    Just installed this patched and rebooted, been stuck for 20 minutes at the white screen. Not sure if I should let it keep going or hard cycle power. Any thoughts?

    Also, I had my thunderbolt raid connected while patching, should those be removed? Figured it should be safe to leave connected....

    I left everything connected, including my 4-disk Thunderbolt Pegasus J4 when I did the update. It was pretty fast throughout the update process, so I think you have another problem in play. If it were me, I would power off and allow it to reboot. Hopefully, the update would restart and finish normally. If not, once it reboots I would hope the updater would detect that the TB update was still needed, and you could start the process over again.

    Just my $ .02 ....

    Wound up rebooting, it still showed the patch not applied. Re-ran time machine tonight to be sure and will try again tomorrow...
