macOS Multi Installer

This weekend’s mini project was creating a drive with a range of macOS installers, this one specifically covering OS X 10.11 El Capitan through to macOS 14 Sonoma. The drive is a 250GB SATA SSD I placed into a repurposed LaCie Rugged case with a USB-C connector.

Mostly, I was following the instructions on the relevant Apple knowledge base article, but macOS Sierra is missing from that. It appears there is an issue with the newest version of the macOS Sierra installer that they have not rectified, but thankfully this genius has us sorted!

End result: All imaged and working happily… Next up, I have an older Buffalo MiniStation case with the original Thunderbolt connector, and an even older LaCie Rugged case with FireWire 800, both of which will get an appropriate range of macOS versions on them as well… I’ll be covered back to Mac OS X v10.2 :)
