The laptop wont go past snow leopard and i'm stuck...
I managed to use macpostfactor to get it to mountain lion 10.8.5 but anything past that and it rejects the install.
I then thought i could wipe the hard drive, put windows 10 on the drive with a fresh install and the create a mac partition, effectively creating a hackintosh on a mac ?
I successfully installed windows 10 on the mac no problem, everything worked great, so i wiped it again to do a fresh install. But between me wiping the drive and getting round to installing everything again i lost the usb drive with windows 10 on it and i dont have a back up usb drive.
So my question is this,
Can i install either OSX 10.11 or higher natively without windows ?
Can i indeed install windows and then partition the drive to have a mac partition that is 10.11 or higher ?
Would also like to know if i could do either of these without a usb ? Its not a huge deal to buy a new one i would just rather not if i could save the cash.
I do have 2 extra laptop hard drives which i can format using sata leads from my main pc and i also have a lacie 500 gig usb hard drive.
I know its a weird question and complicated for the sake of being complicated but if you know the answer, chances are you are like me and thats just your style!
Thanks in advance everyone!
