Boot failure after security update

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I fired up my Mountain Lion VM this morning and found a 'Security Update' that said it would be automatically applied after 3 days when the computer is restarted. So, I opted to just install it now. Fortunately I took a snapshot before I clicked go. Now, when I start the VM, it gets stuck on the Apple logo and the spinning 'please wait' indicator.


Any ideas? If there's no fix for this, is there a way to stop it from installing this update automatically upon restart then?

UPDATE: Looks like this actually works, but take an inordinate amount of time to boot up after the update is applied. It took around 20mins to boot when I just left it sitting there while I did something else on the host. After the initial extended boot time, it boots normally.
