OS for mid 2009 MacBook Pro update

I work for a non-profit on a laptop given to us by a local research laboratory. So the first thing to understand is that I have to find "the best way to make things work" even though it is not as advanced or great power that may be desirable in an ideal situation. Who says:

I've been running OS 10.6.8 on a MacBookPro mid-2009. From now on, the software companies are all pulling the versions of software that I can use on 10.6.8 so I have no choice but to update my operating system.

My concern: two years ago I updated a MacBookPro 2007 10.6.8 to 10.7 (Lion) and he died 3 weeks later. The technology at the Mac Genius Bar told me that it was because the real hardware - hard drive of the machine - was so old that the upgrade has been too hard on it and it burned. I understand that, even if the hard drive is not burning after an upgrade, the computer may run very slowly and for the same reason (physical constraints). It would also be a problem.

Given all this, what is the best suggestion for the safest possible and achievable OS upgrade, that I can put on my machine so I can stay in business? Can probably manage 10.7, even if the material is nearly 7 years old? What 10.8.5 10.8 or same?

I realize that system specs say it can work even in Yosemite. But I don't want to take the risk that go well, given my recent disasters.

Thanks for any advice you can provide.


You never mentioned the amount of RAM the machine has-

You can always switch to Mountain Lion 10.8 - here


There is a cost, but I don't know if you call or otherwise contact Apple with your situation - you can get a redemption code - well no harm in trying

  • Best replacement battery for mid 2009 Macbook Pro

    Hi all

    The battery on my MBP of mid 2009 is on its way. I discovered recently that Apple now no no batteries for MBP 2009 community service because they are vintage. I was very disappointed by Apple, after hearing this. My question is what is the best replacement of the third battery in my laptop? I read the comments from Anker Lizone, keys and power GreenBox. They all seem similar, much good reviews, some bad. Nothing similar to the original farm. Any tips or suggestions? Thanks in advance!

  • The Sierra of MacOS will propose for the Mid 2009 MacBook Pro in the near future?

    I have a model Mid 2009 MacBook Pro and when I try to upgrade the software of OS systems to the Sierra, he refused my request to download because it "cannot be downloaded to this computer." I noticed other Mac computers, for example, iMac Mid 2009 or newer and MacBook Mid 2009 or more recent systems only one are close to mine are candidates to download the software, but the MacBook Pro is the only one that is not on this list for availability. So, my question to my question is, will be available Mid 2009 MacBook Pro updated to day for Sierra anytime soon? And if not, why?

    Please let me know what your answer is as soon as possible.

    Thank you!

    My answer is no.

    However, as long as I and everyone here, do not work for Apple, my answer is certainly not authoritative.

    However, as I've used Apple computers for more than 30 years, he never had a case when they released an additional OS that works on previously excluded material.

    On crucial.com, I chose my system I, mid-2012 MacBook Pro 15 inches. I want to move to 8 GB of ram, but I want to know if their DDR3L will work.

    Hello!  Can anyone help me in this state of EtreCheck to understand what I need to do to improve performance with my MacBook Pro?  The computer is slow to respond after the computer starts.  Apps are also slow to load.  Once I have apps open, the speed is satisfactory.  It just seems to have the hiccups a lot just to get there.

    Good advice is greatly appreciated!  Thank you in advance.

    1. Uninstall McAfee.  There is no virus circulating currently which can do damage to OS X, so this time programs, the antivirus are not necessary.  The majority of them, what I and other contributors here have seen, adversely affects the performance of any system they are installed on.  In addition, they protect you from what Mac users really need to worry, which is malware and adware.  Malware and adware programs are installed by you, unlike viruses, who settle.  The most common way in this case is when you download something via torrent or a comprehensive download site, as many times these installers are provided with the malware and adware.  When you install one, install you this.
    2. Uninstall CleanMyMac 3.  Mac don't need any program that claims it will be driven, clean, optimize, refresh, or organize your computer.  Programs like CMM are called scamware for a reason.
    3. Uninstall Trusteer.  See #1 why.  If an antivirus program on a Mac is bad, more than one is even worse.
  • RAM upgrade for mid-2012 MacBook Pro question?

    So, I bought some RAM Corsair (2 x 8 GB) to install in my MacBook Pro for mid-2012. It has been well over a month now and I get freezes and flaws that were not there when the Apple RAM stock has already been installed. My question is... are it freezes and the seeds one result of the brand of RAM I have installed (Corsair) or the fact that I am superior to the amount of 8 GB of RAM recommended for this laptop of Apple to the particular address?

    Thank you.

    As you can see here, your MBP can, indeed, support for 16 GB of RAM. However, DIMMs must meet Apple specifications which are often much more demanding that really meant DIMMS for PC can meet. One of the advantages of buying from OWC (in the link) is that they provide 100% support so their products need to be designed with the Mac in mind. If you have no problem with DIMM Apple, but you do with Corsair DIMMS, I would say getting them replaced or, better yet, to get a refund.

  • Updated BIOS for mid-2010 MacBook Pro?

    Cannot get my MacBook 2010 mid Pro 13 "to recognize the new 3 TB Western Digital My Passport 3 to. Execution of Yosemite and noted topics such as this one with Yosemite and a variety of HDs external on the internet. No problem with the previous 2 TB WD My Passport which it replaced as more storage. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Again internal 2 TB Seagate HD.

    There is "a knee in the curve" technology used in outdoor pens. 2.2 TB. The older models do not work with elegance on the disks of this size.

    If you have a smaller car that could live in this place, then you can exchange the 3 TB drive in another enclosure to try. If all else fails, you need a new case to go over to 2.2.

  • Kernel Panic mid-2009 Macbook Pro

    Hi guys,.

    Since OSX Mavericks, my mac frequently crashes and restarts. I initially if it was to him more heating, but appears not to be the case, as it does cold also. I am totally confused because it's so random when it does. I upgraded the Ram in 2010 and it has been fine, but I saw a few people here with a similar problem who have posted their journal of crash and said that it is the RAM. I really hope that someone can help because it's getting really frustrating. I know that I probably need to upgrade my mac, but one I don't have the money right now and B it is a model of Steve Jobs, thus, I am reluctant to negotiate. In any case, here is the log. Can someone please explain whats happening. Thank you!!

    I have a faulty ram (top) slot for a Mid 2012 Macbook Pro 13 "i5.  Can I install a 8 GB Ram in the slot below or is maximally 4 GB?

    This was after the 3 beep error and I couldn't restart the Mac with one of the 2 GB of Ram into the lower slot.

    Is there a way to test if the top housing is faulty or just dirty?

    Thank you

    Yes, the MBP will work with a single module of RAM installed, but there will be a slight performance decrease.  A MBP 2012 will accept a module of 8 GB RAM.

    Is there a way to test if the top housing is faulty or just dirty?

    Install each RAM module individually in each slot, leaving the other empty.  If the two RAM modules work in a slot and not the other, the slot is faulty.  Sometimes the adjustment screw can resuscitate the slot.  If this is not the case, make an appointment at an Apple store for a FREE evaluation.
