    So after installing and encountering problems that make it pretty much unusable, I attempted to boot into Recovery and clean install, only I was greeted with a "Contact AppleCare" message. What the hell is going on. I am growing furious by the second. Currently re-downloading Mavericks on a separate machine to re-install on my unusable Yosemite driven macbook.

    That's why it's Beta software. If you get mad over stuff like this, should you be using pre-release software?

    They may have taken Photo Booth out for now because I'm missing it as well.

    I have other machines to use....getting upset is a normal human response when things don't go the way you expect them to. I was fully aware of the risk of running a beta....sorry for expressing my frustration online. I promise to never ever do it again.

    I've made that mistake before. I'm currently installing Yosemite on a separate partition just in case.

    Has anyone tried internet recovery? Internet recovery should default to installing the OS that shipped with the computer. Don't wanna try Yosemite on my macbook yet until I know for sure if I can go back without having to make a USB from another computer. From what I understand you should be able to boot to internet recovery (Command+Option+R), erase HD in disk utility. And reinstall whatever OS came with the computer (Mavericks for example). Please let me know

    Why not just install Yosemite on a separate partition?

    I just installed it on my MP, and it is horrible. The biggest annoyance is that my internet is no longer working on this computer. which means no updates. they hopefully, will have 10.10.1 out within a week or so.
