Movaje installer
 
Hi,
I'm trying to get the Mojave installer from the app store with out any success. In the search I type in the os name and no Mojave installer appears. I tried the link from Apple support and I have to provide an app to get it from the app store. I tried various apps but nothing happens. The installer I had had expired.
I want to install it on an external HD.

Thanks,
Sonny

Further on this. After installing Mojave I had to remove it and I tried to download Mojave again using Mojave 10.14.6 update or any other update for that matter, but this time it said as in the other attempts I have to install 10.14 version first. It seems that you have to be in Mojave to download the installer. No where could I find the 10.14 installer
Here is an interesting article by Macworld UK.
After downloading Mojave that one time it didn't even show up in purchases.

https://www.macworld.co.uk/news/mac-...macos-3684588/

So how do I get Mojave installer if I want to update my mbp running Sierra directly to Mojave.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Sonny

As a lot of MacOS gurus seem to have disappeared from these forums, I'd suggest joining on asking your question here:
https://www.mac-forums.com/forums/

You will probably also come across a few ex-Ehmac members there, and you may already find the answer published there, but like most of vBulletin lists, I never seem to have success using their "Search" function.

I cannot run Mohave but I find it hard to believe why so many seem to have so much trouble with it and other macOS install versions that only seems to suggest that Apple has really screwed up lately eIither downloading or getting the OS to install.

You could try downloading and using the combo update, but it may not work for unknown reasons, but you can try anyway:

Download macOS Mojave 10.14.6 Combo Update
https://support.apple.com/kb/DL2010?locale=en_CA

Good luck.

EDIT:

PS: Why did you have to uninstall Mohave after you had installed it???

Hi,
I tried suggestions from mac rumours and apple forums and nothing worked so far. I also tried a Mojave patch from DosDude1 no luck. I had tried several versions from apple support page including the one you suggested (downloading it again) they did not work.

I removed Mojave because I connected it to my time machine to install the photos my wife has all 11,694 and counting, I choose to only install apps thinking that TM would install the photos but that didn't work and a lot of apps I didn't want were installed. So, I removed Mojave thinking that I can re-download Mojave - no such luck (I should have kept a copy). I installed Catalina instead but didn't like it. All this is because I intend to eventually get a new Imac so it is basically to practice installing photos from iphoto plus the weather is cool and nothing interesting to do and it keeps my grey matter active.

If I find a solution I'll post what I did.

thanks,
Sonny

Maybe give Apple Canada Support a call for some help and guidance. Maybe they can Help get you out of their own MacOS Install/Upgrade mess. ???

I found an answer on mac rumours. I had to run apple support in SAFARI and not Firefox. I never thought it would be the browser because I did manage to download it once in Firefox.

I'm not actually sure I understand what your actual problem is/was.

"Apple support", in whatever form you used should work in Safari or Firefox or Google Chrome... all legit Browsers/

It appears that there is a problem with Firefox according to a mac rumours post. If you
go to the below web site with FF it will eventually lead to the app store and only Catalina is available for download. Searching for Mojave does not help.

https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201372

I remember once FF did not work with voip but Safari did until FF finally fixed it.
I guess once in a while a browser might not work in certain situations. Anyway it worked in Safari and this time I made a copy of the installer.

Hmmm...??? That's a bit odd, but I have no trouble accessing or seeing the choice to download either Mojave or two of the other macOS Versions using Firefox 67.0.3.

Quote:

Download macOS

Find the appropriate download link in the upgrade instructions for each macOS version:

macOS Catalina, macOS Mojave, or macOS High Sierra
Installers for each of these macOS versions download directly to your Applications folder as an app named Install macOS Catalina, Install macOS Mojave, or Install macOS High Sierra.
I'm running Mavericks Mac OS 10.9.5.

The "macOS Mojave" is a workimg link.

Quote:

Download macOS Mojave

For the strongest security and latest features, find out whether you can upgrade to macOS Catalina, the latest version of the Mac operating system.

If you still need macOS Mojave, use this App Store link: Get macOS Mojave.[link]

I'm running FF 77.0.1 so maybe that is the problem and os Sierra 10.12.6. Anyway it downloaded straight to the apps folder and launchpad. I'll try and install it tomorrow in place of Catalina.

I trust you have read-up on the details of downgrading from Catalina to Mohave and checking on the formatting details depending on whether you have a rotating spinner or solid-state hard drive.

It's not an easy Cakewalk like it was in the old Mac OS Version Days.

Don't forget to make sure you have a backup of your current data if you need any of it. Even the installer usually tells you to do so before you run the installer!!!

Thanks for the advice Patrick. Catalina is installed on a external hdd I'm using for practicing purposes only. There is no data on it so nothing to lose.
I intend to reformat the external HDD and then install Mojave. I have done this a few times already.

I hope your email and its attachments work a lot better when you finally get finished. :D

Thank you, thank you, thank you for solving what I've been struggling with. I need a Mojave installer and just couldn't get to it (my default is Firefox).

After reading this I used Safari and, voila, got the installer.

Thank you very much.

I cannot run Mohave but I find it hard to believe why so many seem to have so much trouble with it and other macOS install versions that only seems to suggest that Apple has really screwed up lately eIither downloading or getting the OS to install.

I tend to agree with you and welcome ehMac.ca forums.

I also cannot go past High Sierra, even if I wanted to, but I actually went back to using Mavericks 10.9.5 that still has a lot of features I use that Apple removed in later OS versions.

I do not need nor can use most of their "New and Improved Features"!!! :(
