    HELP PLEASE!
    I downloaded el capitan from apple, but when the installer finished downloading and starting installing, it displayed the black screen with apple logo and the bar below, and after the bar was full, it remained in this state forever, and it never get in osx.
    I have to push the power button, I open it again, same thing again.
    I am not having a working computer now!

    Why it stuck?
    Is there a solution? What can I do?

    I need my mbp working even with yosemite, but I cannot get in!
    Please help me, as I am stuck out of my machine!

    Do you have the machine backed up with Time Machine
    Do a restart & hold down cmd + R That gets you to a page where you can choose to roll back your entire Machine using Time Machine

    I have a bootable superduper image, so I will restore my machine, thanks god, it is not a total destruction.
    I just don't know why it stuck, and if I ever will it be possible to upgrade to el capitan.
    I am a mac user for ten years, this is the first time with such problem.

    First time for me with problems as well. I am going to wait for the first update before trying again. There are enough people with this problem that I think (hope) Aplle will notice & address this issue

    If I don't install it now, it will be available in the future, an updated pack of the osx in app store, for downloading?
    I mean, I can omit this version now, and although I will see it the next days, someday in the future, it will disappear, and the new one will be available for downloading?

    On the "Purchases" Tab in the App store on the iMac I rolled back to Yosemite, I have Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks all showing available, & El Cap in updates, so no danger that this one will vanish. I imagine that when the update is released, then if you have not yet installed El Cap, the version of El Cap available for download in the Store will itself be updated to include the update, otherwise it would make little sense if part of that update was to fix a problem installing the OS. :)

    We have the same hope, but if anybody else knows for sure what happens, please assure us.
    For example, will it be shown with a new 'code' name-version number, or something discrete, in order not to avoid users' confusion?
