      Hi. Can I upgrade this to run the latest OS or is it time for a new machine? It’s a 5,1 bought from you a few years ago. Thanks!

      You can only go up to High Sierra on the 2009 Mac Pro. Catalina isn’t supported. It is possible but it’s not recommended.

      1. Hello I’m new here, I have brought this machine and want to make a few upgrades.

        I want to buy 4 new harddrives 4x 6 or8TB and run them in 2 lots of raid 0.

        It has the operating system on a ssd. Should this be upgraded to a 1TB?

        I have a few messages from the person I brought this of, I need advice please.

      2. I will post pictures up thanks
