Updating firmware on macbook pro
It's just rather slow, creaky and won't run the latest version of LPX now. My machine was a real bargain as it's got 32GB of RAM and only cost me £600 reconditioned. However, as it stands, I won't be able to run mac OS 10.14 Mojave because my processor does not support the Metal Graphics layer. Logic Pro 9 Master Pro and X certified Pro Tools 10 & 11 Certified Operator2 x 3.06 Intel Six-Core 16 GB RAM, Logic 10.4.1, 10.13.4., UA Apollo2012 i7 MBP Logic 10.4.1, 10.13.4 add to what triplets said, pick yourself up a 4,1 or 5,1 SOOO cheap to get on fleabay even...
and upgrades will get you very current and very powerful for very little.
To navigate to it after installing XCode, simply go to the following path and launch the application: /Developer/Applications/Utilities Create a Mavericks (or Mountain Lion/Yosemite) bootable USB drive using the modified installer we’ve just made.
A good step-by-step account of this process for creating a Mavericks USB installer is outlined at at least the same version of the OS you just downloaded (Example: Mavericks 10.9.4) and then plug your Mac Pro’s hard drive into this computer externally (use Target Disk mode or put your Mac Pro hard drive in an external enclosure).
After all, this was a genuine Mac Pro and not a hackintosh build.
When the installer finishes, replace the 3.5” drive into your Mac Pro (if moved to an external enclosure) and boot normally.You will see a white screen with no apple logo for approx.15 seconds, upon which the computer will go into verbose mode and you will see it dumping unused Kernel extensions.Just like anyone else who frequents Low End Mac, I wanted to get more value out of my Apple hardware.Before going further into detail, I would like to give special thanks to Mac Rumors forum user “Tiamo”.
