To anyone who doubts or has questions of performance, running Theres 0 difference its just an arbitrary reason. Video will be uploaded soon, but just a short take on my basic use of the machine.

When the computer restarts, ask it to restart from the backup disk. Copy boot. I do not think so. The 2,1 boardid is Mac-FDA9, but you can check it yourself, by entering the folllowing command in Terminal. Kindest Regards Rafa.

Should I need a driver or a new card? A couple of things, though: I wanted to upgrade the server capabilities to allow bit development, but this may not be the path. I think that all those things you mentioned not sure about System Image Utility, but the rest I am sure are now part of the Server. You need to download Server from the app store.

I have problems restarting from the el capitan partition. It always restarts back from the lion one any thoughts?

The disk is OK, but you are not selecting it as your boot disk. Either go to your System Preferences, Startup Disk and ask to boot from the El Capitan disk, or when the system boots up, and you hear the boot sound, press the Alt key and hold it down until the system shows you all the bootable disks. Select the El Capitan one and see. Sometimes it does, sometimes not. Otherwise, booted perfectly from first time.

I recently 30 minutes ago updated to the latest version using the apple updater, it seemed to install fine but then rebooted into windows during the installation. Since then, I have been unable to boot OSX. I have another partition with windows 7 that still works fine, but I am no longer able to boot from either my main El Capitan drive, or the OSX recovery partition. I can select both in the booting screen, it goes black and stays that way for 5 seconds, then boots right back into Windows 7. Well, the updater is messing up with the boot.

Please read this:. Great guide! Everything booted up just fine. Any idea as to what could be causing this? Running I would suggest you start over with a new version of the OS downloaded and apply the changes on it. I rebooted and this time tried iTunes. I am not sure what to tell you. I never had such a problem.

Some questions:. Did you download Chrome from scratch? It is indeed weird. Have you re-downloaded the El Capitan installation file, the boot. If you have, I am terribly sorry, but I do not know what to tell you. Well, darn it! I am in the same boat as you are!!! I got myself a new used MacPro 1,1, hoping to duplicate my original setup.

Guess what? Same problem you are facing, the system starts, but hangs up after a while, on opening or using some programs. Did that, I updated to Still the same, the system hangs up after a while! Jon, I think I know the answer to your problems. Read the last few lines of the original article to understand how I reached that conclusion. Thanks for the clear guide. Actually we were still running Leopard on our Mac Pro 1. It started Have not tried it a lot as yet though, but internet, mouse, keypad, hp printer C all work as they should.

I also have an Nvidia Quadro FX 1. I am not sure if that card will work with the MacPro, never tried one. Lately, when I acquired my second MacPro, I faced a problem with the standard card, that used to come with the machine, but also with an Nvidia Quadro FX However, the same program works just fine with the GT. So there are some compatibility issues, for sure. I am waiting for another GR to come, to see if that will allow the new Pro to run Aperture, as the old one does.

Thanks for the Upgrade info, so easy to do, So easy to repair if an OS update trashes the I have made a folder on the desktop of Maybe the fact that you have boot camp installed is causing the issue?

Would using this technique keep my existing programs … meaning would they migrate to the new OS? Well, your old programs will still be on your old disk.

If I were you, I would make a copy of your original system disk to a new one, apply the El Capitan upgrade, then boot from the old disk again and apply the patch. Then you can try and boot from the patched disk. All your programs should remain intact. If your graphics card is supported by your current OS, I do not see a reason for it not to be supported by El Capitan.

Instead, I only see an installation directory called: I did boot from it just once the temp hackintosh just enough to get to the install menu then shutdown…. Do you mean run the installer , reboot when done , continue the installation while on the none MP system , complete it and only then reboot back to its prior OSX.? Yeah that was it. I now see the location and can change the files.

Yes, you have to run the installer, and allow it to finish, on the external disk. In that way, you have a full El Capitan disk that needs only to patch the files described above. Then you take that disk, install it in your MacPro and boot from it. Thank you very much.

    I replaced the black boot with the grey boot. Please follow the instructions, as they are given. But you have to do everything exactly as told. Boot your second computer not your Mac Pro exactly like you do normally. Install your SSD as an external disk on your computer. Replace boot. Redone the install now from the hackintosh optiplex Other cards will work; however the x is within the Max power draw spec, has nice out of the box driver support in Once it was all working I booted back into the Mac Mini and followed the instructions here:.
