    Default How to save Mac OS X SL to flashdrive

    Okay, i have a pirated copy thats the real thing, i know it works.

    So dont bash me for using a pirated copy when your using a fake mac, instead of buying a real one.

    But yea i have transmac but i can only burn the .dmg(i have a .iso verison too) to a CD Rom, and the biggest dvr disc i have is 4.5.

    How would i burn the file to my flash drive to use it as a boot disc

    Default How to save Mac OS X SL to flashdrive

    Just follow the steps below:


    1. Insert your flash drive

    2. Open Disk Utility (searching in Spotlight is the easiest way to find this)

    3. Select your flash drive from the list on the left. Make sure to select the drive itself, not any partitions you may have written to it before.

    4. In the right panel, select the "Partition" screen.





    5. From the dropdown menu, select "1 Partition," then click "Options" below the partition map.

    6. Select "GUID Partition Table".Select a name for your partition and apply your changes. Keep in mind this will delete anything you have on your flash drive right now, so back it up if need be.

    7. Once this is done, move from the "Partition" screen to the "Restore" screen in Disk Utility

    8. Unmount your OSX.dmg and from the Restore Source, select (by dragging) the OS X.dmg from the left panel. Make sure this is the item called something to the effect of "Mac OS Install DVD," not "Optiarc DVD" or some other hardware title. For the destination, drag your newly-prepared partition over. Click restore.




    The whole process will take about an hour.


    I hope this can hepl you!

    Hi there,
    Thanks, Swordsman, for your contributing and I've learned quite a few things from your posts.
    I agree because I am kinda stuck to give him suggestion. "he asking for windows not the door", since using several "fake mac" I throw all of my windows out the door, or should I say they are all gone out the windows
    Beside, I don't think my 2 cents is worth his $5.00 question.
    Thanks again, Swordsman.
    Best Regards,

    lol that's funny. Now about your problem are you familiar with command line or unix? To copy your image to usb without a Mac is easy. Making it bootable is a little tougher. To just copy it to your flash you can use Transmac . Plug in your usb, open up Transmac, right click your USB and select format disc with image. Select the Snow.dmg and wait for it to format . To make it bootable you can either try using a pre-made boot disc and when asked to insert the retail disc plug-in the usb and then rescan the device. Option 2 use parted magic to install Chameleon to your USB. Hope this helps.

    ** EDIT: I have just noticed that you have spammed the board! So I will leave the info up BUT will decline any further help with this issue.

    So i know the conpect that it should work, but when i say yes format image to drive it says Error writing to Mac Disk, do i need to format the flash drive to FAT32 first or something?
