thinkvantage rescue and recovery critical patch update - STUCK at 62% for a day!!

2008-11-30, 6:50 AM

Hi,

 

I was recently prompted by System Update that I need to immediately update my system of which Rescue and Recovery had a critical patch. I immediately started off the process. The downloads went off smoothly, but the installation of thinkvantage rescue and recovery critical patch is stuck and the overall progress shows 62%. There has been no change to this figure since the last 20 hours or so!!

 

Is there  anything I am missing?

 

Should I just discontinue the update? Or should I wait for few more hours? If I have to go with the second option, I can't stop myself from saying this is really frustrating piece of software in the system. One cannot wait for days for a critical sytem update installation!!!

 

Please advise,

Suddha Satta Ray

(running out of patience now!!!)

Helle ssray23,

 

don´t run out of patience!

 

Which patch do want to install? If the installation don´t work, then you should discontinue this process.

Here at my R60, SU shows a critical patch for download, even it´s installed since a long time.

 

Try this update later, at best after a fresh start of your system,

 

or leave it, if your system runs satisfactionally now.

 

@Mods_ May be this post should be located in thinkvantage section?

It's also possible that you have some type of security software that is blocking the installation of the update. Norton has been known to do this.
