|OS X 10.7.1 on Core2 Duo Updated Macs (Mini, iMac)|
(Reader mails from owners of Core 2 Duo upgraded earlier Minis/iMacs - some may have been concerned that 10.7.1 may break that or recreate the (deleted) "/System/Library/CoreServices/PlatformSupport.plist" file.)
"Lion Server 10.7.1 update on CoreDuo to Core2Duo upgraded (Mini) works!
I have a CD mini upgraded to C2D (Core2Duo) that I installed 10.7 (I also installed the server app) using the "install lion from a compatible machine to the HD for a CD upgraded to C2D mini" (and deleting the above plist.).
Today I upgraded to 10.7.1 Server - no need to re-delete the plist file as it is not recreated in the server update. I can't speak for the non-server update but I doubt it would be any different.
And an earlier mail from a (socketed) iMac w/C2D CPU swap:
"About 10.7.1 update (on C2D upgraded iMac)
I just wanted to let you know that is safe to upgrade to 10.7.1 for those "Core2 Duo upgraded" Macs with Lion.
I installed Lion on my 20" white iMac (using the destination disk mode hack and removing PlatformSupport.plist before rebooting) and I have just installed 10.7.1 without problems.
Regards, Luca P"
