    Your hardware will not work with an older version of OS X like Mavericks or Yosemite as Apple OS X/ macOS only has support if you are using El Capitan (10.11.5) or Sierra on Z170 hardware.

    Both Z87 and Z97 hardware is the most recent hardware that is able to use Mavericks:

    Is it possible to "upgrade" my mainboard from GA-Z68x to GA-Z77x ?
    Is there an easy way to mount the starting HDD with MacOS 10.9.5 from the "old" to the "new" mainboard and, perhaps, use Multibeast (or UniBeast?) on a starting USB stick to make any necessary changes (perhaps any specific DSDT.aml for GA-Z77x-d3h ???). I am looking for a fast solution - I think not many tried to "upgrade" the mainboard without a complete new install - right?

    PS: sorry for asking perhaps a very stupid question: I am currently not sure, where these changes will take place, probably on the mainboard, so it may not make any sense to try this: could I use Multibeast "in advance", I mean still on the Z68x-board, to better make any changes for the Z77x-board. I am currently confused about all this, since it is a while ago that I had setup the Z68 system (and rarely ever worked with it).

    You can only get Mavericks if you had downloaded it when it was available years ago, before it was pulled for newer editions of the OS. It would then be under your purchased tab in the MAS. You can still get El Capitan if that would be helpful to you.
