    Why the hesitation with reinstalling? You shouldn't lose anything, but it is good to have a bootable backup just in case.

    You will have to reinstall - as it appears that you have the wrong build for your machine, I will assume that you will not be able to update - if you can't update to 10.8.2, what makes you think you'll be able to update to 10.8.3??


    At this point, I am wondering how you came to have a wrong build installed. I am also out of ideas except for a reinstall. Not sure why you would not let them reinstall, but that is the only thing I can think of that will get your machine  to the point where it should be.

    我也是 rMBP '15,预装了 12b2100 版本的 10.8.1 系统。


    APP Store 内只有一个 iPhoto,要安装必须升级的 10.8.2,但是自动更新找不到升级包,手动下载的对应 rMBP 2012 年中及 2012 年末(13')的的两个升级包都没法更新。


    我认为应该是预装的新版系统官网的资料还未有及时更新,并不是预装了错误的 rMBP '13 系统。


    用非原厂的镜像重装可能会造成与硬件不对应的未知问题。建议静等苹果推送到 APP Store 的更新,这样应该会是最方便的解决办法了。

    It is not safe to publish private information on public forums; if you want someone to contact you, put it in your profile, but never in the open forum.

    ok. thank u:))


    Now. Reinstall the OS X.  update...


    em... and something not good....



    MacBook Pro

    Retina, Mid 2012

    Processor  2.3 GHz Intel Core i7

    Memory  8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

    Graphics  Intel HD Graphics 4000 512 MB

    Software  OS X 10.8.2 (12C3012)



    12c3012 ?? Is it right?? 

  • Barney-15E Level 8 (46,294 points)

    Yes, that is a valid build number for the Retina displays.


    Until Apple unifies it all (likely in 10.8.3), you will have a custom build for your Mac.

    At this point I have to admit I am too confused with all the special builds/OS versions, but according to the chart, a late 2012 has build 12C2034 - the OP has a mid 2012.


    So should he wind up with the build of a late 2012 when updating?

  • Barney-15E Level 8 (46,294 points)

    I too have no idea. He will have to end up with custom build of some sort until it is unified for the current hardware. I would image the Late 2012 build would work with the mid 2012 hardware.

  • babowa Level 7 (29,940 points)

    Well, I'm certainly glad to hear I'm not the only one!


    Remember the good old days - there seemed to be one update offered by Software Update that worked????
