Usually, when doing an update, it gives you the option to immediately restart or keep work and restart later. If you choose the second option and then shut down, under normal circumstances, it should finish installing the updates in my experience. If you cannot, then it might be problem with the update. The other overall way to install updates is to manually download and install them.

You can find those updates on Apple's download page. Here is the page for Mac OS X updates: As to why the problem is happening, it could be a corrupted update (i.e.

Corrupted somehow during the download), your Mac OS installation is corrupted, or maybe just some preference is corrupted. For the first, you can try downloading the updates that the Mac OS says you need from the link above and see if they will download and install.

For #2 or #3, the first thing to try would be create another admin user account and see if the things work better there.or first logout of the current user account and then try restarting. Next you could try doing Verify/Repair Disk Permissions or the Disk itself using Disk likely won't do much, but it is worth a try. The ultimate option would be to re-install the Mac OS.but let's try other things before we get to that.

How To Restart Mac Pro

BTW, what version of the Mac OS are you using? I have the exact same problem. Found this forum post when trying to search google for answers. I haven't been able to update anything for almost 6 months now. I'm on a 2010 macbook pro with OSX 10.6.8 as well. Most of the updates that you download directly from the apple website still force you to restart at the end of the installation process. It won't let me click out at the end window or shut down.


Whenever I try to restart- manually or through the update process- my icons disappear as if it were about to restart but then it just gets stuck on the background image. If i manually shut down by holding the power button the install never completes. I literally waited 4 hours a few weeks ago to see if it would ever just load and restart on its own but it didn't work. This is starting to drive me crazy!

I noticed that Mavericks is free on the app store. Any idea if upgrading from SL to Mavericks would fix this? To the OP (noviceny)- You haven't updated your post at all since last month so I hope that means you fixed the problem.? Any advice for me? Edited by davebains, 08 May 2014 - 03:24 PM.

My MacPro3,1 has a chronic problem restarting every time. I have several start up volumes, running 10.5, 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8, plus a couple of backups to those, on four different internal hard drives plus a bootable external hard drive. After the chime I get a grey screen and the Apple logo (and spinning gear) never appear attempting to restart on any volume.

I accidentally discovered that it will restart promptly by holding down the C key immediately after the chime. Sometimes I also have to disconnect the USB cable on the face of the tower that feeds several devices until the desktop appears. Pressing the C key is supposed to enable a 'Start up from a bootable CD, DVD, or USB thumb drive (such as OS X install media).'

Zapping the PRAM, AKA 'Reset NVRAM', with Option-Command-P-R seemed to work just once to fix the problem, but once was all. I haven't checked under a safe boot. Whether this kluge works for anyone else would be a most interesting piece of information. I fixed a computer with this same problem yesterday.


Look in the list of updates and check for an update to Apple Software Update. Install that first. If you see an update for Appstore, update that second. Then try the other updates.

If that does not work, you can delete these files: /Library/Preferences/ /Library/Preferences/ByHost/ (XXX is some number) /Library/caches/ (delete the folder) Thank you so much girlguru! I created an account on this website just to be able to post and let you know that your post helped me fix my problem. Grateful for your willingness to share how you fixed that computer.
