Apple did roll out the Thunderbolt Software Update 1.2 just yesterday, although there are reports of the update causing its fair share of issues with hidden gremlins within the code, resulting in users tearing their hair out – feeling frustrated and all. Apple might not be aware of the situation though, where the Cupertino-based company did mention that the update “adds support for the Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter,” although many folks who have applied the update also ran into subsequent problems surrounding boot failures and other related problems such as kernel panics, stalled boot screens, or “unexpected error” notices. Are you one of the unlucky few? So far, discussions made online did point to possible solutions, although there is no blanket solution issued just yet. It seems that reinstalling OS X Lion does fix the complication, and hopefully the bandied solution of reinstalling the Mac OS X 10.7.4 Combo Update will also help the situation.
