I have installed Snow Leopard 10.6.3 on my laptop. when I update to 10.6.8 it does not load up correctly. If a friend downloaded Mavericks from the app store and put it on a disk or usb drive for me, could I install the Mavericks update through 10.6.3 using the Mavericks install guide?

Also, how do I find out what drivers are used under 10.6.3 and is it possible to load them back in after the 10.6.8 update using Multibeast as I think it is a driver issue causing 10.6.8 to not load correctly?

Thanks in advance for your help guys.

Please provide complete details in your profile/signature
(Profile/Settings link in upper right corner of this site)

System: manufacturer/model + bootloader(Clover/Chameleon/Chimera)
CPU: detailed CPU model + motherboard chipset
Graphics: all graphics devices + laptop internal screen resolution

For example, typical Ivy laptop:
System: HP ProBook 4540s (Clover)
CPU: i5-3320m/HM76
Graphics: HD4000, 1366x768

Use CPU-Z on Windows to find CPU (Core iX-xxx) and motherboard chipset (HMxx), and graphics capabilities. For a laptop, these details are important and affect critical installation procedures.
