So I want to update 10.8.5 To 10.9 Mavericks So I can use FCPX ect.  Im using Clover Boot loader right now to boot between my osx drive and windows 7, with 1 storage drive with that. any recommendations for install guide, ? I know its basically just create usb stick with clover and mavericks ap on osx and format the drive then install ect. should I save any kexts or plist or anything?

Ill Also be using my old 8gb flash drive with 10.8.5 to create the usb stick with so that will all be erased.

So Do i just download 10.9 from ap store or? also do I have to change XMP memory profile to off like default?

NTLDR is Missing

06 September 2014 - 07:29 AM

So basically I built this system little over a year ago, I just got my new 8gb of ram and new r4 blackout case ect.  Anyways I tried installing the new ram in the other two slots , exact same ram. ect .  I had a slight overclock at 4.2 ghz on the cpu and memory xmp profile on my old 8gb ram so it shows 1600mhz in osx.  It just reposts over and over and over when I tried it for first time then I remembered I had to reset the bios ect and set achi again and all that, Well that all happened and I figured that if I tured the Mode from IDE to ACHI it would fix it , well it did. Now I competlely removed the old ram and installed new ones in the same slots and they work fine I have CPU z info open and I can post a pic of it if you guys want.  When i boot pressing F12 I select the ssd with windows on it and windows boots fine. SO i have no idea. maybe Clover boot loader issue? or?

So right now I have a 500gb HDD that is pretty slow compared to my Windows 128GB samsung ssd. Id like it to be as fast on this side too.  Ive seen people get software and a USB to Sata3 or sata 6 connector i believe and they can transfer the data on the drive to the new Ssd. like a Clone I guess? Before I do this and go out and buy a ssd to test this , First off will it work?  if not I guess I can just keep this original hard drive with osx on it. thanks for any advice.
