With each new major operating system release, more and more Macs lose OS X upgrade support from Apple. This means many previous generation models will never get to see the benefits of the latest and greatest operating system. This can prove frustrating for users who are looking to upgrade the software on their “older” Macs that still function great.
However, with a clever workaround, some of the older, unsupported Macs can be made to run Apple’s OS X Mountain Lion after all! Special software and installation instructions have been posted in the Macrumors.com forum by “hackerwayne” with step-by-step instructions to help many unsupported Macs run OS X Mountain Lion. (A video guide detailing the installation of the software has also been made available.)
Of course, in order to run OS X Mountain Lion and benefit from its features, there are certain pre-requisites that are outlined. For example, your machine must have at least 2GB of RAM installed to get desirable results.
Check out the list of previous generation Macs that can run Mountain Lion. You might be able to bring new possibilities to your machine that you previously thought impossible!
