    Default [USB Installation] Making a USB Installation Disk ?

    Hi,

    Can anyone post instructions on creating a USB Installation disk with the iATKOS / Kalyway DVD on a 4 Gig USB Drive. With both boot (FAT) and Leopard Installation (HFS) sides on it.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    your initial problem was "/com.apple.Boot.plist not found". I struggled with the same stuff several nights by now - and the solution for me was very easy (and already mentioned in other threads): just use an external dvd-drive! I also tried to prepare one of my USB-harddisks to boot ISO-images but actually I failed because of the file size limitation on FAT32.

    When using an external DVD-drive with the same DVD's I tried before everything went fine (I write this reply on Leo4all, but Kalyway also worked before). I'm just struggling with shutdown and powermanagement (with both distributions on my Asus P5B) and also with my Apple-TV which just doesn't show up in iTunes... But that's a different story.

    My next (and for sure last try) would have been to purchase an internal SATA DVD drive... but the good old external drive did a good job!

    Ya I had read that an external SATA DVD Drive solves the problem but I dont have one. So if the DVD Drive is an issue, dont use it!
    Instead, use the USB Drive for Installation. I will not have the Space problem because I have a 4 Gig USB Drive and also a 500 Gig External HD, so I can use any of them for installation.

    But the problem is to write both partitions (FAT with Boot files) and (HFS+ with Leopard) onto the USB Drive.

    Trying to figure out how to do that.

    I only needed the external DVD for installation of the OS - when installation was finished my internal IDE drive worked fine. Maybe you can borrow one for a few hours... Regarding booting from USB-harddisk: I found a piece of software that boots an USB-hdd and allows to select an ISO-image on that USB-disk to boot. It is thought to be used instead of CD's and floppy disks. When turning a DVD into ISO the file has more than 4GB of size - and you cannot copy such a large file onto a FAT32 disk without troubles. Maybe it is an option to use multiple USB disks - one with FAT32 to boot and another one with the ISO on it... But I'm sure it is much easier to borrow an external DVD drive for a few hours... (or buy one from amazon and return it within legal RMA time).

    Well, none of my friends/relatives have an external SATA DVD ROM and I am in India so here you cant return things after you buy them.
    I guess it would be better if you post the name of the software and I will check it out.

    Thanks!

    I used ubcd (http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/). If you succeed on that I would be interested in details...

    Have fun!

    No... Tried a lot, but it seems to be a Hardware incompatibility problem..
