Can install OSX Mavericks but nothing later
I’m working on a Mac mini mid 2010 model that stopped booting. I found that the hard disk was going bad and replaced it with an SSD.
I have tried installing:
1) High Sierra
2) Low Sierra
3) El Capitan
All of which end of failing either before or after the initial installation (before it reboots and continues) with an error that the operating system could not be installed, but it usually does not point to any specific error, just says something like try again.
If I install OSX 10.9 (mavericks), it works fine except at a certain point, the updates will not work. It tries, but eventually reboots and gives me a message about the updates not working.
The computer originally had been working with 10.10 installed, so I want to at least get that far and make sure the photos app gets installed so they can view their photos library.
I can not run a diagnostic on this mac mini. When I hold D, it says not available.
Esta é uma boa pergunta?
