    Just getting around to the Public Beta of El Capitan, and it's been stuck in my "Purchases" in a "waiting" position for about an hour now.
    Any ideas?
    I can't remember how long this took for the Yosemite PB, but I don't think it took this long.

    Thanks!

    cancel the download, force quit the app store and safari, and go again

    That is very strange. Are you running Yosemite?
    Just give you laptop a restart and see if anything changes

    And if that doesn't work, try do a reset with PRAM, or VRAM (Hold down ALT + CMD + R + P while posting, it should boot two times and then it will start the boot process.. Then login... Open the installer and try it again!

    Hope it works out for ya'!

    Yes, I am running Yosemite, which I actually just got an update for. There's actually a Yosemite PB 4 download "waiting" also. I'll do a full restart and see if it helps.

    It must be a small glitch in your software
    Hopefully the restart does something, because if none of the for mentioned tasks work, my last theory won't be any fun :/ (i.e.: back up, start as new laptop, restore)

    Okay so I restarted, and under "Purchases," it was available for me click "download." So I did, and it's sitting at "waiting..." again. Let's see how it goes this time.

    Okay, I got a progress bar. Sheesh.
    I'll let you know how it goes in...1 hour and 5 minutes (apple time).
