    Well as the title says I am trying to format partition of my hard drive to mac extended so I could install Mavericks on it, is there a way to do this from Windows since disk utility program which I tryed using when I first tried to install Mac doesn't work for some reason?

    thx :D

    If you are on Windows you will have to use the shareware MacDrive.

    Hmm well in the end I tried a lot of programs, but only GParted actually worked properly for me, so that's my reccomendation to Win users if they want to partition to hfs+ :D
    thx for your reply
