    I tried to update the Thunderbolt Software Update 1.2 that release today, but it got error and force me to restart the computer. After restart i got the kernel panic and can't enter the OS anymore not even safe mode.

    ----------

    I have it restore to my backup and it working now but when i attempt to update the Thunderbolt software it happen again.

    I'm not certain if this is an issue unique to the crucial m4. Many people are complaining about it on the official apple macbook pro boards.

    I had the issue as well this evening. My Mac kept crashing after the kernel panic. Restored it using a fresh install of Lion and everything is back to normal. I have an early 2011 2.3ghz i5 model with 8gb of ram. No ssd here tho.

    It's the problem with the update itself i guess. Don't attempt to update it again until apple release a fix.

    Yeah I kind of figured that. I just ignored the update and pushed everything else through. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one effected by this lol.

    Add me to the list of people having kernel panic after installing the update. I have a early 2011 MBP and every time I turn on the computer, it gets the kernel panic. Hopefully Apple will fix this soon.

    Strange...8 month old MBP 17", went through first time without a hitch...But as posted, best avoided until Apple sort this out.

    How did you restore? Did it wiped your data?

    yep, wish i had not decided to do a software update last night... now, i have a useless block of aluminum. i'm going into the local apple store later today despite the fact that i know restoring from a backup seems inevitable.

    Add me to the list, the same thing. I believe reinstall is the best option.

    I used the info posted here. It'll give you some info on how to get your machine working right. I used the 3rd post from the top or as quoted below:

    As a final note, I didn't lose any of my data during the reinstall. Everything is as I had left it before the update.

    Looks like Apple has pulled the update from their schedule... I checked for new updates after my second resinstall of Lion and actually wanted to uncheck the Thunderbolt-update itself, but it's gone.

    Well, whatever, I don't have any Thunderbolt-gear anyways.
