Updating osx

I will continuously try possible methods and update in this blog when I succeeded with fresh installation of Yosemite on VMware workstation.Here is the existing OS X 10.9 on VMware workstation 10, Windows 8.1 host which will be used for upgrade.If you do not make regular backups of your Mac, it is not recommended to use an automated system update installation feature.

Consider editing the question or leaving comments for improvement if you believe the question can be reworded to fit within the scope.

Automatic Updates has been possible for Mac apps for quite some time, but up until now the system updates of Mac OS X were not part of that automatic installation option.

You can check for available updates, ignore packages, and install any or all Mac OS X Software Updates directly from the command line.

To see what updates are available, or to install a software update from the Terminal of OS X, you’ll use the ‘softwareupdate’ command as we’ll instruct below.

This is to inform that our earlier 10.9 virtual machine can be upgraded to OS X 10.10 Yosemite on VMware workstation with Windows host.

We have used pre installed Mavericks OS X 10.9 and online Apple app store Yosemite update installer for testing purpose and it worked well.If you don’t want your bandwidth to be used by software updates without your own trigger of that function, you can disable them instead by unchecking the appropriate settings in the System Preference App Store panel.While this feature is not for everyone, using Automatic Updates for system updates and for installed apps is a great option for those users who are forgetful and frequently fall behind on system updates, and for those who just want an automated maintenance schedule maintained for them.Important: If you’re going to use this automatic system update option, be sure that Time Machine backups of the Mac are allowed to be made on a regular schedule.Time Machine will do this automatically as long as it’s setup and the backup drive is available.You can skip the Apple ID login and use your earlier Mavericks password to login new OS X.
