Hello,
I'm trying to downgrade from El Capitan to Yosemite. I've down a lot of research and have tried the code below to create a bootable disk but when I enter the code I get the message "/Volumes/Untitled is not a valid volume mount point." I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Is there an easier way to do this?

sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction

You need to substitute the "Untitled" in /Volumes/Untitled with the actual name of the disk you're trying to make the bootable installer.

The name of the disk is untitled. Do I need to give it an actual name?

I went back and checked it and everything pertaining to the name untitled matches. The disk is name "Untitled" as the same in the command line but I still got the error.

Great news, so I renamed it Yosemite and configured the command for it and it worked. Go figure... But it worked. Thank you all so much for the help!
