    I downloaded Sierra on my old MacBook (running El Capitan).

    I'm trying to create an install drive with UniBeast, and it doesn't recognize the downloaded Sierra installer at `/Users/me/Downloads/Install macOS Sierra.app`.

    What could be the issue? I checked the UniBeast app contents, but couldn't find any configuration files to edit. The app seems very orthodox in it's wizard approach, it didn't accept installing on an external HDD instead of a USB stick. If I should just do the thing manually, can someone point out an up to date guide?

    Thanks

    Update: I moved the file to `/Applications/Install macOS Sierra.app`, and got past that step.

    Don't know. On my computer hard drive, in my apartment, from the internet.

    I don't know how it ended up in the Downloads folder.
    Your questions (the question-mark delimited things) line up perfectly with my answers (the dot delimited stuff).

    This seems stuck at 20% (after automatically mounting `OS X Base System`).
    I'm going to purge `~/Library/Caches`, and try to download Sierra from the App Store again.

    That didn't work. I don't know where it's kept, but App Store still reported an existing Sierra installer.
    I made a new user for that purpose, and that worked. But I can't seem to download the latest Sierra (laptop too old) :)

    Undoubtedly, all systems involved are just a little too "smart". Keep that in mind when making software.

    Don't know. Perhaps they changed the supported hardware at 10.12.4
