Making a bootable usb for a white MacBook 2008. Nothing working.
This may be covered somewhere, but I wouldn't know how to search it.
I got a nice Macbook for a student. I did all the hardware rebuild, and it's chiming and looking for something to boot to. I have an erased 60gig ssd waiting for an OS.
Thats where I lost it. This unit shipped with OSX Lion. I searched, at least, 50 articles. They all say the same wrong thing. Download Lion OSX, open the dmg, and find supporting files, create boot media (or similar).
This folder does not exist on Lion 7.0 to Lion 7.04. It isn't there. Another group says restore to a USB from the dmg file, fails every time. Restore from image to USB. Fail.
Out of ideas, even tried OSX disk maker, fails. I am trying to make this from the latest OS, Monterey. All I get is failures. I even tried creating a dvd, fails.
What's the magic combination, please? I give up after 2 weeks of trying. Thanks.
