Lion Recovery Update

Send Article to a Friend

It’s not a small download, but all Apple says about the Lion Recovery Update is that it improves Lion Recovery and fixes a bug related to Find My Mac when using a firmware password. Hopefully you won’t have to rely on Lion Recovery, which enables you to perform some troubleshooting and to reinstall Lion by booting from a special hidden partition on your hard disk. Software Update is the easiest way to get and install this update. (Free, 431.91 MB)
