Mac 10.9 Mavericks install a little tricky this time

I tried to install Mavericks (MacOS 10.9), but it stopped because it could not create a Recovery Partition.

After some research,

  • I installed Mavericks onto an external USB drive, 
  • booted from that, 
  • formatted the Mac HD partition, 
  • installed to that and 
  • Boom, I was done. 
Note any drive to be installed to needs to formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled)

Then I upgraded Windows on the Boot Camp partition to 8.1 but that went pretty smooth.
