Install Disk Creator overview

Install Disk Creator turns a USB stick or other media into a bootable macOS installer. This is useful for doing a clean install (which is recommendable to do every 6 months or so), or for keeping a reusable installer handy to use on other machines.

I deleted too much when I reset my mid 2012 MacBook Air. I tried many different methods to do a web reboot, but I always got the error message of "additional components" missing and a time to load of a negative 2 million hours. I tried to make a bootable thumb drive on my own, but the web instructions just don't cover the screens as they appeared to me. Finally found your site. I downloaded the application, followed a few short instructions and just let the thumb drive do the rest. It may have taken 90 minutes, but no problems. Thank you. I would like to send some money for your great work.

If 1.5 doesn't work, use 1.3 (ask the manufacturer -macdaddy.io-)
