This is the identical installer you would find in the App Store for Intel or Apple Silicon M1 Mac Computers. The InstallAssistant.pkg file is hosted on Apple’s servers. It contains the complete “Install” installation. After downloading the pkg, you can install it. The macOS’ full installer will be available in your Applications folder. This was done when Apple updated the Big Sur full installer. InstallAssistant.pkg cannot be used for Catalina and Mojave.

    • Ugh I know. Everybody hates Mega because of the paywall. It doesn’t matter what kind of internet connection you have. Mega will let you download the first ISO. But ~600mb into the 2nd one they force you to either pay money or wait 5+ hours to finish the download. If they will let you download one per day then it won’t be TOO bad but I’m guessing they might increase the wait time after you download the 2nd one.
