Ok so a customer at work needed extra work doing in a attic/loft conversion job, I agreed to do the work and was paid by the customer, while doing the work me and the customer had to remove some of his old stored stuff, in with all this stuff was a Appe MacBook, he gave it to me said it was old and no good, he said it didn't even work ...
At this point we had only the MacBook, no charger and the battery was missing.
I took it home, wiped it down to clean off dust and some marks, and started to look for a charger and battery replacement, I was in two minds as the charger was expensive and the MacBook may not even work, so I held back on buying the charger and battery, good job I did as the next day the customer rang me to say he was happy with the work I had done and to say he had found the charger and battery for me.
Buzzing, of I went to get them and test the MacBook, got home popped the battery in and connected charger .... Nothing dead no life ?
While playing about with the charger I noticed the flex looked damaged so I stripped it back to find a break in the wire, I re-wired and taped it up .... Connected it to the MacBook ... And ... It booted !!!
The battery is swollen and is holding no power at all - new battery on its way
But all in all I now have a :
A1181 - Apple MacBook 4.1 2.4GHz, Core 2 Duo T8300, White (Late 08), 160GB HDD, 2GB DDR2 SDRAM, Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8.
My question is : Can I upgrade from 10.6.8 Snow Leopard to say Mavericks or Yosemite even ?
If I can, will the links you provided get me there or do I need your assistance ?
Thanks in advance ????
