    Just inherited a Mac Pro 1,1. Help updating to 10.7.5
    Interesting machine, not sure I will need such a beast but couldn't pass up it up. Running the dual 2.66ghz processors and 12gb of RAM. It's got 10.5 on it still and need advice on upgrading it to Lion 10.7.5 is the latest it can run. Can't download Lion from the App store and don't really want to spend the $20 to but it. Downloaded it from "other" sources and tried to install but don't have the administraters user password. Tried to create a USB boot disk but can't seem to find the InstallESD.dmg on the one I downloaded.

    Spend the $20. You have no idea what you are getting from the internet.

    Recommend using Onyx to clean your Mac.

    OS 10.7 was a purchase only OS. We do not assist folks engaging in nefarious activities.

    As Lisa mentioned...pay the $20 bucks!
