The OS X Mavericks released last month October 22, in Apple Special Event October 2013.
Now OS X is releasing in App Store only. So you can’t get install media such as DVD, USB Stick.
But I want install DVD.
・DVD is cheaper than USB Stick.
・Probably I think that I lose a USB stick. Because it is too small!
This is how to make Mavericks’s install DVD. If you want too, try it.
1. Make the install DVD
