Step Two – Apply Commands on Terminal
When the High Sierra finished, it will pop up in the apps list.
Now open up Terminal from the Spotlight.
Now copy and paste the commands by line.
- Create a High Sierra DMG Image
hdiutil create -o /tmp/Highsierra -size 7900m -volname highsierra -layout SPUD -fs HFS+J
- Mount DMG image to macOS
hdiutil attach /tmp/Highsierra.dmg -noverify -mountpoint /Volumes/Highsierra
- Use the Createinstallmedia Tool to create a macOS High Sierra Installer
sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Highsierra
- Unmount Disk image
hdiutil detach /volumes/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra
- Convert DMG File to ISO file
hdiutil convert /tmp/Highsierra.dmg -format UDTO -o ~/Desktop/Highsierra
