comment How do I install Mavericks onto external HD but from inside VirtualBox
@Tetsujin: 1) OS X does NOT come with drivers for Virtual Box. Best you can get are fallback drivers. The performance is horrible. In addition to that, OS X does NOT remove drivers for components it does not see at the time of installation or first boot. It will load them if booted on real hardware. If you get problems there, reset the kext-cache. 2) Can you elaborate why you think it wouldn't work? I can't see any reason.

comment Why did my Mac reboot into the “Set up your new Mac” screen after a power failure?
Does it really do this? What is your concept of having no users? Broken /etc/passwd?

@konqui Vice versa for every other device firmware. Never seen a HDD firmware updater for OS X.

comment What info does a Mac broadcast and how to hide it?
1) OS X comes with an incredibly outdated userland. 2) If we are talking about using OS X as a server, we are talking about OS X Server. While it might be OK for a home user, professional users will find themselves on the shell immediately and thus could have used some real server OS in the first place. 3) A server OS that has a non-removable GUI, tends to refuse to boot headlessly and only boots on certain hardware?! 4) Some parts like smbx are NOT documented AT ALL. 5) Try setup routing that goes beyond Internet Sharing. There is NO way with stock tools!

Think about not using OS X. It is an awful server OS.

comment How can I ensure TRIM is enabled when installing Yosemite onto an SSD drive?
OK, yes, I can recommend this, too. You won't get any problems if you just install, copy, clone, rsync, whatever it onto an SSD. Just be aware that enabling Trim CAN cause such problems if done improperly. Nevertheless you should enable it.

comment How can I ensure TRIM is enabled when installing Yosemite onto an SSD drive?
Do you want to boot from the SSD inside an USB enclosure? This would be a waste of money. Did you ever use Trim Enabler? I don't think so, so "disabling Trim" before upgrading is not an option. Besides, I NEVER recommend upgrading an OS as it tends to leave clutter.

You should use smartmontools to check if your SSD is broken.
