I was recently installing updates on my MacBook Pro and during the installation process it came up with, "An unexpected error occurred, none of the updates were installed," and I was given the option of restarting my computer. I pressed restart and let it sit for a while, after approximately five minutes of nothing happening to restart the computer I turned it off at the power button. Upon turning it on again in the middle of the screen it came up with "You need to restart your computer. Hold down the Power Button until it turns off, then press the power button again. I've done this numerous times and I have encountered the same outcome each time. On the left hand side of the screen is as follows:


panic(cpu 0 caller 0xffffff800064ba7b): "Unable to find driver for this platform: \"ACPI'.\n"@/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-1699.26.8/iokit/Kernel/IOPlatformExpert.cpp:15 04
