Upgraded my hard disk, and restored from a Time Machine backup. Used DiskMakerX to create Mavericks install USB disk a while ago.
Before doing anything it’s handy to have:
- Username, password, and IP number of the NAS (especially if helping someone else)
- Lots of time. Once it starts restoring we can leave it running. To get it into perspective, my 200GB backup was restored in 13 hours on a 100Mbps connection. No gigabit connection here.
To make sure the restore utility finds the backup, open terminal after booting from the installation media:
cd /Volumes mkdir TimeMachine mount -t afp afp://<username>:<password>@<ip_address>/Volumes/TimeMachine hdid /Volumes/TimeMachine/<backup_name>.sparsebundle
Close terminal, go to the restore utility and the time machine backup should be there.

Upgrading, received an error:
The file has been moved to: /opt/local/var/macports/distfiles/file/file-5.15.tar.gz.html Error: org.macports.checksum for port libmagic returned: Unable to verify file checksums
Downloaded the file manually and the upgrade continues. Removed OpenDNS from my dnsmasq.
Attempt to upgrade MacPorts (to 2.2.1) after Mavericks failed:

Remedy: Install command line tools
The install command line tools button is no longer there in Xcode.
