Hi I’m hoping someone may kindly help me. I would like to know what Mac OS is best for my HP Pavilion P247sa?
I realise it is a older laptop but hoping a version of Mac OS is compatible with it.
I have installed a SSD and upgraded the Ram to 16GB. Further specs below.
Many thanks to whoever replies.

Thank you.

I spent several hours trying to get Mojave to install and I get as far as
411047
an Apple logo and nothing happens.
Hmm, what am I not doing right?
I followed the guide to the letter with bios settings/trying in safe mode etc..

booting verbose would be better so you can see the issue

also make sure to use a USB2.0 stick and try all ports

also make sure you are using latest clover version form sourceforge
