Sixty Four On Thirty Two (SFOTT)

Yosemite / Mavericks / Mountain Lion on Unsupported Mac

This page is dedicated to Sfott,

this “little” piece of code I did to automate the creation of USB key with the boot.efi from Tiamo’s of MacRumors.

This script aims to prepare a USB or disc media for Unsupported 32bit based Macs that are not eligibles for Mavericks or Mountain Lion.

Ce “petit” bout de code pour automatiser la création d’une clé USB avec le boot.efi de Tiamo’s de chez MacRumors.

    Keep up the good work.

    Successfully have Yosemite 10.10 installed using SFOTT Yosemite-beta. No luck with install of Yosemite 10.10.4 combo update and re-patch and no luck with the incremental update for 10.10.4 from Apples website. Cannot load SFOTT from terminal, during installation screen (Selecting utilities then terminal and entering “sfott”). But everything else runs great.

    Hi there,
    thank you so much for all the information and available downloads on your page.
    Thanks your guidance I successfully did an update to 10.10.5 on my Mac Pro 1.1 (2 x 2.66 Quadcore).
    It also run windows 10 now on a second hard disk.
    An open issue is that the temperature under Windows is higher due to the fact that there is no software to deal with the fanspeed manually (like FanControl under OS X).
    Anyhow, thank you!
    Cheers Toni
