    Re: el capitan

    Here are alternative instructions for making a bootable dvd. It has an advantage over previous instructions in that the resultant iso file can also be used to install into a vmware fusion virtual machine too.

    Download the el capitan full installer from the mac app store.

    Make a bootable iso file first by copying and pasting each of these commands into terminal followed by the return key for each command. Some may take longer than others to complete so just wait till it returns to a prompt before entering the next command.

    hdiutil attach /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg -noverify -nobrowse -mountpoint /Volumes/install_app

    hdiutil create -o /tmp/ElCapitan.cdr -size 8g -layout SPUD -fs HFS+J

    hdiutil attach /tmp/ElCapitan.cdr.dmg -noverify -nobrowse -mountpoint /Volumes/install_build

    asr restore -source /Volumes/install_app/BaseSystem.dmg -target /Volumes/install_build -noprompt -noverify -erase

    rm /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation/Packages

    cp -rp /Volumes/install_app/Packages /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation/

    cp -rp /Volumes/install_app/BaseSystem.chunklist /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/BaseSystem.chunklist

    cp -rp /Volumes/install_app/BaseSystem.dmg /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/BaseSystem.dmg

    hdiutil detach /Volumes/install_app

    hdiutil detach /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/

    hdiutil convert /tmp/ElCapitan.cdr.dmg -format UDTO -o /tmp/ElCapitan.iso

    mv /tmp/ElCapitan.iso.cdr ~/Desktop/ElCapitan.iso

    You can then use this to burn it to a dual layer dvd:

    sudo drutil burn /Users/YOURNAME/Desktop/El\ Capitan.iso

    where you replace "YOURNAME" with the username for the account you are logged into at the time.

    and then boot to startup manager with option key to select the dvd

    Re: el capitan

    It's up to 10.11.6 now.

    Here is the combo: https://support.apple.com/kb/dl1885?locale=en_US

    That will give you build 15G31.

    But then there is also Security Update 2016-001 (10.11.6): https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1891?locale=en_US

    This increases the build number to 15G1004.

    Then Sierra was released but you can't upgrade directly from Snow Leopard to Sierra. You have to have some version higher than Snow Leopard. Furthermore, there are some machines that can support El Capitan but not Sierra. Usually apple remove old systems from the mac app store when a new one is released. However due to these 2 problems they did something unusual and re-released El Capitan on the same day they released Sierra and this re-release of El Capitan is now available at https://itunes.apple.com/app/os-x-el...47835434?mt=12 . This link will open the page in the mac app store for El Capitan version 10.11.6. This time it gives build number 15G1010.

    However it is rather difficult to download 15G1010. They are restricting it to those with snow leopard or machines that support El Capitan but not Sierra.

    If you don't fall into those categories you can however fool the mac app store and download it on many other machines if you get it by running the mac app store on a snow leopard server virtual machine.
