Today from SFOTT's site they released this little chestnut.

Yosemite installer for unsupported macintoshes beta 1

here are the known issues for everyone.


Recovery is Created during install but not working.
Pike’s working on it, and we’re all testing out the boot.efi.

Until done, well Recovery won’t work, so beware with Filevault

- ONLY CONSIDER YOSEMITE FOR TESTING if you want/need FILEVAULT ( iMessage too I think )

I do test on a MacMini2,1 as I don’t have a MacPro1,1 at Hand anymore.
I’d say that unless you have graphics, forget about Yosemite on a MacMini2,1 or Macbook etc….
It does not worth it from my Point of view, and it is quite buggy – login step for instance. Video can’t handle.
MacPro1,1 MacPro2,1 – Xserve (and some 64bits not Officially supported) may be the only Computerswith interest as we can change the Graphic Cards.

You are warned. No one on Macrumors, Tiamo Pikeralpha nor I could be responsible for any data loss. You are warned.
Only try on a dedicated hard drive. remove any drive that you care for. Don’t play with unless you are sure you can loose the content.
You are warned.

Now, Enjoy testing.

So, a macmini1,1 with upgrade to C2D and EFI flashed to macmini2,1... should just stick to 10.6.8?

yea its mostly because of the graphics card but weirder is i still don't get why apple never turned on the 64 bit efi on the mac pro 1.1 because what is funny here is sfott is basically a 64 bit efi and it works just fine

On the SFOTT site the demo install is with a macmini2,1 (assumed 2007 model). I don't understand why it wouldn't work on a 2006 macmini1,1 patched with macmini2,1 and a 64bit CPU for a headless config.
