Just bought my first iMac (intel i5) and it won't complete the Software Update of Mac OS X (2.06GB). After multiple failed attempts of downloading over WIFI, I've plugged in via ethernet. Download freezes every time. Why?
Bootup holding CMD+r, or the Option/alt key to boot from the Restore partition & use Disk Utility from there to Repair the Disk, then Repair Permissions.
Thanks so much....problem resolved!
Great news, thanks!
