    Hi. I´ve already sold my macbook and order the new Macbook Air.

    It will have Mountain Lion but my Time Machine its from Mavericks DP8

    What should i do for install Mavericks and TM like my actual macbook?

    Load DP1 on USB, boot from USB, delete SSD, install DP1, update to DP8, migrate time machine?

    Thats the correct order? I have doubts about recovery partition. When partitioning should i leave alone the recovery from 10.8 or, should i erase all partitions and make only one partition and install on it 10.9? It will create a new recovery for 10.9 automatically?


    Sorry about my english.

    If you have a Mac Developer's license, I would go ahead and download DP4 onto your new machine, then install up to DP8 and recover the Time Machine from there; this is what I did for my Mac Mini.

    Hope this helps!
