How to create macOS bootable usb on Windows 10


Right now, I’m attempting to use a Windows 10 computer to make a USB stick that can boot macOS. I’ve looked everywhere, but I haven’t been able to find a simple tutorial or method that shows how to make a macOS bootable USB on Windows 10, especially for non-terminal users.

Now, I can install the latest macOS Sonoma on my MacBook. For someone like me who wanted to do this without having extensive terminal expertise, UltraDMG’s method was clear-cut and suitable. Strongly advised!

It can be a little challenging to create a macOS bootable USB from Windows 10/11, particularly if you’re not comfortable using command-line interfaces. However, I understand, and I’ll do my best to make things as simple as I can for you! Now let’s begin the steps:

1. Download macOS DMG file

Initially, you will require the macOS installer file, which is typically a.dmg file. Look up the name of the macOS version (for example, macOS Monterey dmg file) and save the dmg file to your computer.

2. Install SysGeeker Ultradmg

Files can be copied to and from Mac HFS+ and APFS formatted drives using the Windows program Ultradmg. It comes in especially useful when making a Windows-based bootable USB for macOS. It is available on their official website.

3. Connect a USB Drive to a PC

Insert your USB drive (a minimum of 16GB is advised). Verify that the file explorer is displaying the drive name. As soon as the USB is burned, all data will be lost, thus please backup.

4. Create a Bootable macOS USB from the.dmg File

On Windows 10, open the Ultradmg app and select the Burn option. Next, choose the USB name and press the macOS.dmg file. Click the burn button after that. The macOS installer will be written to the USB disk as a result. Considering how big the DMG file is, it can take some time, so maybe have a coffee!

5. Install macOS from Bootable USB

When finished, remove the USB drive from Windows carefully. Insert the USB into the Mac that you wish to install macOS on at this point. Holding down the Option key will turn on the Mac and display the boot menu. Select the USB disk from the list, and the macOS installer ought to boot up!
