    Hi, I'm currently doing the terminal step and so far it hasn't got passed "copying installer files to disk" and has been like this for over half an hour. Any idea what's happening?

  6. Philip Parker says:

    Brilliant, thanks man 🙂

  7. DRSproductions100 says:

    Is all this necessary if you do a time machine backup, which saves your operating system?

    Thank you for publishing this video. Your instructions were clear and I was able to make a Bootable OS X El Capitan. I appreciate your time.

    For El Capitan Use this command, replace UNTITLED with your partition name

    sudo /Applications/Install OS X El –volume /Volumes/UNTITLED –applicationpath /Applications/Install OS X El –nointeraction

    Thanks for the instruction. I have multiple logon id's on my MBP. Do the instructions change to handle multiple id's?

  11. Luigi Pardo says:

  12. oh hi o says:

  13. s1e2i3f says:

    its been over an hour and terminal is stuck at "copying installer files to disk…" anyone?

  14. Nickolas Tomasgaard says:

    Hey Sakitech, thanks for a very good vid! I have a question: I'm installing OS X Yosemite, and using the command Donald here posted. When trying to enter my password in the Terminal I can't get no reaction from the Terminal. It will not let me type my password. Just freezes

    What to do?

  15. tom kruz says:

    Question?  I checked my iTunes account on my Mac, and  I could not find OS X Yosemite.  

    While I do have the up to date version of OS X on my Mac, it was always downloaded automatically, never manually.  

    Based on the above, how do I download this to a USB thumb drive for later use, if its not listed in my iTunes?

  19. Nick Kientsch says:

    Thankyou. Looked at three other videos but yours was the easiest to follow and worked! One thing confused me and might be worth pointing out. When typing in the password nothing happens on the screen, so for a while I thought it was frozen.  Then I hit return in desperation and realised it had recorded the password without showing any activity on the screen as it then went on to do what you described.
