    You should probably use an existing thread

    And note that '"can" and "can't" mean different things and you need to be clear what issue is

    I've been in almost all the threads but they are not my problems
    I've tried the 4.1 to 5.1 even before changing the CPUs but nothing happens
    Did apple changed something ??

    Please use the search function, from memory, this topic was just discussed in less than a month.

    Also, without your machines's details + what / how you do it. It's hard for us to tell you what went wrong.

    Even though my personal guess would be you didn't put the required files on the desktop, but you still better use the search function.
