About This File

Patched OSInstall.mpkg and OSInstall framework to allow installation on MBR partition.

 

To use these patched files you must create an installer using this method (Pandora's Box should also work). You can't just run the app downloaded from Mac App Store.

 

After creating the installer, run this command in terminal replacing "installer volume name" by the name of your installer drive. If it contains spaces, surround the name by " or precede each space with \ (you can just drag and drop the drive to terminal when typing the command)

sudo tar zxvf ~/Downloads/Mavericks_10.9.5_MBR_Patch.tar.gz -C /Volumes/"installer volume name"

If you download with Safari, it will automatically expand the gz, so the command should be

sudo tar xvf ~/Downloads/Mavericks_10.9.5_MBR_Patch.tar -C /Volumes/"installer volume name"

ple help

there was a problem reading mac os x installation disk

 

same here

but it worked when I just copied the two main files

I guess the given command breaks the permissions and owners, groups of files and directories

I will ask the uploader to fix these

In "Install OS X Mavericks.app" can not locate the two main files.

Or this patch just works on GM version?

Thanks a lot, very helpful :)

 

Possible to have this gem for 10.6.8 too ? I stick to this OS and i mirrored the install DVD to an USB key. Just want to move my Gigabyte with an Asus which needs a MBR formated disk. Thanks.
