    Bought a Late 2013 MBP and want to do a clean install of Mavericks. First I am unable to download Mavericks from App Store, error message stating does not meet requirements. I do have a USB Drive of the installer, however when I attempt to boot from it I get an gray screen with an X. Any suggestions?

    Attempted to contact Apple Care and they stated I couldn't install because the machine is already running Mavericks. I understand that but would like to install from scratch.

    Wouldn't a "restore" work? i.e., reboot, hold down "option" key at startup, and then choose the 'recovery" drive to reinstall Mavericks form the existing recovery drive? Isn't there a way to do that so the install is "clean" and you can elect "or not elect" to restore any "non-original" data from Time Machine, etc. as you please?
