Step 1. Backup Drive and Data

So the first thing is you need to backup your system if you are installing on the internal drive. If you have dual storage, don’t touch Windows OS drive, but you must back up the secondary storage as we will be formatting the hard drive for MacOS installation. Which means any data on the drive will be permanently lost. So be careful.

Step 2. Prepare Files and Setup PC/Laptop for MacOS Sierra 10.12.6 Installation

Now let’s go ahead and create MacOS Installation drive. And for that you need at least 8GB USB thumb drive, However, 16GB is recommended.

  • Download the MacOS.dmg which is around 4GB and TransMac app.
  • Once you have downloaded both files, Connect USB Thumb drive to your PC, then run Transmac application as Administrator, and then right click on the USB Thumb Drive and click Format for MacOS.
  • Next, Right click again and this time select Restore from Disc Image. Now browse the MacOS.dmg file you downloaded and select it. Click OK to proceed. Now, this can take a while depending on your system speed.
  • Once it’s finished, you can go to File Explorer and then open the Thumb drive partition. Inside the partition, you will see a few files and folders. Just delete everything. Don’t format drive.
  • Next, download the compressed EFI folder from the link given in the description and then extract the EFI folder to the USB Thumb drive.
  • Now that you have the EFI folder inside the Thumb drive, you can restart your system. Now Enter the BIOS by pressing F2 quickly as the system reboots. Then First, Deactivate Secure Boot.
