    I'm currently in the process of doing USB boot drive setup for my first CustoMac, and I had a question regarding the El Capitan versions. I've seen a number of guides that mention downloading version 10.11.4+ specifically, however the App Store page for El Capitan doesn't seem to include any information on which version is being downloaded. Would it be okay to download the combo update for 10.11.6 directly from the Apple support forums (here)?

    I've followed all the steps, and get through step 4. However, once I get to the Clover boot screen and choose to boot Mac OSX from USB, the screen goes blank. It has been blank for at least 20 minutes now. Is this normal, or should the installer have opened by now?

    No, that's the 10.11.6 Combo Update which updates 10.11.0-5. You'll need to download the complete installer. See https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT206886 and scroll down to "How to get El Capitan."

    Ah, gotcha.

    I guess my confusion came after reading the instructions for downloading the installer in ammulder's guide where he says to
    "Download OS X El Capitan (10.11.4 or higher)". Is it possible to download an 'all-in-one' installer for a specific version of El Capitan from the App Store, or does this imply that you are meant to update El Capitan to version 10.11.4+ after successfully installing a fresh copy of El Capitan on a CustoMac?

    The only version of El Capitan from the MAS (through the link I gave you above) is version 10.11.6 which is the most up to date version.
