Install Windows 10 On Mac El Capitan

These advanced steps are primarily for system administrators and others who are familiar with the command line. You don't need a bootable installer to upgrade macOS or reinstall macOS, but it can be useful when you want to install on multiple computers without downloading the installer each time.

I was trying to install Windows 10 besides my Mac OS X El Capitan. I followed the normal steps I found on the Internet, but when I started to apply I got this and no idea what I should do in order to install Windows. Then, you clicked on the folder now in here, select the image file of Mac OS X El Capitan and click on the “Open” button. Select Mac OS X El Capitan ISO file. Within this step, you’re finished with the settings. Now is the time to make a digital machine to Mac OS X El Capitan. Consequently, you have to press on Create.

What you need to create a bootable installer

  • A USB flash drive or other secondary volume formatted as Mac OS Extended, with at least 14GB of available storage
  • A downloaded installer for macOS Big Sur, Catalina, Mojave, High Sierra, or El Capitan

Download macOS

  • Download: macOS Big Sur, macOS Catalina, macOS Mojave, or macOS High Sierra
    These download to your Applications folder as an app named Install macOS [version name]. If the installer opens after downloading, quit it without continuing installation. To get the correct installer, download from a Mac that is using macOS Sierra 10.12.5 or later, or El Capitan 10.11.6. Enterprise administrators, please download from Apple, not a locally hosted software-update server.
  • Download: OS X El Capitan
    This downloads as a disk image named InstallMacOSX.dmg. On a Mac that is compatible with El Capitan, open the disk image and run the installer within, named InstallMacOSX.pkg. It installs an app named Install OS X El Capitan into your Applications folder. You will create the bootable installer from this app, not from the disk image or .pkg installer.

Use the 'createinstallmedia' command in Terminal

  1. Connect the USB flash drive or other volume that you're using for the bootable installer.
  2. Open Terminal, which is in the Utilities folder of your Applications folder.
  3. Type or paste one of the following commands in Terminal. These assume that the installer is in your Applications folder, and MyVolume is the name of the USB flash drive or other volume you're using. If it has a different name, replace MyVolume in these commands with the name of your volume.

Big Sur:*

Catalina:*

Mojave:*

High Sierra:*

El Capitan:

* If your Mac is using macOS Sierra or earlier, include the --applicationpath argument and installer path, similar to the way this is done in the command for El Capitan.


After typing the command:

  1. Press Return to enter the command.
  2. When prompted, type your administrator password and press Return again. Terminal doesn't show any characters as you type your password.
  3. When prompted, type Y to confirm that you want to erase the volume, then press Return. Terminal shows the progress as the volume is erased.
  4. After the volume is erased, you may see an alert that Terminal would like to access files on a removable volume. Click OK to allow the copy to proceed.
  5. When Terminal says that it's done, the volume will have the same name as the installer you downloaded, such as Install macOS Big Sur. You can now quit Terminal and eject the volume.

Use the bootable installer

Determine whether you're using a Mac with Apple silicon, then follow the appropriate steps:

Install

Apple silicon

  1. Plug the bootable installer into a Mac that is connected to the internet and compatible with the version of macOS you're installing.
  2. Turn on your Mac and continue to hold the power button until you see the startup options window, which shows your bootable volumes.
  3. Select the volume containing the bootable installer, then click Continue.
  4. When the macOS installer opens, follow the onscreen instructions.

Intel processor

  1. Plug the bootable installer into a Mac that is connected to the internet and compatible with the version of macOS you're installing.
  2. Press and hold the Option (Alt) ⌥ key immediately after turning on or restarting your Mac.
  3. Release the Option key when you see a dark screen showing your bootable volumes.
  4. Select the volume containing the bootable installer. Then click the up arrow or press Return.
    If you can't start up from the bootable installer, make sure that the External Boot setting in Startup Security Utility is set to allow booting from external media.
  5. Choose your language, if prompted.
  6. Select Install macOS (or Install OS X) from the Utilities window, then click Continue and follow the onscreen instructions.

A bootable installer doesn't download macOS from the internet, but it does require an internet connection to get firmware and other information specific to the Mac model.

For information about the createinstallmedia command and the arguments you can use with it, make sure that the macOS installer is in your Applications folder, then enter the appropriate path in Terminal:

I WANT TO INSTALL AND RUN THE LATEST MACINTOSH OPERATING SYSTEM MAC OS X 10.11 EL CAPITAN VIRTUALLY INSIDE MY WINDOWS PC—————I DON’T KNOW HOW TO DO THIS.WHAT SOFTWARES I WILL NEED, WHAT STEPS TO FOLLOW AND WHAT TO CONFIGURE……………I AM CONFUSED!!!”

