    Hi,

    Using MBA 2011 1,7..
    Yosemite made it slow-working, slow-reactive, it's sad for me :(.
    I wont downgrade back.

    Any way, Yosemite is helpful for me just because of the continuity, and while I don't have iOS 8, it's useless for me!
    What about the interface? it is very beautiful, nothing bad or negative to say about the new design, I liked it very much!
    Hope I'll ever upgrade my mac to RMBP!

    How can I downgrade back to Mavericks?

    Gotta have a Time Machine backup to restore from according to Apple's instructions when downloading the Beta, but you could restore from a clone

    Without either of those you are likely SOL

    If you had read all the warnings and precautions about this, you would have known to either make a backup, install on a second partition or drive, or just wait till its out. Not trying to be rude but you really should have read more about this beta and whether or not you should have installed it. If you have no backups, you need get a hold of an OSX restoration/installation disc either from the apple store or online. If you reinstall that version, you will have to do a full wipe and all your data will be lost, so be sure to back up everything off the main hard drive.

    Wait it out. Your computer is probably still indexing. Search for something in Spotlight and you'll see an indexing progress bar.

    Like i said above if you have no backups, you need get a hold of an OSX restoration/installation disc or flash drive either from the apple store or online. If you reinstall mavericks or ML, you will have to do a full wipe and all your data will be lost, so be sure to back up everything off the main hard drive. Also, as the person above me said, try letting it sit for like half an hour at least and see if it runs better.

    Get Mavericks into USB and then reinstall OS. But it's better to copy your files into another partition, format the old one, install fresh OS and then transfer your files back.

    Thank you all!
    I have turned off all the effect and other back round processes to make a bit faster... I have even turned off the visually effects...

    Thank you all, I'm sure Apple will do it's job to satisfy us all!!!

    Have a nice day/night!!!

    Internet recovery will help download Mavericks, I think. Of course, I only was able to access internet recovery after I managed to delete my recovery partition, so I don't know if the recovery that should have been there (and that you likely have) can connect to the internet and download a new copy.
