    Can someone explain to me step by step on how to create a bootable USB stick where I can use to install/update to El Capitan?

    What am I suppose to do with the .dmg file?

    I have no idea how i fiq. it out it was so hard... not even funny well for me it was the first time. I used this video to guide me

    the terminal command to see the hidden files

    defaults write AppleShowAllFiles 1 && killall Finder

    The hidden file are not in the same place like in the video he show some are and some are not.

    Use DiskMaker X and point it to the installer app from the DMG.
