I just did a clean install of 10.1 on my computer, and now want to get it up to 10.1.5 via the combo update from the apple site. However, after I open the package and begin the installtion program, it tells me that I need tp update installer-and it won't install. Well, how can I update installer, if it won't let me installer something!?!?!?!?!? Any help would be greatly appriciated.I just did a clean install of 10.1 on my computer, and now I want to get it up to 10.1.5 via the combo update from the Apple site.

You probably need other updates installed before you can do the 10.1.5 update. Just use System Preferences's Software Update, it should recommend everything you need.

Or just go buy Jaguar, which would be much better solution.

You need security updates and etc, on the combo update site it will say what other updates you need.

I am having the same experience trying to update to 10.1.5. I downloaded those security updates, but when I try to install them, it asks which drive I want to install it on, and won't let me select my hard drive. This is very frustrating.

I know you will say, "Get Jaguar," but it's not in my budget right now. Any other solutions?

After you install the security update and Installer Update, install the combo update to 10.1.5, not the regular update to 10.1.5. The regular update works for computers with 10.1.4 instead of 10.1.

The combo update is located following the provided link:
Mac OS X Combo Update 10.1.5
