The macOS Mojave desktop operating system was introduced a few weeks ago. As expected, the old Apple computers did not receive support for the new version. Nevertheless, you can still install the updated system on an obsolete Mac, and today we will tell you how to do it.
The minimum requirements for macOS 10.14 were higher than a year earlier. Currently, the list of officially supported Apple computers looks like this:
- MacBook (Early 2015 and newer)
- iMac (late 2012 and newer)
- MacBook Air (Mid 2012 and newer)
- MacBook Pro (Mid 2012 and newer)
- Mac Mini (end of 2012 and newer)
- Mac Pro (end of 2013, mid 2010, mid 2012)
- iMac Pro (2017)
The rest of the Mac models remained “in flight”. However, this issue is now being solved, thanks to enthusiasts from the Dosdude project. The developers released a special patch that makes the installation of a new system possible on the following equipment:
- Xserve 2009
- Mac Pro 2009
- iMac Late 2009. Late 2011. exclusively based on Intel Core i-Series processors
- MacBook Air Mid 2011
- MacBook Pro Mid 2010. Late 2011. exclusively based on Intel Core i-Series processors
- Mac Mini Mid 2011

Of course, it was not without problems at all. for example, the above computers using the integrated Intel HD 3000 graphics can sometimes encounter problems when rendering the interface.
So, to install the system you need:
Download the patch at the following link. Then download the macOS Mojave public build image.
After running the utility and specify the path for the image and select the required USB-drive. After that, only the “Start Operation” button will remain.
The copying process will begin. In order for the system to be installed on older Macs, some changes will be made to the image to ensure compatibility. In particular, equipment verification will be disabled. After the bootable flash drive has been created, you can directly proceed with the installation itself. From this moment, the installation process is no different from the usual.
Developers warn that macOS Mojave should not be installed on their main computer, since the operating system is still at the testing stage and users may observe some problems.

Although, as for me, this is a subsystem with eternal viruses, a clogged file system, the need for defragmentation, and so on. several years on the poppy, and this is my choice about which I have never regretted. The same story with android. I parted and do not regret. Everything in the nightmare past.
