Learn how MacUpdate Desktop makes installing apps from MacUpdate.com one-click easy.
Next time, install DiskMaker X with 1-click

Learn how MacUpdate Desktop can install apps on MacUpdate with the simple click of the Install apps with MacUpdate Desktop icon. Plus, keep all your apps updated.

DiskMaker X (was Lion DiskMaker) helps you to build a bootable drive from the official OS X installer app (the one you download from the Mac App Store). It detects the OS X Install program with Spotlight then proposes to build a bootable install disk and make it look as nice as possible. It’s the easiest way to build an OS X Installer in a few clicks! Then you can use the Install drive to fully re-install the OS on a freshly formated drive, or install it on your many Macs without re-downloading the full installer.

What's New

Version 5.0.1:
  • Creating a boot disk failed when the user's home folder was not on startup disk. Fixed.
  • Added a bit more logging. You can check the logs in ~/Library/Logs/DiskMakerX.log.
  • Added Turkish translation.
  • Added German translation.


  • OS X 10.7 or later.
