What can I do with it? (after shoving it up my ass, obviously).

OS X no longer supported on it, thinking it might make a nice Arch machine or something.

Forgot to say it has a 512gb SSD installed and 4GB ram.

>>58526089
Actually I had El Capitan, the second newest macOS, installed on mine. Updated from 10.6 through the App Store. It had 4GB RAM but a normal HDD so everything was slow.

>> No.58526206

>>58526123
it ain't selling for shit without an os

OP put sierra on it, check out dosdude1.com/sierrapatch.html

i suppose i can upload an image of a 8GiB usb drive with the os installer and patcher on it, i have one somewhere

wait so how does this work? just sign up for a developer account and access the download file and burn it to usb? How do I do this from a linux machine or a windows machine incase I want to make one of those machines into mac machines?

I have a pretty good
i7
2g vram gpu thing
16gig ram
512 gig ssd

mactop that I want to put to use. I've just been using it as a keyboard and xbox base. My sister left like three laptops that I can't use because she won't give up the info. They're all not old.

Use a patch to be able to install sierra on it then dual boot to w/e you want.

Make sure to clean out the thermal paste and replace

>> No.58526523

>>58526494
so ifyou want to install sierra on it you must be able to access the osx installed on it already? Or am I missing something? Patch the usb installer?

What if I have one of the 2014 pro retina bullshit macs. It would be nice to have another computer for regular use.

If I sound desperate that's because I sound desperate.

Alright so if osx is no longer supported on it that means I can't get into nor can I get anything out of it as it is. Therefore I want to bring in a bootable medium to install a functioning OS and, hopefully, remove the dysfunctioning OS or replace it with a functioning version of itself.

Is this possible? I just learned I could sell this thing for parts and come out with like a grand or something but I'd still rather use it to make stuff with.

>> No.58526686

>>58526653
El Capitan werks if you want the easy app store way. Supports modern software and still gets security updates. Also: You can try recovery mode if you can't login to os x. Press cmd + R after startup chime to access recovery mode.

did you even read the fucking thread

>> No.58526710

>>58526541
wow is that really you

also, I haven't turned it on because I also haven't bought another charger for it because I couldn't use the OS since it's my sister's old computer. She also left an old HP thing with an i3 and a p4 something or other and some tablets ( left for uni ) but those aren't as troublesome. I just need to replace the power controller for the laptop and the p4 just needs new ram and or a graphics card for loading the higher resolution imagery we have now.

Again, I could just use as a base for my keyboard or xbox like I was, sell the parts, or boot from it and put it to use. These specs aren't bad at all. I could play league from it.

Doesn't matter, you'll still get the best battery life, temp control and performance with it. install Xcode and MacPorts and upgrade with that.

Install some older version with a DVD with a image off tpb and than upgrade to Sierra if WiFi works, if not stay with Mavericks or Yosemite, El Shit is a fucking mess.
