    So...

    I wanted to reinstall Yosemite, I booted into network recovery, and formatted my disk.

    Now I want to install Yosemite GM3, but when I go to install, it validates my computer eligibility, then I enter my Apple ID, and it says I can't install because it's not avaliable... LOL

    Now, what, I have access to a Windows disk I'm currently using.

    Can I make a bootable USB installation disk for yosemite on Win8?

    Thanks

    You'll either have to wait until Yosemite is released later today, or have your rMBP download Mavericks.

    To download the Yosemite beta, you have to be signed into the App Store (not available on WinDoze) under you're ID

    1) You can download the latest Yosemite installer file from the developers portal, and then upgrade the builds.

    2) Wait until Yosemite is released.

    Yes, I can download the latest Yosemite dmg, but then, how can I burn the DMG on Windows?
