    Hi,

    I started updating from OS X 10.6.8 to OS X Yosimite!
    Of course, as I started the download, I didn't look that
    Yosimite is 5.16 GB! It is already half hour, how much
    longer should I wait?

    Thank you, kind regards,

    igmolinav : ) !!!

    What is the problem? Your download taking too long or has the download finished and the actual installation is taking too long?

    Hello,

    The download has already taken forty good minutes
    and even longer! On the lower right hand corner
    there is a little icon that shows the word 'Downloading'!
    Under the icon, there is thin a 'bar' that is getting 'filled'
    It shows more or less the progress with the download,
    and it's got so far only between one third and one half
    of the download thru! That is somewhat slow, isn't?

    Kind regards,

    igmolinav : ) !!!

    This is your service provider and has nothing to do with Apple.

    Just let it download in the background. It's a large file and will take a while.

    There is nothing to stop you getting work done while it downloads.

    It won't start installation until the whole file is downloaded.

    When you click on your Launchpad, it will show how much you have downloaded.
    On the App Store window itself, click on the downward arrow button on the top right corner, it will show you the same info + how much time remaining.
    Hope it helps.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your answers : ) !!!

    It finally downloadesd! It was
    interesting to use speedtest. I
    think my connection was a bit
    slow, downloading at some 2
    mbps. Launchpad was for some
    reason unavailable in my
    computer.

    Kind regards,

    igmolinav : ) !!!
