    Okay I have one user reporting that the install is looking at his HD as time machine back ups which is bull.

    ​Anyone else run into this?

    That’s what they said... as with the iOS 7 version, it may take a day or so to sort out...

    Hey guys I have a question. How can we do a clean install now? Does it download the Mavericks install as a DMG file or does it install it on top of your existing OS? I want to do a clean install to get rid of things I don't need.

    Not a clean install. There are ways to create a bootable Mavericks from the downloaded update app. Google is your friend here.

    Well, I suppose I should logoff via my MacBook and read the forums via Tapatalk so I can download Mavericks. Thanks for the tip...

    Thanks after it finished downloading, I was searching around the package contents and found the DMG file. Already made a boot device. Time is install when I have some free time.

    Just let it do its thing... did that for me too. That last minute seemed like forever... and the reboot after install seemed to be an eternity too...

    Same thing here, I was just starting to panic when it came back up.

    The whole process was very smooth but the installation took much longer than I expected.
