    The machine was working perfectly on whatever version el Cap it came with. Couple hours ago I did the latest security update 10.11.3. Trying to restart and it goes as far at the white apple logo---crashes when the progress bar gets half way. Will not boot to safe mode--only can get to recovery mode. Can't even go to safe mode using the terminal.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    Got things up and running again. From Recovery Mode I did the Restore From time Machine. Backed up to day before yesterday. El Cap is back down to 10.11. Looks like everything is still there and sleep/starts/restarts fine.

    Think I'll stay away from 10.11.3.
