    Trying to KEEP my file system in tact, do I skip this step? I've done this so many times and enough time passes that I forget each time.

    Just think about it logically, when you format a drive or partition everything is erased.

    Right, I know this. Basically I'm wondering if the definition of "new installation" means that no OSX has ever been installed on the drive or could reinstalling the OS be considered a "new installation". Seems vague. I keep updating and have been doing fine for about seven years or so, but I have my paranoid doofus moments.

    If you want to keep your data don't format the drive / partition.

    Hello, i started to learn about hackingtosh, I plan to install El Capitan on an "old" config

    Can i have explication about this ?
    "is recommended for 7/8/9+ Series CustoMac desktops and all UEFI ...."
    "is recommended for 5/6 Series CustoMac desktops and all BIOS ...."
    https://www.tonymacx86.com/resources/el-capitan-post-install-tools.294/

    Those numbers mean motherboard (chipset) series: i.e., a 7-series is a H/Z77 series motherboard and 5-series refers to the P55 or similar older motherboard series.

    The "Legacy" motherboards are the 5/6 series. While UEFI refers to the 7/8/9/10/20 series (modern BIOS) motherboards.

    I have done all the steps, one by one and all is great, I've created my boot USB without a problema, but when I boot my laptop and select boot from Mac Os, the Apple logo appears, then starts loading and after a few minutes it crashes, instead of the Apple logo, appears a error logo, a circle with a line in the middle.
