- But I can't do: STEP 1: Download OS X El Capitan & STEP 2: Create a Bootable USB Drive with UniBeast, Because I don't have another MAC pc/laptop. What can I do for installing mac os in my intel based laptop? Can I make a bootable USB for OS-X from a windows Computer? How it can be possible? Please help anyone.
- Make sure the El Capitan installer (or at least a copy of it), called Install OS X El Capitan.app, is in its default location in your main Applications folder (/Applications). Select the text of.
- Carbon Copy cloner is your best option. Just create a bootable backup with it; and boot to the USB stick by holding ALT key when starting up.
- If you have a spare USB flash drive laying around, you should consider putting it to good use by creating a bootable installation drive for the OS X El Capitan Beta. Creating a bootable drive has many benefits and uses. For starters, it makes it easy to install a fresh copy of whatever operating system you have configured on the drive.
The El Capitan DMG installer file, now available for download under the version of 10.11.6 for Mac OSX. Now the dmg file can be downloaded by any Mac device users. The Dmg file is known as the latest ISO regarding El Capitan operating system. When talking about the El Capitan OS X, this is the advanced OS, which has been released for the Mac.
Here are the instructions.
Go to Section 4 and click on Download OS X El Capitan.
This downloads InstallMacOSX.dmg to your Downloads folder.
The next section can only be done on a mac that is capable of running El Capitan,
a mac that came preinstalled with an OS later than El Capitan will refuse to do the next bit.
When downloaded open to InstallMacOSX.pkg, double-click on
that and an installation window will open, this does not install El Capitan
but converts the InstallMacOSX.pkg to the Install OS X El Capitan.app which
you will find in your Applications folder, it should be 6.2GBs in size.
(If the installation window asks which disk you want to install to, you must pick
the disk that you are booted to at the time. Not any internal or external disk that
you want to eventually install El Capitan on, that is for later.)
To start the installation of El Capitan double click on the Install OS X El Capitan.app.
The copy of the install app self deletes after installing El Capitan, so make sure you keep a copy of the InstallMacOSX.dmg
if you need it in future, or you could just make a copy of the Install OS X El Capitan.app prior to installing and moving it to
an external drive for safe keeping. It is also possible to create a bootable USB installer disk using the Install OS X El Capitan.app
in the Applications folder and the createinstallmedia command in the Terminal app.
