Hello,

Is your Mac connected via wireless or wired?  If wired, can you tell if there is activity on the network port on the back of the Mac?  Yosemite is very large, I believe around 5 GB so if you have a slower connection it can take several hours.  Do you have any other devices on your network that are still able to access the Internet?
