Make with Carbon Copy Cloner a clone of your system. If you have a guid formated hd and free space make a new partion and install 10 8.4 on it. Only for System around 15 GB are enough. If everthing is ok, you can enlarge this partion then.

 

Have fun.

Thanks dear... i am having GUID Partition table and already have two partition as Macintosh HDD and DATA HDD on 1TB HD... 1st partition is left with 114 gb enough space according to your suggestion...now the thing is, if i clone with CCC ...and any thing messy happens, will it boot back to restore...??? as i have seen many queries regarding blinking cursor..with ccc too...becoz it does not backup boot loader file...i dont fall into risking my system, as i have tonnes of  recording softwares installed and some of them have really crazy patching methods...now back to point 1 after installation of 10.8.4 how will my softwares work on to it...as they are on 10.7.2....??? :(

You have to install the bootloader too. If you have space on your firewire hd and the port is bootable do the clone there and you have a working backup on an other hd. This would be the best solution. If you have a hd crash and your clone is on the same disk, then it is lost. Even if you have to pull out the external hd out of the enclouser to you it internal for being bootable with it, seems to be better. You can emigrate your programs to 10 8.4. If they are 64 bit, there should be not a real problem. Perhaps you can get some updates to be compatible with them to ML.

 

Have fun.
