Default Re: Upgrade to SSD drive with PT 10?

Hope you guys see this.

I got my Glyph Studio drive back from Glyph after having them repair the Firewire ports, and I'm daisy-chaining the Mbox Pro 3 to the Glyph to the iMac. The computer sees everything, so I've got a question before I move forward.

What is the best OS to use on the iMac for the last version of Pro Tools 10? What is the most stable combination of MacOS and PT 10? I tried to install PT 10 onto 10.11.6 and the PT installer said it needed at least 10.7 to install correctly.

Thanks
Mike

PT10 installer sees "10.11" as "10.1" and won't install because it reads it as too old. This is a known thing.
I think 10.6.8 is best for 10.3.10, but that's just because it's what I have experience with and know. There is also 10.8.5.

Having experience with something and what you know is a good recommendation.

I'll go with that. Thanks!!

For PT10 and 10.3.10 which is the last 10 version I would go with 10.8 5 Mountain Lion which was a super stable OSX/PT combo. 10.6.8 was also good but much older so get ahold of a ML 10.8.5 and you will be very happy if you do everything correct with optimizing your iMac and so on with PT10

We ran that Combo for 2 years with HD10 and HDN card and can’t remember once when we had any issues.
