Today I saw that Mavericks was available for free through the App Store so like everyone else I attempted to install it. After it finished downloading I attempted to run the installed, and saw that it had failed. However, I was not smart during this whole process up to this point. I neglected to make a backup of my installation of Lion, and after restarting my computer after the failure found that I could no longer boot into the Mac partition and that I was getting bounced straight to the recovery partition. It has been sometime since I have done a proper back up so I am currently attempting to attach my HDD from my MBP to my Mac Mini to recover my Bookmarks, and iPhone back ups. However I am unsure on how to access them with the drive attached as an external HDD. If anyone could help me out with this it would be appreciated. I have tried searching the forum and google for a solution, but I am not finding an answer. I can't use the hold option in the go menu because it only opens it up in finder for my mac mini. I do have a windows computer available as well if that might help me in this process. Thanks!
