Hello Everyone!

I have 2006 MacBook 2,1 with Core2 Duo and 2Gb of Ram. Trying to figure out how to install 10.11 so that I can upgrade to Sierra from there. Is there a solution?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have tried installing using installer disk.

Your 2006 MacBook only supported a maximum OS of 10.7.5 Lion.
Yes this is what I was afraid of. It is currently using 10.6.8. I have seen different hack methods on the net as well but not sure I should attempt any of those methods.

*Assuming you go ahead with the upgrade*

Let me put this in clear terms, if you do go up to Sierra, you'll end up with a widely unstable machine as the drivers won't be updated to handle Sierra.

Your MacBook will run pretty poorly on anything beyond SL. If you need the latest supported browsers/applications, you'd be better off throwing Windows 7 onto it instead.

Oh and an SSD. :)
