Hey folks! I need to install OSX Mavericks on an iMac (2010) whose hard drive is currently dead, and I was hoping to do this using a bootable thumb drive (that is to say: I'm planning on installing OSX Mavericks on the thumb drive, and using *that* as the iMac's hard drive from here on out - way cheaper than replacing the internal drive!) Here's the issue: the computer I have to set this stuff up on is a MBP running Snow Leopard. Soooo...here are the questions: 1) Is this even possible? I know that the OSX iMac install is different than the OSX MBP install. 2) Would it be easier/better at this point to install Snow Leopard on the iMac and then upgrade to Mavericks, or should I go straight to Mavericks? Any thoughts/direction would be *much* appreciated!
