I have installed the macOS Mojave public beta and want to grab a copy of the newest beta version for a backup usb drive. I used the Mac App Store link from Apple's public beta page which opens the Mojave page in the new App Store. The download however only opens a small downloader program which directly installs the os rather than downloading the os image. Is there a way to force the App Store to download the full 4.9 GB file?

I'm not getting this to work:
To use this tool, you must download the macOS installer application on a Mac with 10.12.5 or later, or El Capitan 10.11.6. For more information, please see the following: https://support.apple.com/kb/HT201372.
[doublepost=1531197152][/doublepost]I might have an answer if you have the problem that I did above. I went back to the public beta page, and installed the Public Beta Access Utility which seems to be forcing a download (5.67 GB) in Software Update.

you could go to to the macOS Mojave for unsupported Macs and down load the macOS Mojave patcher tool on the first page of the thread once you install it open it up and under the tools tab download macOS Mojave you can also create a bootable usb drive with the tool to

Download a copy of macOS Mojave Patcher. Run it and under the Tools menu you can download the latest release of Mojave.
