    Model iMac7,1 is a mid-2007 iMac (20" or 24").

    With at least 2GB of memory it can support El Capitan (OS 10.11).

    You can go direct to El Capitan from OS 10.6.8.

    Note: Personally, I like to install new operating systems on a separate partition from the old OS. I do this in case there is some software or some drivers that are not supported by the new OS (the driver for my scanner is an example). When I need to use my scanner, I start up in OS 10.6.8, otherwise I start up in the latest OS X on my Mac.
