I was wondering the same thing you did. So when I ran the command "sudo softwareupdate -d --fetch-full-installer --full-installer-version 11.0.1" the same error showed up "update not found". so I ran this command "sudo softwareupdate -d --fetch-full-installer --list-full-installers". It came up with the list of updates that were ...

This is an answer to the question as asked, but I suspect further investigation will be necessary. Reinstalling the OS without removing existing detritus will quite likely return you to the exact same state. Reinstall from Recovery without erase will clean up the OS itself without affecting any other data/apps. If the OS itself was at issue, then it will fix ...

Simply click the WiFi logo (top right) and select Join Other Network. Then type in the SSID of your network, select your security, then type in your password and you’re good to go to reinstall OS.

I believe the VirtualBox documentation states the Mac must be Intel based. VMware Fusion also has a free Player, but does not yet run on M1, Apple Silicon, ARM Macs. Parallels has a Technical Preview which requires an ARM version of Windows 10.

In general self-installed UI applications should go to /Applications, unix-level binaries/applications to /usr/local (see Where should shell tools be installed? and I downloaded a shell executable and man pages from a source I trust. Where should I put them?). But can spare yourself a lot of hassle by using a package manager for this, mainly Homebrew or ...

First step I guess is to copy the link of brew.sh of their page into your terminal. Whatever you do until you get to your final result, ALWAYS have your setting - security panel open, because for any reason, your security settings will block all apps coming from elsewhere than App Store... you see, basically everything... :) Then you go to the ffmpeg.org ...

It turned out the hard drive cable was faulty. I found a couple of Q&A's on the net (like https://de.ifixit.com/Antworten/Ansehen/356610/Hard+Drive+SATA+cable+failing+related+to+the+battery+brackets) that highlighted the issue and so i decided to give a new cable a try. I ordered a new one, replaced it and now everything works without any issues.

It’s best to use the Mac App Store and System Preferences to download OS from Apple. They chunk it into hundreds of slices, and use accelerated download sources in the CDN that can include local content caching sharing services if you set them up. This means network errors don’t ruin the entire download and speed it greatly. https://support.apple.com/en-us/...

For macOS versions from High Sierra to Big Sur, I prefer gibMacOS script available here: https://github.com/corpnewt/gibMacOS. Extract the file, and execute the gibMacOS.command Terminal Shell Script to download macOS High Sierra/Mojave/Catalina/Big Sur latest versions from Apple, directly to your Mac. Check this video to see how it works for downloading new ...

Certainly, if you are selling or passing on a Mac to someone else, then you should wipe the disk and install the OS anew, ideally leaving it so that it boots to the "Welcome" setup assistant. This will remove all personal data. (Trying to recover deleted data on SSDs is much harder than on hard drives.) Cautious purchasers / recipients may wish to ...

In fact, there are very few ways that can be used to write DMG image file to a USB drive and have it to be bootable on a Windows computer. As far as i konw, some third party tools like Transmac, poweriso, etcher or sysgeeker's WonderISO.but none of them are free, I suggest you download the trail version and use it for 3 times without paying.

This is not so much a definitive answer as some speculation based on prior known behaviour. One thing to note is that the 'date/certificate issue' should now be fixed for all older installers & so shouldn't need any workaround in that respect. I haven't tried any of these older installers in a while, but in the past some were only valid if your computer ...

I found a quicker and easier way to do this, so I'll share it here. I found a website called https://bootableinstaller.com/, and it works like magic. If you run the script (Included with download), it converts the installer DMG into a bootable ISO. As for my original problem: It looks like I tried to flash the installer DMG without unpacking the .PKG file ...

It looks like it's fixed. But I don't know why and how (probably it was caused by TikTok itself and they resolved something with latest update). Will look into another application next.
