    I run a 2011 Mac with Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5.
    I got an error message when i tried to download the High Sierra software as my system is too old and it needs OS 10.8 to do it. Other forums seem to suggest it is possible. Any ideas?

    Good morning, @anhnhung073. I hope you are doing well.

    Yes, it is possible. I have 2011 iMac and was able to get High Sierra on it, but it's a multi-step process. I had to go to 10.8 first them upgrade to High Sierra. Here are a couple of links from Apple that should get you on the right track:

    Also, while you're researching that, feel free to head on over to the introduction section and say hello to the rest of the iMore community:

    Thanks.
