How do I know if OS X Mavericks was installed successfully? In the App Store, will the button next to the OS X Mavericks app be shown as "Installed" after the completion of installation?

  • Do you mean the App Store status? Or... where?

Click the  in the top left of your screen and select "About This Mac". If it says "Version 10.9.x" then you have successfully upgraded to Mavericks!

The installer app should have removed itself, but if it didn't you can go ahead and delete it manually.

And in the App Store it should show you a "Download" button instead of a greyed out "Installed" button. This is so you can download it again to reinstall OS X or install on another Mac. The App Store is not the place to check what version of OS X is installed, only to download apps and new versions of OS X.

  • Besides that, what about the app store status?
