    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.
    Thanks

    repair permissions. check for any pending updates. try to download 10.6.8 combo and reinstall that.

    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!
