Can't find it in purchases or in updates, so I can't install. Am I missing something obvious?
If you plan to reuse the installer, set aside a copy.
Thanks, weird it also installed the beta.
If you have not already trashed installers for the beta, please do so.
@m4v3r1ck check the subject line, the opening poster has already downloaded it (should not need an iTunes link).
This is beneficial so you don't have to download it if you want to erase your computer and then install directly from the flash drive or something right? in the even you don't have internet access?
@WinterWolf90 I guess that most people who set aside a copy do so to avoid multiple downloads of the same installer.
Oops, my bad!
To use on several computers?
what is the correct command using terminal to make a usb stick so one could do a clean install?
There is a thread for that here: http://forums.macrumors.com/threads...ler-for-sierra-gm-and-public-release.1992501/
Create a bootable installer for OS X - Apple Support
That still hasn't been updated to include Sierra. Should be soon though.
@tywebb13 thanks I should have remembered that after the other post a few weeks ago. Sorry!
This article will help you out.
Go to the front page of the Store - the 'Featured" section. Download it. It downloads to your "Applications" folder. If the upgrade installation routine started, and you want an upgrade, fine, carry through with it.
If you want to clean install, cancel out of the upgrade, as the downloaded image is removed as part of the upgrade process. Anyway, after you cancel out of the upgrade if it started, you can create a USB stick installer or similar to do a clean install. A weird sounding Euro guy tells you how to do it here:
In the description section of the video on the YouTube website, he provides the terminal commands you need to create the bootable USB disc.
One option to do a clean install is to download Sierra, perform an upgrade, which will also upgrade the recovery partition on your Mac to Sierra. Then restart your Mac with Command R to boot to the recovery partition, use disk utility to erase your boot drive and reinstall.
