Even the world’s most advanced operating system cannot escape the deadly bug issue it seems, according to a bunch of Mac users who have decided to take the plunge to upgrade their system to Mac OS X 10.7 Lion which was released just yesterday morning. All the error messages are not the same, being of different variety to keep some folks out there scratching their heads quizzically. There is a thread over at the official Apple Support Communities which points to an issue where users are required to choose the disk on where they want OS X Lion installed. If one selects the Macintosh HD as the install destination, some are met by the error message, “This disk cannot be used to start up your computer.”
Apple Support has informed users affected by this issue to fire up Repair Disk Permissions and perform a “clean” repair, but folks who took that advice to heart claimed that the Mac App Store says that Lion has already been “Installed,” which doesn’t make sense, really.
Are you one of those who are affected, or is Lion roaring on your Mac right now without throwing a hissy fit?
