Hi all,

Im having an issue with the 10.7.2 upgrade. Every time I run the installer, it logs me out and continues the installation as usual. It hits the step "Moving items into place" and gives me a kernel panic. I tried to dig through the debug logs but they do not exist for the panic. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

*UPDATE*
The kernel extension in backtrace is com.apple.driver.ApplePolicyControl(3.0.16). Its dependencys are com.apple.driver.AppleGraphicsControl(3.0.16), com.apple.iokit.IOACPIFamily(1.4), com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily(2.6.5), com.apple.iokit.IONDRVSupport(2.3), and com.apple.iokit.IOGraphicsFamily(2.3)

**UPDATE**
Problem fixed by using the latest ##### for lion and setting smbios to imac 12,2

I have found another solution, for those who don't want to install #####.
I encountered the same problem several times, when I tried to update to 10.7.2 by KP during "Moving Items in to place" stage, and ApplePolicyControl.kext giving troubles (updating both ways - directly from Apple's site with Software Updates or by downloading the Combo package and launching it for update procedures).
I searched the shared information in many places, many testers having the same problem (even some of them using genuine Apple machines), but without a certain result with reliable solution.
Then, I remembered that updating Leopard contained a solution with removing a kext during the installation procedure. I do not remember who proposed the solution, but now is working for this problem mentioned above. I am really sorry for not remembering whom to give the credit for this solution.
Here are the steps to be used:
1. Download the MacOSX 10.7.2 Client Combo package from Apple's site (the .dmg file of about 820 MB).
2. Launch Terminal and use administrator "sudo -s" command then enter the password for administrator's rights.
3. Use the command between the brakes and hit ENTER:
<while sleep 1; do rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ApplePolicyControl.kext; done>
(Nothing seems to happen, but in background the command is waiting for the kext to appear and to erase it quickly)
4. Launch the updater from the .pkg and follow the instructions, after mounting the .dmg file.
5. DO NOT PRESS THE RESTART BUTTON when the update is finished.
6. Switch to the Terminal window and press simultaneously CTRL+C to exit the routine entered.
7. EXIT the Terminal and press now the RESTART button in the Installer of Update window.
That was all, and my system is running now 10.7.2 in 32bit (Dell6400 with IntelGMA950).
I hope this will help others to SOLVE their Kernel Panic troubles that appear do to the ApplePolicyControl.kext

For me it did solve the KP.
Thanks, you made my day :(

There is one thing I need to add. I was not able to access iCloud. It seems that access to iCloud is based on your smbios. If Apple thinks you have an older Mac, it might deny you access to iCloud. There is a simple work-around.

Get Chameleon Wizard and just change the serial number. You do that in the left side column. Start Chameon Wizard, SMBIOS->Edit then select the circular arrow on the left (next to the word 'select') Next click on both 'Randon' boxes and then click on 'Copy'. Save the file. You might need to reboot and done. You should now access iCloud

I had macpro3,1 as my type and got the kernel panic many times. It did boot 10.7.2 once and then after updates i had to restart and I got the panic. I have no idea why lion hates the 3,1 mac pro so much.

Working fine here, just made sure I removed /System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ApplePolicyControl.kext before boot

I had the same issue. I booted from my "Recovery System" and reinstalled the update from there.
After that I got a lot of KP trying to boot.

In my case, the KP was solved just using a SMBios.plist properly configured... like magic the OS X booted up without any issue...


KP solved... Them I had problems w/ iCloud, that was related w/ SMBios.plist too... Fix: I used one of the chameleon releases which has iCloud Fix + a SMBios plist w/ a valid serial number made w/ Champlist.app...
If you need any explanations on how I made iCloud work, read this: http://www.insanelym...p...t&p=1760215

I think that infinite while loop fix was first proposed by netkas, when he instructed us to remove AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext

Am using KakeWalk - and I had successfully updated to 10.7.2 by having the Terminal delete the policy next. Upon boot, it hangs at some bluetooth chi controller something.

Well - somehow, working. Perhaps a changed SMBIOS.plist helped. From MacPro 3,1 it is now an iMac 11,1. :)
