Having decided to upgrade from 2009 Mini 2012 Mini, I thought it prudent to update from my favourite ever OS Snow Leopard, to something a bit newer, Mavericks at least.
Great idea, but as I have never bought an OS from the Apple Store, I find that I can't update!!!!!
It appears that I have to "BUY" a new "OLDER" system first, from the Apple Store, despite the fact that I bought Snow Leopard family pack on disk!!!
What a rip-off!!

Anyone know if there is a way around this b.s?
Cheers.
