Hi there.

Before anything: great site, great stuff :D

Which is the easiest way to get Fusion Drive on Mavericks?

I've searched on the forums but I cannot find a comprehensible guide.

Specificaly with the following hardware:
Gigabyte Z77M-D3H
Intel Core i5-3570K
AMD Radeon 7xxx

I've tried several times with no luck so far. Booting without USB drive is specially problematic for me.

Greetings!

Hi,

To my knowledge this guide works with Mountain Lion and Mavericks:

The search facility yields some other threads on the same subject:

I used Neilhart's guide -- it worked well for me.

We've been using a fusion drive, made with a 128GB SSD and a 1gb HD. It's been nice having a fast disk without worrying about dividing files onto different disks. We haven't had any problems so far, and we upgraded to Mavericks without any serious issues. I keep everything backed up with Time Machine and an online backup (Crashplan) just in case.
