Method 1: Disable System Integrity Protection

Starting with macOS 10.11 (El Capitan) Apple has introduced System Integrity Protection (SIP). The steps shows you how to configure your machine by partially disabling the new setting, so that you can run NoteBurner.

Before you do this, it is important to get informed about what System Integrity Protection is, and what it means to turn it off. If you decide to partially disable SIP, you will be able to install and run NoteBurner as before.

1. You must boot into the Recovery OS. You do this by restarting your machine, and holding COMMAND + R until the Apple logo appears. Then select Terminal from the Utilities menu.
