Details please?

You mentioned Sierra, was Mojave installed on 10.12 (Sierra) or 10.3 (High Sierra)?

Apple have found out that there is a problem with Mojave and when installed because of Sierra it can damage your hard drive, comment came from Apple Support. They are now reloading onto the hard drive, to see if they can fix it remotely from the server - after Command R first aid followed by install Mac OS Mojave.

Some are forecasting an announcement on Oct 30 at an Apple event in New York. My "new" one (late 2014) is still one the 1yr warranty (plus AppleCare), so I won't be buying one.

However, if I can talk my wife out of her MBP, I might get her one and VESA mount a monitor. She has several fused upper vertebra and the laptop is easy to use since the 'monitor' is so low on her desk. But she doesn't really need for the portability anymore. :Thinking: :coolio:

I'm particularly interested in the compatibility of MS Entourage 2008 with Mojave. So far, it has worked with each OS upgrade but I use it constantly and don't want to make a substitution, if possible. Roaring Apps doesn't have any data yet.

Out of curiosity, what were the issues he was experiencing? Are they old software related, perchance?

That MBP should run Mojave, in theory.

I've been too busy to update anything lately - so can't render any opinions on the new OS, but ALWAYS do a full backup before updating anything. As Jim said. ;)

Was he not running TimeMachine, at least? You can revert using that...

What?! Wait! Is there a way to upgrade one's self? :Thinking: I could use that! YMMV, but I have a lot of bugs, faults, broken parts that could certainly benefit from improved versions! :yes: :rofl:

Here are some sites explaining how. It was a simple search with DuckDuckGo (my preferred search engine), I'm sure Google would work just as well. ;)

I have not updated yet, so I cannot vouch for any of these methods. Please read and follow these instructions carefully. The first step is to always have a complete, bootable back up!! Preferably more than one!:yes:Second step using any computer: Always read and understand the choices in all dialog boxes. If you have any questions or doubts, ask for help. [RANT]I fault Apple for this event. Their incessant, nagging 'OS Update' dialogs are intended, in my humble opinion, to trick the user into making the update.[/RANT]
