USB-Stick with the Combo file, drag the Combo file from the USB-Stick to the desktop, double-click the DMG-file and install and after finishing the installation reboot?

    If you are able to Open ANY finder window - yes you can!

    If not, It's the simpliest solution.
