How "dangerous" is disabling SIP if I want to install Sierra on a 2009 Mac Mini? The official limit of the 2009 Mac Mini is El Capitan but I really need Sierra and am not sure I can afford a new or even second-hand later model Mini. If I have anti-virus software like Sophos installed will that take care of any problems disabling SIP might cause? This is an area I know nothing about. I have a decent upgraded 2009 Mac Mini with an SSD and 8GB of RAM and plenty of life left in it. If I can install Sierra without major risk then that would seem to be the best way to go.
