So as stated above, those are the specs. I though I'd list out the steps that on how I would plan to go about installing Mavericks on this beast. Please and pretty please correct me If I missed out on anything and what I should be aware off.


1. Download Mavericks 10.9 off of mac store.

2. Download and install MyHack 

3. Open Disk Utility and create a single partition usb drive .{Mac Os Journaled}

    Do I select the GUID or the MBR option ??


4. Open MyHack and follow the EDP documentation. Include Nvidia D830 Bootpack

5. Replace Wifi card of the D830 with DW 1390{Broadcom 4311}

6. Do I go to the BIOS of the computer and enable AHCI ??

7. Plug in the Myhack flashdrive with usb mouse and keyboard at the ready just in case.

8. Enter -v {verbose mode} and let it run it's course


If Language Selection appears

9. Fill in the blanks.

10. Install E.D.P 

11. Select Config and build from d830 database.

Is that how I should go about doing it ?
