  • If you've got an old macOS install image, it will probably stop working today

    You know there is a very easy fix here!

    The installer looks at its certificates and the systems date. So as long as the systems date is older than the expiring cert the installer won't be the wiser!

    As an example I just installed Sierra on an old 2011 iMac. I altered the systems Date & Time setting to manual and then back dated it to Jan 2017. Restarted the system and then ran the OS installer USB thumb drive I've setup. Once done reset the Date and Time to automatic and its done!
    Workarounds (like yours) are good to know in a pinch. The fix is to download the images, with the new certificate, because setting back a system clock can have unintended consequences.


    Mike you said ‘ The fix is to download the images, with the new certificate,‘ sorry if I am being dense, but how do you do this now the installers are no longer available?
