    For me I like to use How to Make a Bootable MacOS Mojave Installer Drive . Doesn't take any other software and it's a one step process.

    While we're on this subject, I had Majove .5 and wanted to make an installer for the .6 version so downloaded that, but what I got was only a few hundred MB. Apparently it would download the real thing when it ran. Has anyone else seen that?

    Yes. In fact several forum members had a thread going about that some time ago (relatively recently). I'll try to dig up the link to that thread because I think it had a fix for this problem.

    As for using the terminal command line mentioned by Csmac in post #31 yes it is perfectly acceptable to go that way but I resist advising it because using sudo commands require some familiarity with the process and a mistake can be disastrous.

    sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/UNTITLED --nointeraction && say Mojave Drive Created

    This script must be copied and pasted exactly and the process followed to the letter leaving more room for error than I am comfortable with.
    Disk maker X is a free app which removes most if not all of the risks and stresses the need to use the correct version for your macOS clearly on the download page. Note: The above sudo command is also version specific. In this case it is a script for Mojave only.
    I used to be conceited but now I'm perfect.

    Rod,

    Yes, one can do nasty things in the terminal, but hopefully someone who isn't confident in being able to use the terminal and sudo will not go there. I just wanted to put the information out there for those who wanted to use it. Here is a link to Apple Support where they describe the command for each of the OS versions back to El Capitan.

    @Csmac, the real caution is that when people post terminal commands like that, all too often someone who isn't confident will copy/paste it anyway, assuming that it must be ok to run. But if you put the installer anywhere else, or renamed it to anything else, or named the USB drive anything else, it doesn't work. In most cases, the error will confound the user who knows little and maybe they will stop, but you never know.

    If you don't know exactly what you are doing, Terminal can be dangerous.

    That's a handy article, I'll add it to my library of Tips & Tricks. Thanks
