Editor’s Notes: Well that was one of the most disconcerting upgrades I have performed in a while. After the first re-start, my primary monitor on my M1 16gb Mac Mini went crazy for about 3-4 minutes. I am using a pair of 27 inch IODATA LCD-271XD monitors, a Japanese market model, with the Mac mini, and while they normally perform quite well, this was just an old school, TV off air for the night, type of pattern that was rather glitchy.

After a few more minutes of waiting, the machine did finally re-boot and give the familiar Apple logo in the middle of the screen. However, the crazy way it upgraded is something Apple needs to take note of.

After a couple more re-boots, the familiar timer at the bottom of the progress bar appeared with 11 minutes to go. Then one more re-boot and we were back in business.
