    What error in SnowLeopard?

    I don't know what you are installing now - but there is no separate installer that you need to install before you install the OS.

    You definitely downloaded the wrong installer.

    By chance google brought this up:

    The bootable drive has all the software - you can use it to install the full macOS on any number of Macs.

    When you go to the app store and check under "purchased" - do you see a list of applications you downloaded over time?
    There should be one called OS X El Capitan.

    There is really no need to go the terminal route.

    I used Disk Creator to make a bootable thumb drive - it's free and does everything for you.

    There is also DiskMaker X which some prefer, also...

    Patrick - I don't understand how that is going to help.

    MacBrad wants a clean install of macOS 10.11 on the external.
    With CCC all he can do is make a bootable clone of macOS 10.7.5
    He can then...

    Maybe I'm missing something, but I see no reason why you can't install ElCapitan directly on the external drive.

    Good Grief!!!

    When I was looking for the IC used for the MIDI to USB conversion, I just came across that same unit being sold in Germany.
    For Canadians it's $C 113.-
    For Germans, after taking...
  13. I don't want to go for the cheapest one either,...

    I don't want to go for the cheapest one either, but the price differential from a low of around $5.00 to over $100.- seems rather ridiculous.

    There can't be that many different chips for that MIDI...

    Yes, I saw that in the description, but I assumed it was a typo and should read 1in/1out

    The picture shows two DIN plugs and also 2 cables coming out of the "DIN" side of that module.

    Why do you think that?
    It shows two DIN plugs - would that not be one MIDI-in and one MIDI-out?

    I did a bit more research since I posted earlier.

    The really cheap MIDI to USB cables/converters seem to have a 50/50 success rate based on the reviews.

    In our office everyone was given desktops with a large monitor or two.
    So a spill would at most only need the keyboard to be replaced.

    I want to connect a Yamaha PSR-640 Keyboard to a Mac and use Garage Band.

    I obviously need a MIDI to USB cable, but when I do a search for that, a lot of different cables show up priced anywhere...
  20. Apple TV 3rd Generation for wireless remote display?

    I'm looking for an inexpensive way to connect a remote monitor wireless to a 2017 MacBook Air running ElCapitan.

    Seems an Apple TV is one way to do this.
    I can buy a used Apple TV 3rd gen for $40...

    I can't convince anyone in my family to keep coffee or tea away from their Mac keyboard either.
