First Time Installing 10.9 Outside Of Vm Environment

Question

O.K. Long story short I'm planing on doing a proper wipe of Windows 7 and doing a fresh install of 7, 8.1, and Mavericks 10.9.  System Specs below.  I'm assuming for Mavericks just the .dmg image,  win32diskimager-v0.9-binary.zip, and set the SATA mode to AHCI.  I've already ran win32diskimager-v0.9-binary.zip and have mavericks on my one USB key.  Basically I just want to know what order to install in and if I am missing any steps and or needed utilities. I know it's recommended to install the OS's on separate drives but as you can see from the image below I would rather not. The drive in red is a 300GIG

 

Mainboard : Asus Maximus Formula

Chipset : Intel X38

Processor : Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 3000 MHz

Physical Memory : 4096  MB  (2 x 2048 DDR2-SDRAM)

Hard Disk : Seagate ST3320620AS ATA Device (320GB)

Hard Disk : Seagate ST3500830AS ATA Device (500GB)

Hard Disk : Western Digital WD10EARS-00Y5B1 ATA Device (1000GB)

Hard Disk : Western Digital WD3000GLFS-01F8U0 ATA Device (300GB)

Hard Disk : Seagate ST315005 41AS (1500GB)

DVD-Rom Drive : Toshiba-Samsung CDDVDW SH-S223Q

that's a lot of your disk size amounts and partitions :D

well, perhaps you should start from windows 7, then windows 8.1, then mavericks 10.9

oh anyway, you've downloaded mavericks.dmg right? and the files which you've downloaded, it contains only mavericks.dmg, or any else inside it the zip. ?

thank you

i downloaded niresh's mavericks 10.9 .dmg, then downloaded win32diskimager-v0.9-binary.zip and ran the Win32DiskImager.exe, selected all files then navigated to themavericks 10.9 .dmg file and selected it then selected write to write it to the flash drive,  i rebooted and got the one apple screen then after that test i rebooted back into windows.

Well actually you can just change them whenever you need to haha. So, have you succeed installing Mavericks?

 

from everything i've read yes i can go ahead and resize my windows partition, reboot, change to the ahci mode, install mavericks, but i would have to go to the windows command and change some items in windows to be able to boot back into it. personally i think for me it's just going to be easier to wipe the drive, format the windows 7 and 8.1 partitions, reboot, change to ahci, then install the os's including mavericks in the appropriate order.

if your windows is Updated to latest then you don't need to reinstall windows just change settings from sata to ahci....get your your windows working..

o.k. for the future that's good to know, however for what i want to do now it's a moot point since i installed win 7 on 3/31/2013 i'm 3 months overdue for a clean install, and i simply want to to a proper wipe of the drive and install of the os's.  while i really do appreciate the information i actually need what i asked in my firts post in this thread. thanks
