Hello everyone,
yesterday I upgraded from 10.7.3 to 10.7.4 via software update.
It 'seemed that everything was fine but on reboot after the update the pc freezes and the message here is Mac OS version:
Not yet Set. I tried to boot with-s,-f or -v but it always stops at the same point. Can anyone help me?
I attach the full screen with block for clarity.
Thanks

Hi iFIRE, i tried the flag but osx stop at the same point and the same error. So I connect the hd to another system and i used kextwizard on the hd. I reconnected the hd but with no result, same error. Any other ideas ?

Tried , same error.
So, I reconnect to the other system and removed /System/Library/Caches/* files and restart but always the same error.

Download Combo Update 10.7.4 and install this for your disk in other system, repairPermissions/Diskutility and boot with -f -v

Check also permissions are enabled for root drive, 755 and owner is system:wheel (if changing, do not set these recursively or apply to any sub folders, only to / ) , also check updated mach_kernel at / and reinstall Chameleon to drive, then maybe rebuild cache manually via terminal, if using a different mac to do it: sudo touch /Volumes/your HD name here/System/Library/Extensions/ or if HD is in same one your booted from: sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions/ add to boot flag: kernel=mach_kernel UseKernelCache=No -f -x -v

If after iFire suggestions, then mine, and still don't work, your skewed

try this app for rebuild your DISK in other System, this work for me, when finish rebuild, reinstall the boot loader for the Disk, now put in your PC and boot the machine.

fyi, diskutil not available when booting -s unless you manually load necessary modules first, better of just doing it from the installer's diskutility. Anyway, B4 you couldn't boot at all, so would like to know what you did to get to the point of trying to run combo update again?
