    Hello!
    I am helping a retired person (84 years old) with his MacBook Pro. Today he wants me to upgrade from Yosemite to El Capitan. I want to already download the upgrade on my Macbook before going to his house as he has a very slow internet connection. How can I download the El Capitan upgrade to move it with a USB Stick and install it on different machines?

    Thanks.

    That process you linked will still work for El Capitan. You can just copy the installer to a USB key, then drag it over to his /Applications folder and launch it to do the upgrade.
