So just to be clear,

Disk Utlitiliy --> Select my SSD ---> Partitions tab --> 2 partitions ---> 1st partition format as Mac OSX Entended Journaled .........for the second Partition what should I format it is as that I can install windows 7 on it at a later date ?

You can select Mac OSX Extended, then later when you want to install Windows 8, use installer to delete that partition and create new NTFS.

I am up to step 6 in the guide


"6. Install screen will appear, use Disk Utility to format your drive as GPT, create a Mac OS X Extended (Journaled) partition and Install Mavericks. The installer will extract necessary files to "Install OS X Mavericks" (not your target partition). This will end PHASE 1."




I have wiped my ssd and created 2 partitions
Both Mac OS X extended journaled.


I have named one of them MAVINST (90gb)
and the other WINDOWS. (90gb)


For step 6 can I conform that I now choose install mavericks and then select the MAVINST drive and then hit install ?


the wording in step 6 suggests that I may be doing this wrong ?


The installer progress bar to MAVINST has been on "about a second remaning" for the last ten minutes or so... The light on the USB stick is still flashing away happily though suggesting something is happening? Is this normal ?

Be patient. It should eventually finish.

That is normal. Was the same for me. Just be patient as Rehabman already said... ;-)
