    I downloaded Sierra on my computer hard drive, in my apartment, from the internet,
    by navigating to the update teaser in the god damn App Store.

    Correct me if I'm wrong: Since it's not possible to purchase El Capitan on the App Store, and the App Store won't let me download the latest version of Sierra to a 2010 MacBook, I'm going to have to use somebody else's computer to make the installer.

    Thanks. I'm trying that instead (it's midnight here, no other Macs around).

    I was able to create an El Capitan install drive with UniBeast 6.2.

    Encouraged by that, I retried making a Sierra install drive, and that succeeded as well (apparently it can take up to half an hour on an old MacBook).

    Now I'm having trouble convincing the PC that it's a bootable stick, which I think might be due to only having USB 3.0/3.1 ports.

    Marking thread as solved, thanks.
