Maybe it is 'conflicting inputs' confusing the OS or something. But at least it isn't broken. That would suck. I know having just bricked a Wii U doing an update.
Thank for all the input though folks. I'm learning this Mac stuff slowly but surely.
Edit - And just when I had given up on USPS today for the VGA adapter I ordered they knock on the door.--
