    3 months ago i brought can iMac (new) with Yosemite installed when i switched it on i installed El Capitan but now some of my peripherals don't work properly,and sometimes i can not login the password box fills itself i have to physically shut it down.

    As i didn't uninstall Yosemite is it in a partition and can i retrieve it or is it more complicated than that.

    I had Time Machine but reformatted the drive to start new.

    Also if i have to backup will my photo's go back in the same order or as 1 folder

    BEFORE you start any attempts of OS install, perform a full Time Machine backup.

    You can install Yosemite with internet recovery

    Press Command and R and when your Mac starts, this will initiate a recovery.
