Anywhere I can get what was the last Sierra OS installer? I have a copy of what I think was the latest HS one (13.6.02) but would like to put my hands on the Sierra one. I DO have an installer for an earlier version on a thumb drive that I made with Diskmaker for Sierra...

How DID you come up with that link... I tried searching on the store but got nowhere.

Like an idiot, I tried making an installer thumb with 10.12.6 OVER the working, functioning 10.12.2 one, OF COURSE it tossed me errors and failed to make it! AND left the thumb drive is a sorry state, had to bang on it a LOT [run repair until it worked, it failed a few times] to get it "right". After doing this twice, I wrote the guy...

Yeah, Apple apparently doesn't want us searching for stuff, either that or don't want us searching for stuff.

Go to this site...

Right click on Get macOS Sierra & choose copy link, paste it into Text Edit... pasting it into Text Wrangle3r just leaves a blank!?

Very cool, played around in there, this page will let you get High Sierra AND link you to Sierra and El Capitan installer downloads!
