    Both excellent points.  Yes, the HDMI issue definitely affects 10.8.1, since that is what all three of my minis have been on.  For some reason, I've not had as much trouble with the server version they gave me as I did with the two regular mini's that I started out with.  I'm going for it!

    Thanks to all who posted about the no ill efects of the update.  As stated, I want to ensure that I dont cause issues with whatever post they put out, so I will wait it out a couple more days.  After that I will be pressed to install it.  Glad to hear I have a plan B.

    I cloned my drive and then applied the update.  That way, I can use it with the update until Apple gets around to releasing a new update.  And if I run into any issues, I can always revert to the clone.

    Did you try it out? Is it bootable? Which build is it? That can be found on the More Info pane of About This Mac.

    The build is 12C2034, the same one pulled last week. Downloaded the dmg and it installed fine. After that I installed the 10.8.2 supplemental update via Software Update. No problems at all.

    Good work & wise, but it may be possible to reinstall the new 10.8.2 Update if it comes out, tough to tell nowadays.

  • RRFS Level 5 (4,490 points)

    Thanks, that's what my Mini shipped with, do you know what the supplement is for?

  • PackDude Level 1 (5 points)

    Try what?  The clone?  Or the update?  I haven't tested the clone.  After applying the update, I applied the supplemental update as well, so the current build is 10.8.2 (12C60).  Interestingly, the graphics is reported as an NVidia GeForce 9400M.

  • RRFS Level 5 (4,490 points)

    Yes, did you try booting the Clone? Is yours a late 2012 Mini? I thought only the 12C2034 build would boot late 2012 Minis.

  • PackDude Level 1 (5 points)

    No, I didn't try the clone.  I've used SuperDuper several times in the past and never had any problems.  Yes, it is a late 2012 MM.   To be clear, the clone is of the 10.8.1 software that was on the mini when I bought it, not of the update.

  • RRFS Level 5 (4,490 points)

    OK thanks.

  • PackDude Level 1 (5 points)

    Wow...I'm an idiot.    I was screen sharing from my MBP to my mini earlier, but forgot that I had switched back, so the build and graphics I posted earlier were for the MPB.  The current build on my mini is the 12C2034 build and the graphics are correct. 

  • RRFS Level 5 (4,490 points)

    OK thanks for that, I was starting to think I was losing my mind, what little of it I have left, of course.

    I do not know if this would work for Apperture or not, but after buying my nice new Mini this weekend from the apple store, which noone mentioned the issue ( i am sure they knew ) and then finding out this issue. Sure I guess I could have look here first, but not expecting it. The main thing I wanted to see is how much better FCPX would work over my 2009 mini and seeing I could not install it or update the mini. The update downloaded from thier website would not install stating the hard drive did not meet requirments like others as well. After a couple of days of boredom of not being able to try it. I decided to drag the FCP from my MBpro to the Mini and try it out since it is linked to my same Apple account. It loads and runs, it complains about needing 10.8.2 but allows me to continue. It seems to run fine and has not crashed yet. It at least alows me to run it until they get the fix.

    Interesting, thanks.
