    Migrating OS drive to another system

    you could try making a USB Serria with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and multibeaste. Or Maverick ! Maverick is the old OS that would load on my Dell laptop. "If it won't boot , it won't install" google !!!

    I always have a USB OS X to use in emergency ! I loaded High Sierra USB . ran the High Sierra app on USB! High Sierra installed to the USB ! From the install folder it made I ran the mkginstaller from package folder. It updated Sierra ! Boots and runs but lots of problems with Finder. will not except my ID password. When I get OS X running well on USB !! I restore to HD. Now I only have Sierra working Great on My Dell 960 desktop with Clover.

    Dell 5420 Sierra

    I tried everything to Install/run Mac. from lion to Sierra. no luck. I took a Sierra drive from Mac book 13 ,it booted up ? no inputs worked, USB etc. or trackpad. I cloned Sierra to 1t drive. it boot up. same problems. all mods were done on my Dell 960 with Sierra. So I tried Clover !! with 1 t hd trying to get inputs ! clover killed the 1T HD, lucky still have the MacBook 250 g drive < good!! One t drive shows as invisible. The Mac hd has no boot loader but boots.
  10. thanks to [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] and Mutibeast + clover I have Sierra installed on 2nd partition. took a little learning ! using maverick portioned usb guid > formatted journaled. used chameleon wizard to set usb32g smbios to imac12.2. made installer with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] legacy with Maverick used [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] to load boot files. took twice to learn > follow cover setup left to right (no jumping around selecting). most important is networking > did not work until I selected intel1000e.kext. I made Sierra.dmg using Maverick. restored to USB Drive > boots and works fine.
  11. El Capitan crashed my Dell 960 . I had a image of both maverick and elcap ! so I just restored with my USB Maverick. ElCapitan kept setting the the Bios to RAID, at restart or shut down. I put it on the first partition but no change ! Still a problem. no way to stop RAID in Bios. got EL cap to boot ! copied extra file from installer and put it in Elcapitan drive. Thanks Chris !!!! and his crew for their help "the installer " !!! .
  12. i should not updated the security on ElCap.
  13. it didn't in win 7 , maybe changed !! Windows 10 is more like mac. you can run your win app on usb in win 10. let me know please maybe mac first because boot loader ?
  14. Had windows 7 and lion on usb ! I have windows 10 on USB , had to install win 10 on 2.5 with PC then transfer to usb hd 2.5 enclosure. I would try make 2 or 3 guid Partions install win 10 on first !!! restore mac on second ! linux ? install mac boatloader. will give you startup choice. win 10 has to be first. I now run Maverick on dell ssf and windows 10 on usb for personal business, Quicken ect.
