    Hello all, I would like to find out the code for terminal to tell my Macbook Pro 1st generation 2006 1.83Ghz/2GB running 10.6.7 ...that it is a Core Duo to be able to load Lion OS X.

    I want to try this first on an external carbon copy of HD.

    I know it is possible and would be fun to test out and report.

    Thanks for your time!!

    PS. I know it will be more sluggish in some apps...but just want to test out and can go back to Snow Leopard if too buggy.

    I assume OP meant Core 2. I have seen threads on how to do it, but I don't personally know how. Try searching for it, it's been covered
