There will be 2 effective ways to create a bootable iso file from a install macOS file.

METHOD 1: Use of command lines through Terminal - Recommended to use
Thank Github-thelamehacker for these command lines.

  • Open Terminal (/Applications/Utilities/), then Enter the following command lines in order (administrator password is required during the process).

hdiutil create -o /tmp/Mojave.cdr -size 6g -layout SPUD -fs HFS+J

hdiutil attach /tmp/Mojave.cdr.dmg -noverify -mountpoint /Volumes/install_build

sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ --volume /Volumes/install_build

mv /tmp/Mojave.cdr.dmg ~/Desktop/InstallSystem.dmg

hdiutil detach /Volumes/Install\ macOS\ Mojave

hdiutil convert ~/Desktop/InstallSystem.dmg -format UDTO -o ~/Desktop/Mojave.iso

mv ~/Desktop/Mojave.iso.cdr ~/Desktop/Mojave.iso

rm ~/Desktop/InstallSystem.dmg

  • After above steps, we get the MacOS Mojave.iso.cdr on the desktop.
  • Just change the name by removing the “.cdr”, you get MacOS Mojave.iso files, which can be used to create bootable USBs, DVDs, install VMs.
    This exact ISO File was uploaded and is shared through this topic.
