    Hey Rick, just a thought. If one took the SSD out and loaded it with High Sierra and reinstalled the SSD, would it boot? I have read that you can do that for 2009 model iMacs.

    It's never a good sign when the MacGurus are baffled. I guess I'm going to start making phone calls to ISP and Apple. Now do I do that before or after I get the three sets of taxes done?
