    I just downloaded the OS 10.1.5 (I know I'm a bit slow) but anyway I went to install it and it says my drive does not meet the requirements... I'm on an 800mhz flatscreen iMac with 41gb of free ram, and running 10.1.4 currently. I heard something about OSX updates can only be put on the first 8gb of the harddisk but how do I free up the first half of my harddisk? Please help me!
    thanks

    Do you mean 41GB of free disk space?
    Is your hard drive partitioned? If what you heard is true, I'm fairly sure what is means is that the file can only be installed from a partition that starts (or ends) before the 8192nd (or whatever) cylinder of the disk.

    Have you tried installing from Software Update?

    what version

    what version are you upgrading from? You may have to download the combined update (much larger file). You cant just jump to 10.1.5 from anything less than 10.1.4... I think.
