    Why don't they just do a system restore instead of a re-install?

    It just works...
     
  10. It happened to me, fortunately I had just backed up to time machine and was able to restore from that backup. Its a real pain.
     
  11. It does happen. Safe boot did not work for me. Had to reinstal from 10.6.7 DVD......not a good story. Now back to Lion and yes, I see the Thunderbolt update has gone from the list, although it was there at 1am UK time. A 1 yr old MacBookPro with Lion 10.7. Processor 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7
     
     
  12. 10.7 seems to be fully as buggy as 10.0

    Apple has managed to go backwards 12 years... not even Microsoft has ever been capable of such a feat.
     
  13. Yes it happened to me too and I for whatever reason I couldn't restore Lion as it wouldn't download all the way , just 3/4 the freeze. Booked a genius bar at my nearest store and have not long came back with my 13" MBP working correctly . They used a combined OX and software update drive so I have the latest version of Lion ( so I was told) . Up until this I have never had any issues with my MBP , it was more akin to a windows experience .
