    I just download from the Apple Store but I dont know how to checksum the Installer

    With Mavericks I open terminal and type

    Code:
    MD5 /Applications/Install \ OS\ X\ Mavericks.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg
    How to checksum OS X El Capitan?

    Thanks

    Try this.

    Code:
    md5 /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg
    Although you don't really need to worry about this. The installer verifies itself before it runs.

    Sorry for the late response. Just type 'openssl sha1' and drag the file from its location into terminal. This will automatically add the file path in terminal, then press Enter.

    Don't forget the space after "sha1" ;-)
