Sorry to just jump in here, but no, that wouldn't technically be a clean install. Unless you specify for only certain folders to back up, TM backs up the entire system, much like Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC is bootable, TM is not).That's great to hear guys.
When you recommend a clean install. Would this method work:
1) Make an entire time machine backup of your entire system.
2) Install a clean fresh copy of OS X Yosemite final
3) Restore from time machine backup
I would hate to have to reinstall and configure all my apps, that would take forever. Would this method qualify as a clean install too?
But I am correct in advising to use Migration Assistant, am I not?Sorry to just jump in here, but no, that wouldn't technically be a clean install. Unless you specify for only certain folders to back up, TM backs up the entire system, much like Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC is bootable, TM is not).
when we get the official version will I have to download the whole NEW OFFICIAL file again or just the remaining part ,as an update?
what I mean is,
will the official version be a small update to the DP or will we have to download everything fresh like someone else would do , as if they were still using mavericks?
Certainly for Mavericks, last year, Apple used terms such as these:The final version is (always I think??) a full installer and not a delta.
We can abbreviate that … simply:… probably even use the full installer to update developer previews to the final version. …
Well last year the final golden master turned out to be the same build as public release for mavericks 10.9 (i.e., build 13A603). So developers basically didn't have to do anything again till the first 10.9.1 betas were released.Can you help me understand exactly how to go from the DP to the full version when it releases?
Better to use Setup Assistant, which is like MA but only appears at the end of the install process. To use MA you have to create a temporary user at the end if the installation, then later migrate in your users, and they can get different UUIDs which can cause problems.
