I did as one of the posters suggested and booted my iMac in target disk mode while connected to my Macbook Pro. I ran the combo update on the other Mac this way and I was able to fix the installation without having to do a Timemachine restore.

Weird, it doesn’t show up in Software Update here. I’ll just go and download the Combo Updater from the website.

I hope it fixes a lot of problems, Lion still isn’t the perfect OS that I am looking for, even if it’s miles ahead of its initial release already.

Damn! I already started the update. Should have waited. :(

Downloading the OS X Lion Update 10.7.3 (Client Combo) found here: http://support.apple...nloads/#osxlion
Hope that's the right one. Will save to an external drive in case I get the same issue so many seem to have.

Used the combo update. Didn't use the software update mode. Working perfect :)

Remember, even tho I even worried a little, there will be MILLIONS of people who have zero problems updating with the software update. And those that do, may even have integrated 3rd party stuff, causing issues. Unsure, but like I say, we're a minor slice of the Mac user pie here.

The only issue I had with 10.7.3 was that the download kept stopping. (Which could have been a problem with my internet connection, granted.)

After installing it everything works smoothly. If not snappier than with 10.7.2.

Im already at the point where it's asking me to restart to install updates. Guess I'll have to give it a go and hope for the best. Worst case, I'll use Time Machine to restore from yesterday's backup.

The updater from the link I provided in my previous post is on an external drive now.

Just updated not too long ago with the combo update after reading other issues with the standard update. The update didn't have any problems and everything seems to be god so far here.

The update appears to have gone through ok for me except for one thing. Each time, I bring the iMac out of sleep, WiFi is NOT connected. I didn't have this problem before 10.7.3. I just rebooted the iMac and so I'll see if it happens again.

Thanks! I think it looks kind of silly. Why is the finger angled to the left?
