    Hey, is there any way to switch back to Mountain Lion when i only have Mavericks installed on a single HDD, like downgrading OS? There doesn't seem to be any problem with iOS 7/6 as it sees 6 as the latest official one but not here, i'm not comparing mobile and desktop OS just stating...So if there's a way please let me know...

    No worries. You can break out one of your external backups they taught you to make in Developer School and just boot from one of them.

    If you're less than 50% capacity you could:

    1) Create a second partition
    2) Move all important data onto that partition
    3) Wipe and install over your mavericks partition
    4) Copy back all data from second 'data' partition
    5) Erase the 'data' partition
    6) Expand the new mavericks partition to the entire size of HDD

    Omg u so funny lel xD. Clearly he forgot about his external backup while asking the question.
