    Hi all

    I grew impatient and bought ML and downloaded it onto my 2012 MBA 13"
    I opened the install file about 3 hours ago and it is stuck on
    "Preparing to install, Your computer will restart automatically"
    and the progress bar is stuck at about 5mm across!

    I have cancelled it and re-started the installer but it is stuck again at the same point...

    is my copy corrupted? do you reckon a fresh download of the installer would work?

    any help would be great!

    I will set it off tomorrow morning...

    I can't seem to get Caffeine to run as I was going to use that to stop my mac sleeping, but I guess I will just leave it
