Hello everyone,
It is my first post since I joined (long ago) tonymac. So please be kind if it is not very clear.

Back on the subject:
I miraculously (after facing "contact apple support" for quite a while) got my iMessage working. Now.. I was thinking of upgrading my build from Haswell to Skylake. Surely that will change the product model from iMac14,2 to iMac17,1. And AppleID is happy with my iMac14,2 obviously. So how would MLB/ROM/SMUUID replacement and AppleID play together. Would there be any chance to get iMessage working?

Thank you all.

Note: I am on 10.14.1 and surely I would have no problem to perform fresh installation for the upgrade.
