    Heres my problem:
    When I go to download yosemite from the app store I press the GET button and then it grays out and nothing happens. All other things I click GET then a download button appears and in one click its downloaded.

    Heres my specs: old I know but it was very expensive and still should work

    Model Name: MacBook Pro mid 2008 running 10.6.8
    Model Identifier: MacBookPro4,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 3 MB
    Memory: 2 GB
    Bus Speed: 800 MHz
    Boot ROM Version: MBP41.00C1.B03
    SMC Version (system): 1.27f3
    Serial Number (system):
    Hardware UUID: 8D0EBDB3-DAC7-520C-AD7B-B2A7D1A1291D
    Sudden Motion Sensor:
    State: Enabled

    Heres what Ive tried:
    Booted in "safe boot" didnt help
    Backed up, restored, cleaned, got rid of Power-PC apps, still nothin
    Called apple and the best suggestion was "get better internet connection", Ive got 15mbps so that should not be an issue especially when I can download anything else
    Not close to a mac store so thats not an option either

    Is there any other place besides the app store where I can download OS X 10.10? That would solve it I think.
    If anybody has help for me Id appreciate it.

    Hey man thanks for the ideas unfortunately the GET button still grays out when I click on it. Can I jump straight to 10.10.1 from 10.6.8 or do I need to get to 10.10 first? Beyond frustrating!
