Install OS X from Thumb Drive

Post by Stephen Hart » Sat Mar 19, 2016 4:21 pm

There are many sets of instructions for how to get an OS X installer on a Thumb Drive so you can install multiple times.

Here's an article that goes through that step by step, and also shows how to set up the drive for more than one OS X version.

Why would you want this? So you can download OS X once and install it on multiple Macs. Or reinstall without downloading again.
