Hi guys and welcome to 123myIT. In this video, we will show you how fix the error this copy of the Install Mac OS application is damaged and it will also fix the error OS X could not be installed on your computer.
Upgrading your Mac – Install MacOS Application is Damaged
Guys if you are upgrading Mac OS or trying to do a clean install from USB you might encounter the error messages I just mentioned and the fix is easy. Open up a web browser and go to Google and do a search for the release data of the Mac OS you are trying to install. In my case its macOS High Sierra.
As you can see hear the release date for High Sierra was September 25 2017. So to get the macOS installer to work you will need to change the time on your computers clock.
Open up the Date & Time on your Mac and unlock it with your Admin password. Once you have unlocked it take the tick out of Set date and time automatically. Set your time back to just after the release date of the version of MacOS you are trying to install. So for me iam going to set my data to October 2017. This tricks the installer file to thinking the date is 2017 and will install MacOS on your computer. Watch and see what happens now when I go to run the installer.
There you go the error is gone and the MacOS will continue to install. The Install MacOS Application is Damaged error is fixed.

It will also save this image to your desktop.

Double click on it and you be able to preview it. Press Command + Shift + 5 again and click Capture selected window. This will allow you to select a part of your window to screen shot. This allows you to screen shot a window that is currently open. If I select the background it will screen shot that only. See the preview in the bottom right.

If you click on the options menu you can choose where you want the files to be saved. The default is to the desktop but if you want you can change this.
Other Helpful Tips
Next it’s a timer count down which gives you 5 or 10 seconds before its starts to record. Handy if you need to clear your throat or something before you start.
Under Microphone, if you want to record your voice or sound to the video you can select Microphone. Lets test it. Cool so the sound came through.
The last option I want to show you is mouse clicks. This is handy if you want to highlight where your mouse is clicking in your video. So turn it on in options record you video and I am going to click on the link on the 123myIT website. No if I stop the recording and play the video you should see a circle highlighting a click around the mouse cursor. And there it is.
One last thing, if you want to quickly trim a video simply click on the preview and then click the Trim button. Move the yellow sliders to select the part you want to keep. And then click done to save your recording. Let say I want to move that click to the beginning of the video. Double click your video and it will play you the video you Trimmed.

My After thoughts are that the MacBook Pro its a great laptop for web browsing some video editing, but still these MacBook’s lack a strong GPU for people who also want to do some Gaming. Another issue that I should mention is that heat is a problem on such s small computer as a result you will hear the fans spin up quite high when the laptop is under load. I have added these details in the video so you can hear the back ground noise that they make.

This video and article will show you how to download MacOS Sierra, which can be used at a later date to install on any Apple Mac computer.
Why would you want to download a copy of OS X Sierra? When you have an offline copy that means you can then install it on any Mac, so let’s say you wanted to sell your Mac wipe all the data that was on the local hard drive before you sold it you can go through it and reinstall the operating system with macOS Sierra.
Another good thing about having the offline copy is you can actually install it on other Mac’s, also Apple tends to update this software once a year so if you don’t download a copy at some stage and you wanted to reinstall this particular version of macOS you won’t be able to.
So to download macOS Sierra it’s straightforward all you need to do is open Safari and then go to the Apple website. Or you can use this link as a quick link. http://www.apple.com/macos/sierra/
You should then have a download or upgrade button. Click that and download the macOS Sierra app.
Once downloaded you should see the macOS Sierra app in the Applications menu. This is good news because you now have a copy of the software and its ready to be installed on to a USB.
I will do a video of how to install macOS Sierra on USB too shortly, but basically if you wanted to install this on the USB lets say you had some problem with your Mac any wanted to do a fresh install, maybe it got a virus or something like that.
What you can do is follow my video will be on the 123myit.com website on how to extract this and put it onto a USB and then I’ll show you how to basically reload a Mac with a clean install with the new version of Mac OS X Sierra.
