If you managed to get SL going, even if not fully functional, you can use myHack to install Mavericks 10.9. That would be a good 1st installation to begin with.


myHack comes with a default bootpack that should get you through. You have a SandyBridge platform so make sure to use NullCPUPowerManagement to start with as I'm not sure the AICPUPM patch provided by myHack does actually work as expected. myHack provides an easy way to add kexts in a transparent manner. You place them in /Extra/Extensions and then run myFix (quick.


Yosemite and ElCapitan require manual or Clover based installations and those are usually prepared from an existing Mac or Hack.
