    Hi all,

    I'm trying to run the El Capitan upgrade installer from my 2008 iMac 24 inch which is currently on Yosemite. My problem is that I have no working USB ports and only a Bluetooth keyboard. I can't for the life of me figure out how to click on the "Continue" button! Have tried all of keyboard shortcuts I can think of!

    Just wondered if anyone had any ideas?

    Many thanks
    Chris

    Your keyboard is working ? If the focus is on the upgrade window, try navigating with the arrow keys or tab key. Use enter or space to validate once the focus is on "continue"

    Thanks very much.

    I had to change the way the tab key worked from the Keyboard Shortcuts settings.
