    Use proper syntax if you're asking for help, will be easier to all of us who use paragraphs and periods. I didn't even read what you wrote, cause of this brick of letters.

    I installed OS X El Captain on my Mac Pro and installed my GeForce GTX 650, only to find out that Lion cannot be used to partition the drive after updates. Not a problem; I restored my main partition prior to updating, then update the main install. I then boot into my secondary install and update my main. Unfortunately, that seems to have stopped it from booting. I also have no access to the boot menu, due to the fact that I am using a PC-version GTX 650. So what do I do? I load my custom Windows 7 disk, delete the partition, and then it boots! Unfortunately, it seem that I cannot create a new partition in the newly-unallocated space. I decide to deal with it and live with having less space for a while. Later, I reinstalled the original 7300GT, booted off a Snow Leopard disk, which allowed me to format the drive.
    I have since reinstalled the GTX 650 once more, and am having issues getting any OS X installer to load. I have tried Mavericks from the soft tool; that showed up in the boot menu when I had the older 7300GT installed. Any ideas?

    Source - I am a high school reading teacher and am quite used to poor grammar. Also, take it easy on the poor fellow; maybe English isn't his native language.

    When you don't worry about "tat kind of stuff" many, like me, don't worry about reading what you have written.

    Actually, English is my primary language. When I'm online, I don't worry about things such as proper grammar. I actually typed up my first post at 2AM and forgot to submit it. Haha!

    Seriously though, as has been stated, if you're looking for help it's best to take a few moments to ensure that you're communicating in a way that most people can understand. Just a friendly tip :)
