Dell Vostro 220( ICH10 ) with 4 GB Ram and a T7200 core 2 duo, PCI-E Apple 802.11ac and Bluetooth, Bluetooth sound via Vizio 5.1 sound system.

 

Everything works, but graphics card does not wake from sleep.

nVidia MCP79A( GF9300 ) Core 2 Quad Q9550 6 GB Ram, Apple original FW400 iSight, USB Wifi, HDMI Audio. Everything seems to work, had one random shutdown, wake from sleep works for the first time under the macOS, been running every OS from 10.6.8 on this Motherboard and wake from sleep never worked. Custom DSDT I edited years ago to try and get sleep to work proper, Custom SSDT for HDMI Audio.

Care to share how did you do that?

 

I have some Core 2 Duo E4500 cpu in my old computer, so I would appreciate if you leave here instructions for the method that you use to do that!

Would a q9550 run High Sierra as well as El Capitan performance wise?

 

I am on a Asus P5e/Q6600 (SSE3) and it would be a cheap upgrade for now.

nvflash probably meant a core 2 duo 7200 without "T" = aka wolfdale has SSE4.1

 

that's why sierra/high sierra worked.

I ran the betas of High Sierra on my Q9550 and found that it did not run that great. However, in theory the CPU *should* do fine.

I have a Q9550, and I guess a E7200, they are both running High Sierra just fine, both support SSE 4.1.

 

The real thing with High Sierra is Ram, at least 6 Gigs is needed, runs good on 8.

 

I got by with my Q9550 as long as I could, and upgraded to a Ryzen 7 1700, now I can run make -j16 instead of make -j4.
