Aloha from Maui, first thread; Mahalo for your help I have a 'Snow Leopard / iLife 11 / iWork 09' family pack, and was hoping to clean install all my 'family' to Mavericks. One reason to not go Yosemite is my Adobe CS 5.5, which will go on the two newest rigs. Looking at my App Store purchases tab, I see; Keynote, Numbers, Pages, OS X Mavericks, all dated Oct. 9. The 'buttons' for Keynote, Number and Pages says 'update' - I got carried away and hit the 'button' for Mavericks before noticing if it also said 'update'. I paused after only 2.3 MB of 5.33 GB. I hope to put Mavericks on my external HD, so I can clean install Mavericks on all 4 computers. My first project is the iMac, which I got off eBay, fully loaded with software, with OS on SSD, but after sitting for many months, it would not boot up. During my fussing, I ran Disk Utility, showing both the SSD and 3TB HD as OK, but could not recover, so I installed full family pack mentioned above. One annoyance is that I can not 'see' the SSD anymore? Then, when going for OS X upgrade, only Yosemite is available Rumor has it that I CAN download Mavericks, since it is in my App Store purchase history, right? If I resume that paused 'update', is that the Mavericks installer? I'm not interested in a Yosemite installer. Assuming I do end up with a Mavericks installer on the Mac Pro HD, how do I install something on the external HD that allows me to install Mavericks on the other computers (and lastly the Mac Pro, fresh, clean)?
