How to write a USB stick with macOS. Creating a bootable USB stick is very simple, especially if you're going to use the USB stick with a generic Windows or . Mac OS comes with a great bootable USB/DVD from ISO.
I have a distant past in sysadmin so I tend to exclude errors and I tried a few times. Consistently the usb is not bootable on the Dell Inspiron 14 but the crazy part if that if I follow this howto and unetbootin I almost get it to work: Name required.
