I've spent the last 2 days trying to install Mavericks on my MacBook 4,1. It is from Early 2008. It is unsupported, but I would like to install Mavericks on it. Is there a workaround for bypassing the system check or just generally getting it to install?
- SFOTT (found out it's for Macs that have 32-bit EFI and/or processors; I have 64-bit versions of both)
- Making a plain USB installer by using DiskMaker X (fails at the prohibitary (⊘) symbol when booting)
- Doing SFOTT on a partition on the internal HD (same result as SFOTT)
Oh, and if you need it, here are hardware specifications:
- MacBook 4,1; Early 2008
- 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
- 160 GB internal HD
- 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
- Intel GMA X3100 144 MB
- 64-bit EFI and processor
- Current OS is Mac OS X 10.7.2 (11C74)
And one more thing: I don't want to give up trying.
