Remember to make backups of your system before altering what you have so you can go back. SuperDuper, Carbon Copy Cloner just to name a couple. Spinning hard drives are super cheap and work great for as a bootable backup to an SSD in your Mac.

Thanks so much!
Just got an old basic nvidia graphics card too so I can see the install

I tried to do it in disk or target mode from an iMac

Worked great booting from the Imac

But not so great from the tower after I installed the web drivers

There is no way for me to access the computer now

But now I install the nvidia card I had sold
I will keep it as a backup just in case
Or I will have to buy another and wait if this happens again! ;-)

I would think it wouldn't if I follow your advice right?

But now I have to start over clean installing all software and just keeping Apple software update on manual and lock it!

I still do not know how it defaulted to autopilot mode!

Call it a gremlin? Or should I blame the North Koreans? ;-))))

Oh also thanks again!
And in your opinion or does anyone know
What the best way to get a thunderbolt pcie card working on this mac 5,1 tower?

Or what I am trying to do is figure out which Storage solution will bring me into the new generation?

Does ATTO make a pcie card and to what options?

It seems technology changes So fast SCSI the SATA then eSATA
Now it's Ethernet? Again? Or Thunderbolt 3?

Which would be the best upgrade for this Mac 5,1?

Thanks again
