After SSD install, OSX? (iMac 2011)
I just put a new SSD in an old iMac and ran up against the “OSX Lion" won’t install” issue (not sure why Apple discontinued the ability of Lion to install in recovery mode). Thinking I will have to create a bootable USB, but does it have to be Lion?
Can I put Sierra or even High Sierra on the system?
I assumed that, since this system was never updated beyond Lion, the firmware never updated and it wouldn’t install an OSX later than Lion from a bootable drive.
Am I wrong?
