Yes, doom is what I feel like right now! Last night I attempted to download and install the latest operating system from Apple known as El Capitan. It’ FREE. It’s supposed to be a simple process that’s fully automated. It killed my iMac! 😦
I tried everything I know to bring it back to normal but it’s stuck in a loop that’s inescapable, making the computer useless.
I did the normal things to troubleshoot the problem. I “Googled” it. Other people are having the same problem and nobody has a fix. I went to bed last night totally frustrated. If you reboot and try opening it in safe mode it won’t let you download a new copy in case the first was corrupted. That’s really stupid on the part of Apple. At this point I don’t know what to do. I have my Nexus 7 tablet that’s connected to the internet and I’ve been using it to try and find answers. There are none.
I can’t afford a new computer. I can’t afford much of anything having jusemptying my meager savings for the move to Uxbridge. I’ll start looking for a Mac or Apple store locally where I can bring my computer there in the hopes they can at least get me operational again. On how I regret loading that upgrade to El Capitan.