IF THAT SO THEN THIS IS THE RIGHT PLACE AND PACKAGE YOU WILL EVER NEED TO INSTALL VORTUALLY THE LATEST MAC OS X.

A DETAILED STEP BY STEP GUIDE IS THERE ALONGWITH VIDEO FILE.

WE HAVE ALSO INCLUDED FEW BEST MAC OS X – EL CAPITAN APPLICATIONS AND BOOKS IN HIGH QUALITY PDF FORMAT FOR FURTHER CULTIVATION.

WELCOME…………..

Pre-Requisite:

Windows OS:10/8.1/8/7 [Only and ONLY 64 Bit OS is supported]

RAM: 4 GB+ [Please do not try installing MAC OS X if you have less than 4 GB RAM. The Virtual OS will simply crawl.

CPU: Intel Pentium Dual Core/i3/i5/i7/Celeron [AMD ATHLON PROCESSOR IS NOT SUPPORTED NORMALLY, THERE ARE WAYS, HOWEVER THOSE ARE ONLY FOR GEEKS]

Free Hard Disk: 40 GB for MAC OS X and another 2 GB for needful software. YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE 40 GB IN C:/ DRIVE.

Note:

1. Actually later you will understand that the location you will choose for the virtual machines virtual RAM will need maximum 8 GB space. [THOUGH THIS DEPENDS UPON HOW MUCH RAM YOU ALLOCATE FOR MAC OS X – HERE I ASSUME YOU WILL MAX ALLOCATE 4 GB RAM TO MAC OS X]

2. Also the OS X 10.11 El Capitan Retail (VMWare virtual disk file with .vmdk extension) file size is 9.64 GB. THIS IS YOUR MAC OS X HARD DISK. WITH TIME WHEN YOU WILL UPDATE YOUR MAC OS X FROM VERSION 10.11 TO 10.11.5 (Latest as of June 2016) THIS FILE SIZE WILL INCREASE.ALSO WITH TIME IF YOU PLAN TO INSTALL MAC SOFTWARES THIS WILL GET LARGER AND LARGER UP TO 83 GB (MAXIMUM LIMIT).

So in brief:

MAC OS Hard Disk without update to 10.11.5 & 4 GB virtual MAC RAM=25 GB will do.

MAC OS Hard Disk with update to 10.11.5 & 4 GB virtual MAC RAM=30 GB will do.

MAC OS Hard Disk with update to 10.11.5 & 4 GB virtual MAC RAM + Software > 40 GB needed.

HOWEVER, THE MAC HARD DISKS LIMITATION IS 80 GB.

IF YOU ARE NEWBIE TO MAC OS X THEN IT IS SAFER FOR YOU TO CHOOSE ONE OF YOUR WINDOWS PARTITION WHERE YOU CAN CREATE FOLDER/S OF ATLEAST 40 GB SIZE.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CHOOSEN WINDOWS PARTITION WILL NOT BE DELETED OR FORMATED.

NOTE THAT WE HAVE INCLUDED BOTH VMWARE WORKSATION 12 PRO & VMWARE WORKSTATION 12 PLAYER – THE NON-COMMERCIAL FREE VERSION OF VMWARE WORKSTATION PRO.

THOUGH THE PRO VERSION IS MUCH MORE POWERFUL THAN THE PLAYER VERSION, IF YOUR OBJECTIVE IS ONLY TO VIRTUALIZE THE MAC OS X OPERATING SYSTEM – IT IS RECOMMENDED TO USE VMWARE WORKSTATION 12 PLAYER WHICH CONSUMES LESS SYSTEM MEMORY BUT YIELDS THE SAME RESULT FOR VIRTUALIZING MAC OS X – EL CAPITAN.

VMWARE WORKSTATION 12 PRO IS REALLY A RAM CONSUMING SOFTWARE. UNLESS YOU HAVE PLENTY OF RAM FOR YOUR WINDOWS AND VIRTUAL MAC OS X IT IS RECOMMENDED TO GO FOR VMWARE WORKSTATION 12 PLAYER.

THE CONFIGURATION IS SAME FOR BOTH THE PRO AND FREE VERSION.

Step One:

Start or Restart your Computer.

Now go to UEFI or Bios setup.

Find for ‘INTEL VIRTUALIZATION TECHNOLOGY’ and Enable the option.

Save and restart computer.

DO NOT WORK WITH THE DOWNLOADED COPY OF OS X 10.11 El Capitan Retail 9.64 GB FILE. TAKE A COPY OF THIS 9.64 GB FILE AND PUT IT to the DESIRED LOCATION YOU WANT, SAY D:/ DRIVE, E:/ DRIVE etc. THE OS INSTALLATION WILL MODIFY THIS ORIGINAL FILE, SO WORK WITH A COPY. ALSO WHERE YOU PUT THIS COPY MUST HAVE AT LEAST 25 GB SPACE.
