Is the update still stuck at 90%?

If it hasn't moved for several hours, you will need to press and hold the power button to restart the MacBook.

Reply back and let me know if the issue is now resolved?

Tried press and hold power button. Did not resolve issue
Mac Support Specialist: Pete, Computer Engineer replied 7 months ago

How long did you hold the power button for?

Try holding it for at least a minute until the MacBook powers off.

Was the update still stuck at 90% and did not not move past that point?
Remove the battery, disconnect the power cord and any other cords, then press and hold the power button for 1 minute again to fully discharge it.

Reconnect the battery and power cord and then try starting it up again.

Let me know if that works?

I could not view your answer as my laptop was not working. However the advice you sent was not what was required. I contacted apple who pointed me in the correct solution to my issue. No need to disconnect battery. Software glitch was resolved by recovering and then reloading software. I have cancelled my membership to Just answer.

Ok, glad to hear you got it resolved!

Have a happy and prosperous new year :)
Pete.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
