  1. “Addresses formatting issues with certain drives used with Time Machine (specifically, single-partition MBR drives greater than 512 GB in size as well as NTFS drives of any size and partition scheme).”

    Does that mean time machine will work with a share that isn’t HFS+? So I can back up to a linux box now?

  2. I got stuck in a bizarre Setup Assistant loop when I restarted after installing the update. Setup Assistant would keep restarting no matter how many times I filled out my info. Got kind of pissed at Apple for releasing a buggy update since reinstalling would have wasted most of my evening.

    Thankfully, I found a solution online. If any of you experience this problem, start the computer in Safe Mode by holding on to the Shift key when booting up. It takes some time so be patient. When you get to the login screen, don’t log in. Hit the Back button then the Restart button and your Mac will reinstall the update properly before restarting.

    I’m still having a dirt slow connection to shared drives on my local network, which I unfortunately depend upon for work.There doesn’t seem to be a rhyme or reason to it, as my boss who has the same MBP and configuration as me has no issues. He can browse files at least ten times faster.
