I currently running a fine system of Mac Pro 8 core with many physical external and internal additional hardware.
My 2008 can not go any higher and runs Mavericks (10.9.5) fine. 24 GbRam, good video card, etc.
I was surprised that this 1/2 number upgrade from C8 to C8.5 suddenly left my computer in the cemetary of forgotten users.
Has anyone found that it runs fine in Mac OS 10.9.5 (Mavericks)?
I tried installling Yosemite on an extra drive and over 1/2 my software wouldn’t work with that upgrade (10.10)
The computer runs but without spending a lot of money on upgrades and replacements for non-gradeable software, I’m stuck.
Would love to know that C8.5 was working on Mavericks ok and have no issue paying the $50 upgrade. But only if it works.
To tricky to have a boot drive for mostly one program and OS.
Love to hear from you all.
(please don’t make this a 'well it’s over 7 years old your computer, as the hardware and software are newer than that,
and at this time a new similar 8 core is out of my budget)
