TOPIC: Booting Techtool Pro 10 on 2007 MacBook

Booting Techtool Pro 10 on 2007 MacBook 16 Aug 2019 00:40 #11315

I manage Apple MacBooks from 2006 through 2010. I created the Protogo flash drive on an iMac running El Capitan. This boots on the 2009 and 2010 MacBooks, but will not boot on a 2006-2008 MacBook.
How can I create a Protogo boot drive that will work wth these earlier MacBooks?

You probably cannot, because the system software on the Protogo device is copied from a specific model, and that model's system software does not have all of the files, specifically video drivers, for other models. The discussion is here:

Thank you for the quick reply.

Is there a version of TechTool Pro that I can install on a Mac that can not run an OS later than Lion 10.7? If so, then I can create a Protogo boot drive from it.

Is this a possibility?

Thanks again!

You are wlcome.

The versions of TechTool Pro that have TechTool Protogo incorporated within the program all require Mac OS X 10.8 or later. Mac OS X 10.7 was supported by the earlier stand-alone program, TechTool Protogo 4. Make sure you do not have both TechTool Pro that includes Protogo and a stand-alone Protogo application installed on the same volume.

The TechTool Protogo 4 manual is at :
