    Download the macOS installer from the App Store.

    * Use the 'createinstallmedia' command in Terminal.
    1. After downloading the installer, open the Terminal app, which is in the Utilities folder of your Applications folder.
    2. Use the createinstallmedia command in Terminal to create the bootable installer. This is the basic syntax of the command:
    Syntax for High Sierra:
    createinstallmedia --volume volumepath

    Syntax for Sierra and earlier:

    createinstallmedia --volume volumepath --applicationpath installerpath
    (Replace volumepath with the path to your USB flash drive or other volume. Replace installerpath with the path to the installer. )

    The following examples assume that the installer is in your Applications folder, and the name of your USB flash drive or other volume is MyVolume: ( VD: Hãy chắc chẵn rằng file cài đặt macOS nằm trong Applications và USB có tên là MyVolume )

    Example for High Sierra:
    sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/MyVolume
    Example for Sierra:
    sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/MyVolume --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app
    Example for El Capitan:
    sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/MyVolume --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app
    Example for Yosemite:
    sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/MyVolume --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app
    Example for Mavericks:
    sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Mavericks.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/MyVolume --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Mavericks.app

    For more information about the createinstallmedia command, make sure that the macOS installer is in your Applications folder, then enter the appropriate path in Terminal:

    /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia
    Path for Sierra:
    /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia
    Path for El Capitan:
    /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia
    Path for Yosemite:
    /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia
    Path for Mavericks:
    /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Mavericks.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia
