After accepting an upgrade reboot from the App Store for an upgrade to High Sierra, my MacBook Pro retina 13 is stuck on the Apple Logo after the installation of this upgrade.

What do I do now?

A reinstall of the OS from recovery leads to the same hang. :( Have a look

  • Tried Internet Recovery?

  • Had you re-formatted to APFS? If so, then you will probably have to totally reformat to HFS+ & start over.

    You're really not being very forthcoming... anyway, nuke & pave, reformat, install clean OS, update to Sierra, recover from backup.

There shouldn't be an option in the App Store to upgrade to High Sierra, as it is still in beta. My guess is that you opted into the beta and there are still bugs to work out. You might want to reformat from a previous backup.

    Never opted for any beta inclusion. Fpr some reason, it got trickled down to me. As it showed up in my app store updates
