My Mid 2014 MBP decided to install 11.2 Big Sur update yesterday evening. After rebooting, it stuck in the boot screen. Left it there overnight but nothing changed.
Then I force-powered off it and booted it in Safe Boot. It completed the update and Software Update shows I have 11.2. However, if I reboot to normal mode, it gets stuck in boot screen again.
Took a look to the logs but didn't see anything definitive.
Any help is appreciated.
- SMC clearing did not work.
- PRAM clearing did not work.
- OS Reinstall did not work.
- Moving 3rd party extensions out of
kextcache didn't work either.
- There's a
/System/Volumes/Updatefolder with success logs.
I still don't know what the problem is.
