Off Topic, Sierra installer


(Tom Murray) #1

Does anyone know where to download a 10.12 installer (not High Sierra ) to update a 10.11 Mac?
It is not in “Purchased” as I never installed it.

Thanks.

Might try this (10.12.6):

That is the .6 update. That and the 10.12 combo download require 10.12 already installed.

Try this link:

Thanks but the package doesn’t open. I read that long thread and another and someone was going to try to make the installer available for download. So I will watch that thread.

Seems like a issue for others, could try the hackintosh way

Is Hackintosh to be trusted? How to make sure that their OS installers are not modified in any way?

My impression from their deliberately confusing website is that the installers are intended for installing Mac OS on windows machines.

I know some people use them to build their own Mac’s, not just windows. @dan, or @BrandonCorlett, would be better to answer, Dan did a RapidWeaver show, don’t know if this is what they used:

Thank you for the suggestions. I person from the macrumors thread linked above made the Sierra installer available to me.

Glad you got it, don’t know why Apple no longer makes them easy to get.
