Hi, Alfredo I would like to ask you about this Boot Camp. And how is the Boot Camp? Does it work properly like in a PC? Thank you very much. Thank you very much for your reply, Alfredo. I hope everything goes well. User profile for user: Ranjhasaab Ranjhasaab. Hey I hope you can help me. I can add the partition but Win 7 won't install to the new one if already partitioned to run Yosemite as a dual boot option unless there's a trick I'm not aware of. Any ideas? Dev Preview 3 is great and dark them added but I hate the menu color being orange.

I hope they add a setting to change that to black or something.


I believe boot camp won't work unless you have an unpartitioned drive. So, installing Windows before Yosemite is the better bet, because you can supposedly add partitions after, but not before.

  • Also, whenever you do add a partition afterward for Yosemite, it can sometimes muck up the Windows installation, though a little messing around in Terminal can get it back into working condition. I did this and then the Mavericks partition turned into an OSX install. It wouldn't allow me access to the Mavericks partition and simply launched the setup for Yosemite when attempting to boot from that partition.

    I have the exact same problem. The Mavericks partition still exists and I can still boot to the recovery partition, but I cannot seem to get rid of the OSX Install partition. I want my Mavericks back.

    Anybody know how? For the people having this issue. I ended up having the same problem. What I did is I changed the startup disk to my Mavericks partition and it worked fine. I assume you mean installing it on a second internal HDD? I don't have a second internal hard disk drive, but I believe the setup would be similar to a bootable USB setup, as in, you go into Disk Utility, drag your downloaded OS X Yosemite Beta 2 Or whatever version you have into the side panel, go into your second hard drive and navigate to the restore tab, drag your OS X Yosemite into the source field, and then your second hard drive to the destination and click "Erase" when prompted so that the contents of the second HDD will be replaced with the contents of the OS X Yosemite I'm not sure if this is what you were asking, or if you may not understand all that I'm saying, but if you need clarification feel free to ask additional questions and I'll go more in depth about what to do.

    Hope I helped!

    Wait, I just had a realization, install OS X Yosemite as normal, but when it prompts you to choose the installation location, choose your second internal HDD I think this should do it, so you really don't need to worry about partitioning and all that, but in case I'm wrong, refer to my first attempt at explanation. I installed YOSE Panicked - I wanted mavericks back. Using time machine I was able to boot holding "R" down on the keyboard. Now if only I could get win7 installed. I've been a computer geek PC since JakeGould I may have formatted it for MBR, assuming that Windows would need it to be in that format for it to install.

    I ended up using a DVD instead, which worked. I just realized that my Bootcamp partition is also GPT because the whole disk has to be.


    That makes sense now! Thank you! I was under the impression somehow that Windows had to be installed on an MBR formatted drive. AppleKarthik AppleKarthik 11 2 2 bronze badges.
