    software update
    Help! I've managed to download the new software update of 356mb that was recommended, but it doesn't seem to configure. I'm on dial-up and it took me forever to download this big update. After it downloaded it said it would have to restart in order to configure ok so I did that now all I get is this configuring box that doesn't seem to go anywhere and I can't do any other work while this is happening. At least I was able to use my mac while I downloaded the update but I can't use it while it is configuring and like I said the configuring doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Will it take me as long to configure as it did to download? and another thing I noticed when it is configuring, after I restarted the computer, it is no longer on the internet according to my phone line. So does it have to be on the internet to configure? Can anyone help??????

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB flash memory, 3.3GHz, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra beta.
    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    Dial up is a huge problem for a download that size. Many ISP disconnect after a two hour limit and I think using the computer whilst it downloaded is not a recommended thing. Personally don't think could have done a download that size when on dial up sorry joan.

    Hi rman, I downloaded the recommended OSX upgrade of 356mb, but now I can't seem to configure it on dial-up.

    Cool
    I am trying to figure out what you down loaded. What version of the OS are you running?
