Netkas method of updating to 10 5 5 hilary duff dating anyone
I also found a non working 2006 1.5Ghz Core Solo that needed some TLC and would not power up.
Turns out it had been opened up several times before and had hardware that was not seated correctly.
Netkas method of updating to 10 5 5
A socketed CPU is a huge plus, although at some point future CPUs will not be compatible (and may use a different socket), but in the meantime it's a nice change to be able to use standard (high volume/commonly available) Intel CPUs for upgrades.
(And over time, CPU Prices drop as intel releases faster/later models.) For owners that swapped in a Core 2 Duo CPU, the original tip for Lion dev previews is reported to still work - I. Install lion on a drive connected to a supported mac (Target Disk Mode, FW, etc) and then delete the (hidden) "/System/Library/Core Services/Platform Support.plist" file.
I had the external drive partitioned into 3 partitions.
Partition 1 was used to install 10.7 and reboot the Mac Book. I did not install 10.7.5 as I had read that some mac mini systems did not like this update so I felt I would ignore it for now.
Since I had an extra 1.83ghz Core 2 Duo CPU laying around I decided to upgrade the CPU.
