    Hi, I am almost ready to update my Mac Pro 1,1 to El Capitan. It now has an original 7300GT 256mb and 12gb RAM.

    Early-2008 iMac not booting

    Howdy all, I was recently given an early-2008 iMac (specifically, this one) of the 3.06GHz variety.

    I have a mid 2011 iMac which was working fine, but slowing down a bit, so I preemptively had the HD replaced by an authorized Mac repair.
