How do I create install media for Mac OS X?

If you don't have it already, first download Mac OS X from the App Store. Do not immediately install it, however, as that will then remove the installer from your computer.

Once you have the installer, follow the instructions for creating install media in Apple's Create a bootable installer for OS X.

You could also use the Diskmaker X free utility to automatically prepare your bootable media.
