Mavericks on MBR partitioned disk
2 2

Question

Hello everybody!

 

I have a question: as in my signature, I have OSX 10.8.5. Just for test, I tried to upgrade from Apple Store to Mavericks 10.9.

Download works, but when I try to install it I get a message like "You can't install Mavericks on a disk that is not a GPT disk".

 

My main board does not support EFI, so my question is:

 

Can I install NIresh OSX 10.9 onto an MBR partitioned disk?

 

Thanks to everybody

Two opposite replies, I'm a little confused :)

 

There's an only solution: try! ;)

 

I'll wait the ISO image, because 3-4 times I've downloaded the DMG one and I always obtained a corrupted file :(

 

However, thanks for your replies!

Sorry for that. If you use Mavericks from the store, i don't think you can, at least that what it says the apple website. And it seem that Niresh distro works.

You Have Downloaded Mavericks from Appstore Its Not Modified and Does Not Support MBR

You Can Install My Distro 10.9
