How do i downgrade back to mavericks from yosemite?
using 2013 retina macbook pro 15 inch
If you don't know that, you're obviously not a developer, or even a power user.
I hope you have backups.
You can't downgrade from one OS X to another, never have been able to.
What you need to do it clean install Mavericks, or restore from a time machine backup.
I love these types of threads because they are almost always from people who are not developers that downloaded a pirated copy of software and installed it on their only computer and usually without a backup no less.
give the guy the benefit of the doubt
they are letting anyone apply to get it for free no need to be a pirate, the guys just a noob
The Developer Preview is not part of the public beta as far as I know. Plus I'm not one for making excuses for people.
Can't "downgrade" an OS X installation. You'd have to clean install mavericks via a bootable USB etc. Wonder how you got Yosemite without knowing how to go back in case something bad happened with the installation.
You can downgrade if you have some time machine thing backup thing or something else thing form you old partition thing.
The Public Beta is not available yet.
It's not that hard. I'm sure it's up on torrent sites everywhere.
What a helpful bunch around here, huh?
Boot up holding option-command-r to launch internet recovery (it's different than just holding option and going to recovery). This will allow you to recover with mountain lion instead of being relegated to trying to install Yosemite again.
Best of luck.
thanks so much
