    Default Do I necessarily have to make a bootable macOS Sierra drive?

    Do I necessarily have to make a bootable macOS Sierra drive? Can't I just copy the installer and paste it on other Macs and run it from there?

    I don't have a spare external drive to convert it into a bootable drive.
    I only have 1 external drive and use it to store all my data.
    Is it possible to do what I mentioned above??

    Welcome to iMore!

    No you can't. It does not work that way. It is not a piece of software that you just open. It must be made as a bootable drive or it will not work.
