To acquire Mavericks you must get it from the App Store so as to agree to the licensing agreement - there are other ways of acquiring it but that breaks the licensing agreement, and consequently discussion of it breaks the rules here at MR - in my understanding

All the information you need is in, or attached to that youtube video.

Just some advice - if you attempt to install 10.9.2 ontop 10.9.1, when you reboot you'll get the flashing finder which means the update totally corrupted the OS and be forced to reinstall 10.9.1
Errr… No. Totally corrupted? I don't think so!

All that will have happened is that the update will have overwritten Tiamo's bootloader - replace the bootloader and you'll be good to go.

Hello Rors, I don't think it matters that much - I believe that I used 1.4.2 when I installed 10.9.0

Mavericks 10.9.1

Hi Robert Davies
I was just thinking just before i go a head and do this install.
If i got my self a second hard drive could i install mavericks 10.9.2 on it
and keep all my other programs on my first hard drive with 10.6.8
So on start up i could have the option of booting in to what ever operating system i wont .
Would this work.
Thanks

I don't see why not…

Personally, I'd use Migration Assistant on your 'new' 10.9.2 and import all your programs, settings and files from 10.6.8 - though obviously anything that needs PPC/rosetta, will not work.
