You may need to change your security settings to open a non-App Store download.

@realadain El Capitan is not available to download via the Mac appstore. IF you didn't downloaded it while it was the latest OS X, you cannot download it legitimately. If you did get it originally, it would be in the Mac App store under the "Purchases" section where you can re-download it. The current OS X is "High Sierra".

Don't download 3rd party programs to create bootable USB.

There is in fact a way to do it natively.

See the section on this link using the "createinstallmedia" terminal command (section 2).

Hi @realadain, I would recommend you to use DiscMaker X! to create a usb bootable,

find a mac and install the application, follow the instruction on the screen to create the usb installer.

I don't know what year iMac you have, but you can start up from the repair partition or a blank formatted drive and do an internet installation. This procedure will install the original operating system to the machine. Any system prior to the original will not work on your machine.

To use Recovery Mode, follow these instructions:

Shut down your Mac.

Press the Power button

Immediately press the command (cloverleaf) key and R together.

Make sure you're connected to the internet through Wi-Fi. ...

Select Install Mac OS X, then click Continue.

Wait.
