I went to the about this mac window and what I see in it is some numbers (instead of the name of the model) and its just looking as if it was missing some info in there... really weird... Do I need to update my OS X ?

I click apple icon, about this mac and it displayed the window. So in this window instead of the OS name on the very top I have six digit number. Underneat I have version 10.10 and a while ago it showed some additional build number in (). Under this I should have iMac and the model info in () and all I have is just "iMac". In Processor I have "4 GHz Intel Core i7". and then the rest of the info follows. Just bit weird but installing and update as we speak will update shortly if its fixed or not.

Heres the screenshot.

It's only this window that is not displaying the info correctly. Everything else looks ok i.e display, storage, memory and so on.

Maybe it's a slightly new revision of the iMac 5k... you might see that number change to it's proper long name when the 10.10.3 update comes out?

Definitely not normal. Try an OS reinstall.

I only turned it on for the first time, but sure will try to reinstall and we'll see. Thanks for the tip!

Try changing to another language, say Canadian English or something. There was a thread about (aboot in Canadian) this after upgrades.

Turns out the senior tech advisor had the same issue and did not realise it. However the issue with the disk permision is a hardware issue and I was advised to bring it back to the retailer for a replacement… damn you apfel...

Now the apple guy did see my desktop with some kind of program I had to install...

Rang the retailer - as it CTO I might wait 6 weeks for a replacement.

Seriously, I get this everytime I update my OS:

"User differs on “private/var/db/displaypolicyd”; should be 0; user is 244.Group differs on “private/var/db/displaypolicyd”; should be 0; group is 244.Repaired “private/var/db/displaypolicyd”"

I would not worry about it in the slightest.

Ok thanks, I've spent 2 hours on the phone told I have to bring it back... I will no longer go to apple in case of issues but consult them here first. Thanks again.
