MacOS Ventura: It's now possible to install it on an old Mac!

MacOS Ventura: It's now possible to install it on an old Mac! ...

A group of developers developed a program that allows users to install macOS Ventura on unsupported Macs earlier this year. The official version of OpenCore 6.0 is now available for anyone who wants to try it out.

MacOS Ventura: AOL-compatible systems may now be installed!

The "OpenCore Legacy Patcher" (or OCLP) is a program that allows older Macs to run macOS Big Sur and Monterey, despite there being no official Apple support. It is based on the same hackintosh technique that is well-known to run macOS on normal PCs.

The authors of OCLP showed some macOS Ventura computers running macOS Ventura two months after the launch of the first beta version of macOS Ventura. However, making OCLP compatible with macOS Ventura was not an easy task.

Apple has removed the majority of drivers from MacOS 13. This is because this version does not support Macs with a Intel processor older than the seventh generation. Despite these limitations, the most recent version of OCLP managed to accomplish this.

Thanks to OpenCore, here are some Macs that may run macOS Ventura.

This project is still in development, so please allow me to point out that certain things might not work as expected.

Anyway, as shown by the remarks, most things work.

On GitHub, you can find further information about this OpenCore tool.
