    I want to install yosemite, however.....

    I have read here that many have been able to successfully upgrade to mavericks and/or Yosemite on unsupported macs using a special method.

    I have seen these guides list the minimum requirements for a macbook from late 2006 (2,1)

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1761432

    does anyone know if it is possible to upgrade an early 2006 (1,1) or am i SOL?

    thanks

    You're out of luck. Your MacBook has a 32 bit processor which cannot run Yosemite whatsoever.

    No, this CPU cannot run Yosemite. It's a 32-bit Core Duo, not a Core 2 Duo. Also, your link doesn't work; the site has been suspended.

    Ahh, I see. I mistaken it for a Core 2 Duo. Sorry Gramps416, but it needs to support OS X 10.7 Lion to be capable of using this guide.; Also for reference, that site was reset to different server. High CPU Usage are common right now :D

    my number one concern was security. not receiving updates anymore, i don't know if it is safe to use or not. If something was wrong with 10.6, i suppose we wouldn't know about it
