Your MacBook Pro must have an Intel-based processor capable of 64 bit operation. See About this Mac in the Apple menu. You need a processor like "Intel Core 2 Duo", etc. It 's HIGHLY recommended you have (or upgrade your MacBook to) 8 GB of memory.

To instal Yosemite on a MacBook Pro, first it must be a mid to late 2007 model or later, next you need to have at least 10.6.8 OS or Lion, Mountain Lion or Mavericks installed. You need at least 2GB RAM also. Once these issues are confirmed you can then install the FREE Yosemite operating system as long as you followed the previous instructions about having an Apple ID.

Apple has made this feature free, and fairly simple. You should first make sure you have a backup of your hard drive on an external drive (easiest to complete with the TimeMachine feature of your Macbook Pro).

  • Open the App Store app and select the Featured or Top Charts tab. You can search for Yosemite, although Top Charts will usually list it as #1 in the Top Free apps.

  • Click on the Download button for Yosemite wherever it appears (either in the search list, or in Top Charts). Follow the prompts.

  • Depending on your connection speed and the specs of your macbook pro, the installation will take one to four hours.
    • Of course, you will have to have an Apple ID to download anything from the App Store.
    • If you don't have an Apple ID and don't know how to get one, please ask another question on FIXYA.

Why is my Macbook Pro, late 2011, with Yosemite running very slowly?


Hard drive could be heading south. Can we assume the several 1000 emails are not important as they are not archived? Is so I suggest getting a SSD and replacing the stock HD.

What is the specifications os serial number C02MG06VF5V7


it came with 10.8 (https://checkcoverage.apple.com using your serial number and https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204319), but Maverick, Yosemite, and El Capitan are all free upgrades (the next three OS sequentially)

or you mean "of" (and not "OS"), in which case, Macs are configurable when you buy them, but your options are laid out here:

How can i restore my emac without the disc's. I lost safari and am now unable to get on the Internet. I don't need to back anything up cause there is nothing important on it. Just want it original again


I think you are talking about your Mac. It would help if you could install a version of any OS X on your drive in the first place. If the computer does not start in the first place it could be difficult.
If you have a firewire cable to connect two MAC's you could force the content from one drive on the one that is empty.

I recently had to put a new drive in a Macbook pro and I could not get anything on it. So I did an install on that drive in another MAC, of which I did have the disks. After I got snow leopard on the drive I placed in the Macbook and could update it to yosemite without any problem.
You could try to make an startup stick, and try to install from that. Hoe to do that is in the link:

I am running OS X 10.4.11 and would like to upgrade my operating system?


Please provide more information.
To what would you like to upgrade it?

Since OSX Mavericks was just announced, I'm going to assume that's what you're wanting to upgrade to.

Not all Macs can run Mavericks.

Mavericks Capable Macs

Mavericks, like its predecessor Mountain Lion, requires one of the following Macs with at least 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of available hard drive space:
  • iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
  • MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
  • MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
  • Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
  • Xserve (Early 2009)

If your Mac isn't one of the ones listed above, you won't be able to upgrade.

If you have an iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, or Mac mini model that was originally released in Early/Mid 2006, the latest version of Mac OS X your system supports is Snow Leopard.
