Updating from 10.6 to 10.9 - What's the most easy way?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am working on a 10.6.8 system for quite some years now. But finally I would like to update to 10.9.1 now. 10.9.1 should run as stable as 10.6.8... I am using some Chameleon bootloader from 2013.


So here are my questions:


1. What bootloader should I install first? The best would be one that also works with 10.6.8. I guess a 10.9 fakesmc is required, too?


2. What's the most easy update process? Is a update possible or do I need a new install? Can I directly update in Finder or do I have to build some kind of install bootstick?


3. I use a patched ati kext for my ati 5750hd. Is the ati patching still the same in 10.9? 


4. Can I still execute 32 bit binaries on 10.9? This is essential for me since some hardware requires 32bit executables (no kexts).


Thanks for help!

1. boot loader use chameleon last version from section downloads

2. Fakesmc.kext section downloads too

3  not the same, all is new

4. no, 10.9 all 64bits

5. To install 10.9 the best option  is a clean Install, you can´t update 10.68 to 10.9
