    Just bought a new aluminum MacBook 2.0 GHz with the stock RAM from my local Apple Store on Saturday for my Girlfriend. I tried to update the software the first night on Dial up and the next morning the progress bar said, Configuring Installation. It was at the same point when I returned later in the afternoon.

    Today we had high speed internet installed and after I set up the AirPort base station I tried the update and it did the same thing.

    I repaired permissions through the disc utility and had the TechTool Deluxe CD give it a look over and no issues were found. I used the disc utility from the installation disc to be sure.

    The same update went just fine on my MBP.

    What can I do next?

    Thanks in advance and sorry if this is a re-post, I tried the search and went back ten pages in this forum just to be safe.

    Nevermind.

    Applecare to the rescue.

    The problem was that the updates were downloaded over dial-up.

    I was instructed to re-set the PMU then trash the update files from the library and download them again.

    All is fine now. Sorry to be a bother about this.
