Hi Ken,

I have Mountain Lion installed with two boot partitions.  I wonder if,
destroying one by Mavericks would also destroy the ability to boot from
the other partition.

No, it doesn't and this is what saved me in the end. On my Mac mini I had two hard disks, and Mavericks installed itself in the end on the second one, overwriting the backup I had on it without telling me in advance (nice). After several reboots, I can now actually use a cordless mouse and my keyboard has been recognized again (why, I don't know). I can now even read the data on my old OSX installation drive, but not write to it. I see that the Mavericks installation created a folder there with disk images and other data in it, which I shall remove after saving it to external storage. At least I can now copy the contents of my old Applications folder to the new installation Applications folder.

I have to say, this has been the worst OSX upgrade I've ever had the misfortune to suffer. Had I only had one disk, I would've been well and truly stuffed.
