In the app store says upgrade... how to only download and do a clean install?
I'm not sure, but here's what I'm trying so far:
I've clicked the upgrade button, and then in the purchases tab I was able to click Cancel on the download (might have to hold Option button...). Once that was done, the Download button showed up next to Mavericks, so now I'm waiting for the download to finish to see what happens. After that I'll probably try and see if http://liondiskmaker.com/ will work with it.
I would like to know as well.
What's the general opinion: Is upgrading (nowadays) as "good" and reliable as a clean new install? (speed etc.) Every year the same question here, as upgrading would be easier, but my OCD voice says "do a clean install"...
Are there any updated clean-install walk-through's now that we have App Store access? Potentially ones like this from the past will work?
Is my Bootcamp Windows 7 going to be affected by a clean install of Maverick? And how about Parallels Desktop 7? Is it compatible?
can you go the upgrade route, then if you fancy doing a clean install of Mavericks later, just go into recovery mode and do it from there?
let's see what happens..
If you want to use liondiskmaker, make sure to download Beta ver. 3, which will work with Mavericks. The newest released version does not.
I just installed 10.9 and just did an upgrade, and so far so good. (With a good back up sitting close by) Everything seems a little snappier. File tagging (big deal), new activity monitor, safari snappier (always is at first) and multiple displays. Not sure if I like, dislike or even care about the multiple screens implementation. (Haven't tried with my ATV's yet. Might be fun.)
The one thing I won't ever be using - The iCloud keychain. This does not give me the feeling of security one should get.
Would this upgrade affect photoshop cs5, illustrator cs5, indesign cs5, etc
or Quickbooks 2011?
could you not just upgrade and then do a clean install from the recovery partition
I upgraded yesterday but Photoshop CS6 does not open for some reason, Bridge works fine though
Working fine here!
Just did a replace from Time Machine working fine now
