Pandora's Box is a new Tool that can be used to create your own installer for Lion 10.7, Mountain Lion 10.8 and newly arrived Mavericks 10.9 from either the retail app or its .dmg image file.
Also included is a post-installation utility to apply additional fixes after installing or updating OS X.
These features are great, but you will see Pandora's Box beta2 also adds some additional functionality to the installation process. Since much of the configuration and customization can be done during the OS X installation process, once completed, you can immediate boot into your newly working OS X install without any additional setup.
Pandora's Box beta2 is available for download in our Downloads Section
