OSX Time Machine Restore Issue
Posted on 2013-11-06
Recently upgraded my macbook air to Maverick then ran into a myriad of issues with final cut pro. Spent 10+ hours researching and noticing a trend with other final cut pro x users having to roll back to osx lion.
When I had OSX Lion 10.8 , I created multiple backups via time machine. Last week, decided to upgrade to OSX Maverick 10.9. Everything went without a hitch until I started using FCP X.
Restarted laptop and loaded OSX Recovery - selected Time-Machine restore, pointed to external hard drive , selected most recent restore point (Note: shows "OSX V 10.8)
Restoring was complete (100%) but stuck at gray screen with spinning circle. So far its been 6 hours with no joy.
Now, I am trying a second time but selecting a different restore point to see if this might work.
Could the issue reside in the fact I upgraded to OSX Maverick and restoring to OSX Lion be the issue?
Any assistance is appreciated, thank you.
