I have a Mac OS X Yosemite downloaded file like this:

enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here

Like I see, it must have a Yosemite.app file in it, so why doesn't this have the file? This is truly from an Official Apple Website. It just has a .pkg file. Can anybody explain this to me? And, How to create a complete bootable Yosemite 10.10.5 DMG disk image for clean OS install?

    Is this an update? If so, you should know that you can not install any OS X version from an update. Also, as far as I know, you can not currently get Yosemite from the Apple store. May 4, 2016 at 4:39
  • it is from macupdate.com/app/mac/48498/os-x-yosemite.

    The file you downloaded is to small to be any complete version of Yosemite. Your file size is comparable to the file you can download from OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 Update. This file is named osxupd10.10.5.dmg and is 995 MB in size. It is an update from OS X 10.10.4 to OS X 10.10.5. May 4, 2016 at 5:01
  • Can you not go to the Apple Store and get El Capitan OS X 10.11? May 4, 2016 at 5:20

It's inside the .pkg file (notice how large it is?). You'll need to unpack it using something like AnyToISO.

  • @sukihinata What you just did wasn't very nice. He gave you a correct answer. The .app file is inside the .pkg file. Just extract it.
