4) To make this guide a little easier, name the finished USB drive USB.

5) Now open up a Terminal session and paste in the following command:

sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave\ Beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --nointeraction --downloadassets

This will use the Mojave Beta application to create an installer on your chosen drive.

  • If you would like to be asked for confirmation before erasing the drive, remove “–nointeraction” from the above command.
  • The “–downloadassets” flag is new in macOS Mojave. It downloads assets which may be required during installation. This is presumably helpful for faster or offline installations, as it won’t require downloading during installation. However, the above command will still function without this flag if you prefer.
  • Previous versions of macOS used an “–applicationpath” flag in this command. That flag is now deprecated and will throw an error if used. For this reason, use the above command instead of updating the command quoted in guides written for older versions of macOS.

Create installer on chosen drive

NB: If you renamed the “Install macOS Mojave Beta.app” or your USB drive to something other than what I advised above, you must edit the command to match your chosen names. Similarly, if you moved the installer out of the /Applications folder, you must change the above command to show its new filepath.

6) Enter your administrator password when prompted.

Enter admin password

When the files are transferred and the drive has been blessed it will be remounted on the desktop, as shown above, and Terminal will read out as complete.

2) Start up the computer whilst holding the Option (⌥) key.

3) Select the drive called “Install macOS Mojave Beta” from the Startup Manager using the keyboard arrow keys. The computer will now boot from the selected drive.

4) You can now deploy Mojave as necessary. Using this external USB installer lets you reformat and/or repartition the startup drive and other storage devices. You can also access built-in tools such as Terminal, Startup Disk, and Firmware Password Utility from the menus.
