Yes, El Capitan 10.11.6 can run provided that the GPU is supported. I tested it on my Z370 Ultra Gaming 2.0 with a i7 8700 and a GTX 660 and El Capitan 10.11.6 ran successfully using a FakeCPUID 506E3 (Skylake) in Clover. I only tested with a previously installed copy of El Capitan and not installing El Capitan.I would like to know if Gigabyte Z370 Ultra Gaming WIFI with i7 8700 will support installation of El Capitan?
Yes, El Capitan can also run on Z390 motherboards using a 8th generation CPU such as a i7 8700 provided the GPU is supported. I tested it myself sometime ago using a Gigabyte Z390 Designare motherboard with a i7 8700 and GTX 660, and El Capitan 10.11.6 can boot successfully using the same FakeCPUID.This is great news, and thank you Jamesbond007 for sharing this, but any chance El Capitan will run on the Z390, too, using the same FakeCPUID ? The MB would be an Asus one and I would also use an existing El Capitan install.
My 6700k+Z170 just crashed, and since Z170 boards are no longer available, I want to upgrade to the latest. Given that's it's a considerable amount of money, I want to be efficient
I am forced to use El Capitan because it's a production system with special hardware and software not supported by the latest OS X versions (Nvidia drivers as an example)
Thank you !
