Just wanted to let everyone know Apple just released OS 10.8.3 which has bootcamp support for 3 TB drives and Windows 8 support. I've been looking forward to this for quite a bit!

Cheers. :apple:

I'm curious to know, with this official release, where does this leave us who performed the hack from this thread https://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=16996485#post16996485 ? do we need to trash everything and start fresh?

Cheers.

If I performed the hack, I'd backup everything, trash it all, format, reinstall and restore from time machine and manually copy back the partition data onto the OS X partition.

You may need to do a partition copy for your Windows or something, then restore it after.

I was afraid this might be the answer, no problem with Mac though, trying to get windows to play ball is the hard part. the price early adopters have to pay!!! thanks Raima

Cheers.

Anyone know if this new release will allow Windows 7 Bootcamp installs w/ the 3tb drive? No need for Windows 8 and I've got the W7 license.

I am still on 10.8.2

I click software update and saw the 10.8.3 update but after the restart I am still on 10.8.2

Now I am not seeing the update to 10.8.3 every time I click software update.

I have the new iMac 27" late 2012 model 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7

What is going on!? I want to be able to bootcamp to windows 8 so I can game but I need to be on 10.8.3 since they added support to bootcamp 3TB

That's strange.. Did you let the updater finish and let it restart? I updated easily then it went to a screen that said applying updates and the computer restarted with 10.8.3.

Where are you seeing that it's still 10.8.2? There are reports that "About this Mac" shows 10.8.3, but Finder still reports 10.8.2.

When I click the apple logo on the top left I see that I'm still on 10.8.2

I've updated to 10.8.3 twice but it doesn't show to be updated.

Now I am not seeing the update again to start over.

Just stuck on 10.8.2 for now

Louie, did you try the Combo Update? If you or anyone else who didn't know this already, the standard update via 'Software Update...' just gives you files that are different than your current OS. When you download the Combo Update, it downloads ALL the affected files. It's much larger, but it can often solve problems when the standard update doesn't work. Here's a link to the 10.8.3 Combo Update: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1640

Yeah I tried that but i got an error of some sort.

What I did was purchased the mountain lion app from the App Store and it updated to 10.8.3 without needing to restore.

So basically I've just spend $20 to update to 10.8.3.
