    Article: Simplest Mac OS X Installation Guide

    I'm putting together a new machine and I do NOT have another intel mac available. I do have this ibm mac that i'm using now.
    Parts are the gigabyte ga z87x ud7th, version 2 with bios f4 and the other parts recommended in the guide. I'll be using on board video to start with, and a hdmi to dvi cable.

    I already have the machine running windows 7 and I'll be putting osx on a seperate SSD. I know to remove the windows drive to start with.

    At the risk of asking a dumb question, or two....

    1.
    If I follow the directions below, will I have wifi internet access after installing from the snow leopard dvd 10.6.3?
    I'm just unsure about the part where it says not to run MultiBeast. I guess I need to fully install 10.6.3 and run MultiBeast, install the wifi card, then update to 10.6.8 and skip MultiBeast at that point.

    Sorry for asking something that I should be able to figure out from the guides. I'm just getting very close to doing this and I want to have it figured out completely, before I start.

    2. If I want to try to run a firepro or radeon video card should I not upgrade to mavericks? What would be the best version of osx for those video cards?

    Thanks again. No more questions until I actually do this : )

    Bob

    I have a New MacBook Air with pre installed "Mavericks". I was going to construct a desktop system but haven't found a way to create the OS X UniBeast USB bootable installer from the pre-installed "Mavericks". Apple won't allow another download since the system came with it. I have built many PC based systems but OS X is a different creature. Any help would be appreciated.

    This doesn't work anymore with Sierra, right? Because Sierra needs OSX 10.7.

    It is way more complicated now, something like :

    1. Purchase Snow Leopard & Lion
    2. Create Clover USB for Snow Leopard (on windows or linux)
    2. Boot Snow Leopard DVD
    3. Install Snow Leopard
    4. Create bootable Lion USB
    5. Install Lion
    6. Boot Lion
    7. Download Sierra
    8. Create UniBeast USB
    9. Install Sierra
