i have IMac 5,1 with Lion 10.7.5 OSX and in terminal i'm trying to use the command csrutil. I checked everywhere but didn't find the way to have and use it. The reason is that i would like to disable ( i know i have to do in recovery mode) to install windows 7 32bit( 64bit seems not possible) Last week i upgrade the HD to SSD of 1TB and RAM from 2 to 4gb and i used CarbonCopyCloner to clone the OSX but i lost the Windows partition that i would like to have again. Thank you in advance

    You Mac may be able to run 64 bit Windows 7 or 64 bit Windows 10. The only way to know if the Boot Camp drivers provided by Apple will work with 64 bit Windows is to try installing them. If interested, post a comment. – David Anderson Nov 13 '19 at 2:27

There isn't a csrutil command in macOS 10.7.

System Integrity Protection (SIP) was introduced in macOS 10.11, and the csrutil command is for modifying SIP.

More at OSXDaily about SIP in macOS 10.11 and later.
