There's nothing terribly tricky about recovery, so I don't think you'll have a problem. But I also don't think it'll help. But who knows!

An NVRAM reset isn't likely to do anything. Doing an fsck might help somewhat, and you should be able to do it from Recovery, no?

While erasing it might help somewhat, it seems more likely that...

It seems unlikely that their kext could have this kind of effect on your system. I'm guessing that you can't see the "CANNOT LOCATE" items because you turned off TRIM.

Correct. If you want to create another volume use Disk Utility. It's basically one click.

It's more likely that we're copying outside of what Finder's doing, and it doesn't "know" we did it. That's why I'm suggesting restarting it, which may "kick it" into looking at the actual drive, or...

Apologies for the delayed reply here - the notification of this post somehow went to junk!

I unfortunately don't know. I'm guessing whatever OS it came with - that's typically the case.

You definitely can’t run Mavericks with a new Mac. The old OS doesn’t support the new Mac’s hardware.

It has nothing to do with the partitioning. It has to do with the hardware support in the OS.
