Should i update bios before start?,

i have an old one, and don't now that new bioses changing something,

for ex. to uefi (instalation method chameo vs clover),

any suggestions about os ver to install 10.9 or 10.10?

for os use what you can get your hands on if you have latest then use that. for boot loaders either will work but each has it's drawbacks. use the one you feel most comfortable using. me personally i use clover as i got tired of patching kernel's for power management manually after every update. and my machine is UEFI.

Ok, smile on my face, one step deeper, i'm writing now from virtual (wmvare),

machine of Yosemite, in AppStore i see only El Capitan,

there is no earlier versions of OS X,

so can i go ahead with pre/installation and download El Capitan???

Latest released version of myHack (v3.3.1) does not support anything past Mavericks. As such, you have to use a "manual" method to build your USB installer. There are dozens of threads on this matter on this forum (and others). Look it up in the "Supported models with guides" section.

 

You may then choose between Clover or Enoch bootloader, depending on your fancy. Personally, I find Clover much more difficult for beginners to grasp compare to Enoch, but it's much more powerful than a basic bootloader.
