Question: how did you manage to get the Maverick installation on to an 
USB stick to be able to install 10.10 from an USB stick?

(And when you are answering this then maybe you might come across a bug 
which I believe was mentioned about getting Maverick on to a USB stick 
for installation.....but I may be wrong - I often "hear the bell" but 
cannot remember "where the sound came from" (a bad, but brave, 
translation of an old saying... :-( ))


Went to a discount massage parlour the other day. Wasn't 'til I paid me money that I found out that it was self-service.
