 Hey all,

 I built my first Hackintosh back in 2012 and its been runner amazing. Thank you again for the awesome guides and forums that made it all possible. I have however hit the end of this builds software limits. I am still running 10.8.2 mountain lion on the machine. I would like to update to Sierra and want to make sure I am clear on the procedures. Now that it seems like everything is could based and no longer get physical versions of OS.

currently i am backing up the system using and external drive and "carbon copy cloner" as shown here: http://www.macbreake...arbon-copy.html


My question is should i follow the set via the App store updates, Wipe the system and start over or is there a better way to achieve running Sierra on my machine?


Here are my build specs:

Processor name: Intel Core i7

Processor Speed: 3.50 GHZ

# of cores: 4

memory: 32gb

Boot rom version: insanelymac.com

Graphics Card: Nivda GeForce GTX 670

System Version: OSX 10.8.2 (12c60)

i have also attached screen shots of the spec to further help:


Thank you for taking the time to help me out with my build. look forward to getting this bad boy updated.
