  • Making The Bootable El Capitan USB Drive. We’re all here for one thing, so lets dive right in at the deep-end and get started with the process. We first of all need the OS X El Capitan installer that we alluded to as part of the “Pre-Requisites” above. Launch the Mac App Store and search for El Capitan.

Make Bootable Usb Mac Os X El Capitan As explained here, OS X 10.11 'El Capitan' fails to install because it is too old (the technical reason being that the signing certificate is no longer valid). But you can trick the OS X installer into thinking that it is 2017 and it will happily run without any errors. As usual, Apple no longer supply a bootable USB Flash Drive with latest OS X releases - including the new OS X 10.11 El Capitan. Using this tutorial you will.

Created a bootable USB with El Capitan installer

booted from it, erased my MBP (mid 2009), clean install from USB installer

decided to use migration assistant, most apps not working plus all the clutter from pre clean install

decided to do another clean install but MBP won't boot from USB and uses the recovery version instead.

tried to get Maverick back and basically ended up with a non-working MBP that went into a boot loop

did a reinstall from MAS, ended up DLing the entire Installer again, went to bed and in the morning and 'working'

MBP again, plus all the clutter and non working apps.

Made a new bootable USB key using terminal and yes it finished and yes it said bootable at the end as well as in Disk Utilities.

However when trying to boot from USB, start+Option, or start+cmd+r still no sign of the USB stick, which i guess would leave me

with a non clean install again.


Any help, suggestions.....?
