How can I download a legit copy of the El Capitan installer on a Mac that shipped with High Sierra?
I have a newer Mac. I also have an older Mac.
I am trying to download a copy of the El Capitan installer from the App Store using my newer Mac, so that I can install it on the older Mac. Since the older Mac is in a location that has very poor Internet connectivity, downloading it directly onto the older Mac is not an option.
When I attempt to download the El Capitan installer from the App Store using my newer Mac, I receive the error: “This version of OS X 10.11 cannot be installed on this computer.”
Well, duh, Apple — I’m not wanting to install 10.11 on this computer, I’m just wanting to download it.” How can I do this?
