    My install has been stuck for 2.

    the progress bar is at 50% (grey background with only Apple logo).

    What should I do?

    I had Mavericks fully updated on MBA late 2010 before proceeding to the install today


    Is it safe to reboot on that screen?

    (Hold power button down)

    Same thing happened to me... I held the Power button until it shut down, then restarted. I had to do it twice, then it finally completed.

    Oh good #

    I thought I had lost countless hours of restoring #

    Just did the same thing.

    It went to the install screen now and says 17minutes remaining. Good thing I have a couple hours left before bed haha

    Yosemite intallation stuck

    I started installing Yosemite and the instalation program asked to close all applications I pressed yes and continue. Now it's been stuck for about three hours. I got a blank screen with a spinning wagon Wheel. Ca I reboot pressing the power button? Is it safe?
