    To install Mavericks, you need one of these Macs:

    • iMac (Mid-2007 or later)
    • MacBook (13-inch Aluminum, Late 2008), (13-inch, Early 2009 or later)
    • MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid-2009 or later),

    I have a mid 2007 IMAC, with 2 GB Memory and 168 GM free storage.

    •Find out if your Mac can run Mavericks:

    (same text as previous posted above)

    •Backup your Mac:

    •Mac App Store - OS X Mavericks:

    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/os-x-mavericks/id675248567?mt=12

     

    There really isn't anything here to suggest why

    your computer configuration won't run OS X 10.9.

    Assuming you have an Apple ID and account.

     

    However when I look into the MacTracker database

    the two Mid-2007 iMac models listed say Vintage...

     

    The 20-inch and 24-inch have limits under Mavericks

    so that may be due to graphic specification; though

    some aspects of 10.9.2 require certain hardware.

     

    PS: is your's an iMac7.1?

     

    Good luck & happy computing!
