    Hey all, forgive my panic, but I am a bit worried. I did a quick search with mroogle, but nothing came up.

    I just jumped on board with the new 10.5.5 on my macbook 2.2 santa rosa. However, the installer hung on "Running Installer Script". I had to force it to power off, and I started it up again. It started, restarted by itself, and then booted up fine. It now reports that it is running 10.5.5. Is it ok? How would I tell? Should I do anything?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    I have the same issue too. I started the installation yesterday afternoon and its still froze like that. I'm gonna keep searching the net to find our answer to this Apple :apple: update.

    At the moment another person asked the same question we have in the Official Apple Forums. Here
    http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1712877&tstart=0

    I will be monitoring that apple forum post so my Mac can be fixed asap.

    If it were I, I'd download the combo update from Apple and install it. Can't hurt anything.

    Well, that's what I did, and that's what others did on the apple forum. All seems fine...I hope it stays that way. Thanks everyone for the help!

    This seems a stupid question but what is the combo update and where do i find it? on the apple downloads site i can only find the server combo and the full 10.5.5 update.

    I had the same on my iMac. should i install the combo (if i find it)?

    The combo is just a large bundle of the previous updates plus 10.5.5, it wont hurt to install it

    I ran the 10.5.5 updater via apple software updater on my 24" iMac 2Ghz.

    Downland went fine, installer script ran, re-boot started, then I got the "grey screen" and it froze, I let it sit for 30-45 minutes, thinking sometimes something firmware/etc is being done and I did not want to disturb if so.

    Finally, I reached the back power on/off button and pushed it for 2 seconds and let go, upon shutdown/re-boot the grey screen was there 20 seconds, then the apple logo showed and I breathed a sigh, rest of start-up proceeded.

    As of this morning everything working well.
