I have an early MacBook Pro, 2GB ram and have recently upgraded my hard-drive to 320GB.

I installed 10.5 but after downloading OS update it will not install and stays at about 10% of the blue indicator.

Any advice appreciated.

Try this Matt.

Click on Software Update, and when window opens with the update details, go to the menu bar and select 'Download Only;. The update will be in the Downloads folder.

Disconnect any peripherals other than the keyboard/mouse, antivirus etc if any and run Repair Permissions in Disk Utility. Open the Downloads folder from Home, drag the update to the desktop and double click to install.

When finished run Repair Permissions again. Be patiewnt Repair Permissions takes about twenty minutes and looks like it is not going to work as the speed bar NEVER seems to move but ject let it be.

Let's know how you go. If no joy download direct from the Apple website.

Thanks for the tips Harry,

first method didn't work so I went to Apple website as you suggested and loaded 10.5.1, then .2, then .3 and finally .4

All working fine now, thanks again.
