    iMac White Screen After update 10.10.1

    I tried to update my 2010 iMac to 10.10.1, but all I have after the restart is a white screen. (My 2010 MacBook Pro updated to 10.10.1 without problems).

    I have not started to try and fix this other than rebooting.:(

    Update: I rebooted my iMac and held the shift key down for a long time. The iMac finally made it to my logon screen. I logged in and then my iMac went back to installing the 10.10.1 update. The install completed. I was then able to get on the iMac and download all my important stuff (just photos) to an external drive. However, I do have some issues with sporadic scrolling of my screen. This is especially bad in Google Chrome.

    10.10.1 a certifiable disaster for me

    It didn't outright kill my iMac Retina, but it ruined Internet connectivity. After the update, my Ethernet connection could get an IP address but could NOT get any Internet connectivity. After the upgrade, my WiFi couldn't even get an IP any longer.
    I tried rolling back from Time Machine, but that resulted in a badly corrupted display driver -- couldn't see much of anything on my secondary display and the primary (Retina) display was showing weird combinations of background wallpaper, a fragmented Dock, and smaller tiles of other wallpapers showing through the main background -- a very, very bad situation.

    I then restored the machine from the Internet (Apple servers). I'd never done that before, so I thought I'd have to start setting my computer up from scratch, re-run the Migration Assistant, reinitialize my Thunderbolt RAID, hassle with product keys for purchased software, etc.
    To my surprise and boundless joy, it restored the system files to 10.10 without disturbing any of my installed apps or documents. I'm so impressed, and so grateful that it didn't install the latest version of the OS which would have put me back at 10.10.1.
    I'll stay far, far away from 10.10.1. It seems as though it might be worse than iOS 8.0.1 was.

    Yeah, I surmise that the TM backup had a corrupted display driver in it. That never changes, so it's not something TM would recopy each time-- i.e. there's probably only one copy of the display driver in TM, and it's apparently corrupted. I'll have to erase the entire TM and start over. I'm sure it's good for individual files, but it's no good for a system restore.

    My 3-week-old Retina iMac experienced its first and only kernel panic so far at some point during the 10.10.1 update process. I clicked "INSTALL" then walked away. I came back later to find the "Your computer restarted because of a problem" message. It seems to be okay so far - no other problems.
