Yeah from the app store it will download it and start the installer. At that point you just quit out of the installer and it will leave the  "install Mac Mojave" file. Then you run DiskMaker X and point it at the installer file. WARNING: It takes a long time and you will think it has died. Let it go until it completes. If for some reason it never completes you can actually do this yourself from Terminal without DiskMakerX. I would have to google the instructions if you need it.

Holy Cow! I did it!
I totally expected to have a problem and lug this thing to the apple store! :laugh:
One thing tho, my wireless mouse locked up in the middle of the process and had to plug in a mouse
a bit of a freakout, but I survived :laugh:

Thanks for all your help Joe!
The hardest part is getting all the printers and CWS installed
with the new OS you need new drivers etc...
went ok tho!
