    Default Need help making a bootable USB to install XxX hachintosh.

    Hello. if anyone could help me do this I'll be very greateful.

    My dvd drive is busted so I'm trying to use a 8gb Kingston thumb drive to install XxX 10.5.6 Leopard distro but I can't seem to catch a break.

    First I tried unetbootin and choose the image, after 3 hours or so i did its thing but when I booted from the usb the unetbootin loader said corrupt kernel or something like that

    so then a friend passed me these instructions:

    You need to make the USB drive bootable. Follow step 1 (and only step 1!) on this link to make it bootable: Flashing the BIOS

    Now you'll need to mount the .ISO on your computer, if you use Windows XP or Vista, the easiest way to do this is to download a trial of PowerISO (Google for it) and copy all the files inside the ISO onto your USB.

    Now stick the USB in your AA1, and reboot it.
    On the BIOS Startup, press F12 and select "USB HDD" from the list, if it's not there then reboot again but press F2 at the BIOS screen and press the Left arrow to the "Boot" tab, now move "USB HDD" so it is above the device labeled "IDE0" (which is your internal HDD). You can put it back afterwards, don't worry.


    Now, you should get into the xXx Installer, I've no idea how it works or how to do it via xXx so you'll have to work that out yourself.
    I did it but I don't know what to do next; once again I get into the unetbootin loader but obviously it just goes into the freeDOS menu. I assume I need to put an special command in the options prior to loading the freeDOS menu.

    Please help

    there must be a way to install this thing from an usb drive.

    Hmm I used the HP format utility and seems that it worked but when I try to load the boot file it says the very same thing that unetbootin said "invalid or corrupt kernel" same with mach_kernel. maybe my iso is corrupted or I'm doing something wrong.
    I'm going to re download it, also download iDeneb_v1.6 and try again with unetbootin.

    I had to use Hirens boot cd to format and make a mac install. I use Iportable_Snow Leopard. or use a mac. I install iportable on a usb hard drive, then copied iportable.dmg to it for installations or repair.
