Reading through the post i understand that Haswell supports osx starting with 10.8.5. But in order to install higher OSX it is necessary to install 10.6.3? How do i do it if older version are not compatible. Can i directly install to 10.8.5?

Please help

I would recommend Mavericks. You can install 10.9.3 directly. You should be familiar with the process described here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/374-unibeast-install-os-x-mavericks-any-supported-intel-based-pc.html

I don't understand your question. The only one available is 10.9.3.

They aRe looking at the combo updates at the apple website and @op these will not work you will need a Mac or hackintosh to download mavericks through the Mac App Store if you don't have access to a Mac the. You need to buy the snow leopard retail DVD from apple and start from there
