    create install media for MacBook Air mid 2011
    hi guys I have the above MacBook Air

    but when I try to load Sierra on to it through internet recovery it just downloads OSX Lion.

    do I need to do an inplace upgrade after its done ?


    also I have the installer for high Sierra on my home server how do I make a bootable USB installer for that ?

    thanks

    The recovery console for a particular version of macOS will only re-install that version of OS again, it will not upgrade.

    If you wish to upgrade, you need to do so by downloading the installer for the newer version of macOS from the App Store and running it. The recovery console will also be updated.

    If you already have the installer of High Sierra, then us Diskmaker X to create a bootable USB drive with it and use it with your MBA.
