Had a fun weekend fooling my MacPro4,1 (early 2009) into thinking it was a MacPro5,1, thus allowing me to install High Sierra. Simples.

Yeah, I finally gave in and decided to run a patched High Sierra – the software I need wasn't running on 10.11, and I'm holding fire for the new generation Mac Pro.

That's a different method to the one I used and, had I known about it, is probably the method I would have opted for. I had to go through two firmware updates and a PRAM reset.
