Trying to install os sierra on mac min mid 2010(4,1). When trying direct upgrade from os 10.10.5 , 2min from end of install it gets stuck. Then I tried installing form usb , followed all instructions, got installation to start, then error message : This macOS could not be installed on your computer. On mac website it states that mac mini mid2010 can run os sierra & os high sierra. Installing on 2nd partition , first partition running os 10.10.5. Please help!

Moved to Mac mini forum.

You do know that this is a site for those that install Apple operating systems onto non-Apple hardware ?
There are many Apple support forums elsewhere.
