I know it might sound like a pretty dumb question, but it's the truth, I have no idea whats going on. You see, my brother used this iMac since the times it had Snow Leopard. I have no idea what he did, undid, redid, or disdid (yeah, I just invented a new word there).
The point is now I use this iMac, and I was blissfully living without knowing some weird thing was going on... until today. I noticed
10.7.2 was released, cool, but it's not on Software Update, so I head to support.apple.com and download the client version manually.
It won't let me install.
Hmm... ok. I head to "About this Mac" and here is what I see.
Please notice the "Version 10.7.1". Should work, no? Well, I go to "More Info..." and, to my surprise, this is what I see.
Mac OS X Lion Server 10.7 (no 10.7.1) and not only that. Please note the build number. Turns out it apparently is the build version of Developer Preview 2. Nevertheless, I go to
/System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist and surprise! It says:
Yeah, thats another build version. It turns out it IS the build version of
10.7.1. So it is
Mmmmm... no. System Overview says
11A418 too. Half of my mac believes its one version, half believes its the other, and ultimately I can't install 10.7.2: Neither the Server Combo nor the Client Combo. Any ideas why this is happening? Suggestions? Or will I have to make a long distance call to my brother and wait like 4 hours for Lion to download and install agian? Any comments/suggestions welcome!
