Hi I am using a sony vaio laptop. I am trying to install mavericks on another partition on the same hard disk because I read dual boot is possible. But my installation process failed. I kept trying and trying but it failed. Now my question is can I boot back to windows 7? Like I previously did. Can anybody help me with this?

i have dual boot.

 

windows 8 and niresh 10.9

 

what i did is this:

 

boot niresh and create 2 partitions

 

1) extended journaled

2) fat32

 

exit niresh

 

insert win8 cd or usb and installed on the second partition

 

install it normally and after doing this go back to boot with your niresh and install it in the first partition.

 

bingo, you`ll have dual boot

Thanks for the reply mate. That is exactly what I was trying to do. But my problem is I cannot get into window nor mavericks. Mavericks cannot be installed, windows 7 which I already have is not booting. Is there any way I can boot windows 7?

Hi guys, I had a problem booting windows 7 after trying to install mavericks, because mavericks installation failed I couldn't get work any OS. But now my windows is working fine. I gonna tell what I did. I don't know whether someone has a topic or not. But sometimes this will help someone who wants to make a dual boot but stuck installing mac and wants to go back to windows.

 

1. Take a bootable windows 7/8 USB or DVD

2. Like you are installing a fresh copy boot it from the USB/DVD

3. Go to repair and click it

4. Restart.. Boom.. Windows is working.

 

but guys what I can't understand is "why mavericks installation is failing"

    • Hi guys, managed to make a hackintosh and everything is going great (Wifi, cpu ECT)   But it's pretty damn slow, i tried one of my favorite lightweight games to test (The Ultimate Doom) and it could barely run THAT! This is my first time and i have no idea how to get my 8570 to work.. Probably should have read a bit, eh? Lol.   And no I don't plan on using my hackintosh for gaming, but god so slow..   Thanks, help would be very appreciated. Edit: It's the dedicated version btw, and in about my mac I see "Graphics Display 3 MB" maybe the issue?  
    • Trying to boot to the installer but I get instant reboot after the following: I am using the following flag (I tried a variation - I need USBBusFix=Yes otherwise it fails even earlier): All my USB devices turn off just before it reboots, so I'm guessing it loses connection to the USB install media - but I can't work out why it's disabling all the USB's. CPU: AMD FX 8350 (8-core)
      RAM: 12GB HyperX Fury
      Motherboard: AsRock Fatal1ty 990FX Killer
      GPU: Gigabyte 4GB NVIDIA GTX 960
    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. Thanks! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
