I want a standalone upgrade from an older osx (10.7.4) to the current mavericks.
There is the free upgrade in the app store which normally would be perfect -- but my internet connection at home is slow and spotty. The upgrade is 5GB in the store. I get about 1GB, and my connection drops, and now I have to start over.
So what I want to do is get a standalone way of doing the upgrade -- this would allow me to use my other computer (faster connection) and sneakernet (use a USB stick) to transfer the file(s) to the Mac.
The combo and delta standalone updates you can get only apply within the same version.
Does anyone know of a way to do this standalone upgrade, even if I would have to apply multiple installs / updates / upgrades?
I suppose other solutions could include a multiple smaller file solution, or give the ability to resume the download from where it left off.
