I’ve just lately obtained a 2009 MBP to make use of with an previous video digital camera. The MBP has no HDD so I formatted an previous home windows drive to exFAT and have been making an attempt to create a bootable USB for OSX set up, holding down the choice key on boot however the bootable USB doesn’t apprear.
I’ve tried to observe this put up however i get caught on the very starting:
How can I take advantage of Home windows to create an OS X El Capitan USB flash drive installer from the disk picture (.dmg) file downloaded from Apple?
My InstallMacOSX.dmg (El Capitan file instantly from Apple’s web site for OS’s) file doesn’t have this Set up ESD file within the DMG when utilizing 7Zip, I’ve tried Mountain Lion, Lion and El Capitan and neither have this file. Possibly because of this it won’t seem.
I begin my machine up utilizing the choice key and the USB bootable doesn’t seem, solely the brand new empty HDD.
This appears to be a standard subject with different individuals who personal previous MBP of this period, with no authentic HDD and solely a Home windows machine.
