Hi guys,

There are many ways to make a working Bootable USB mac osx installer...

I'll start with the Windows Tut...

1)
1) Downloads: Download PowerISO.exe link removed No link.... No warez --Lacedaemon
2) Installing: Install poweriso, it's crack
3) Bootabling : Click on Open and select your DMG or ISO file then click on tools--->Create a bootable USB
4) Device: Select your device to install it on
5) Start: Click on Start and wait until it finishes ( for 4.5 GB it takes about 3/5 minutes....)
6) Finish!: Congratulations! Now you have a bootable USB media... please if it won't work by selecting F12 at boot prompt, modify the BIOS to boot the USB before everything!

2) ONLY IF ABOVE WON'T WORK!
1)File -------> open ------> select your dmg/iso file
2)Right Click on usb device ------> Format with disk image and select your disk image
3) Start format and wait...
4) You now should have your mac osx bootable USB!


Mac... It's Easier :)

1) Programs: Open Disk Utility
2) Selections: Select the USB you want to make bootable
3) Clicks: Click on Erase -----> Format: Mac OS Journaled Name: whateveryouwant
4) Wait: Wait until it finishes erase....
5) Selections: Click (on the left) your USB media you have just formatted then click Restore
6) Clicks: For Source: Click on Image and select your DMG or ISO image For Destination : drag the USB media from the left to the textbox
7) Clicks: Click on Restore and wait..... it may take up to 10 minutes...
8) Finishes: If you note that your file isn't bootable then download chameleon bootloader or chimera one and install it (with all customizations you need ) to your USB media....




Hope it helps!

Don't hesitate to contact me!

Cheers Cascio97

ive already done that but it doesn't work, ill try now to make an iso file of that dmg file and then making a bootable usb...

in "create bootable usb" the label "write method" only has the option 'write raw image file to usb' can this be? anyway now ive convert the dmg file into an iso file and ill try to make a new bootable usb hope it works...

i don't know i have a sony vaio laptop ati 4570 512mb 4gb ram 320 gb hard drive ive already made a primary partition of 30 gb in bios ive changed the boot method 1: external drives like usb 2: optical drive 3: hard drive and ive set usb boot to 'enable' in bios , i cannot change the hard drive options IDE to SATA (i think i have sata) because in vaio bios system it's protected maybe that's the problem i don't know, but from dvd it boots but stucks by pci configuration and in usb it doesn't boot but now ive made the iso file and i'll restart the laptop..

no IT DOES NOT WORK :(, but wait I made the bootable usb (TDK 16gb) on my own laptop, did i have to make it on my other pc and then boot it from my laptop?

my USB drive is formatted with FAT32 and I have tried to reinstall powerISO but it still does not show my USB Drive.

I can open it in Explorer.

Is there an alternative tool i can use? I have both the dmg and iso file to burn

Try with Transmac ------> Download TransMac (free edition for 15 days then download a crack if you need 4ever) :)

1)File -------> open ------> select your dmg/iso file
2)Right Click on usb device ------> Format with disk image and select your disk image
3) Start format and wait...
4) You now should have your mac osx bootable USB!

Ok, So I have got PowerISO and when I try to put it on my USB using that bootable option it makes my flash drive in an uknown filesystem that my system doesn't recognize! and I have iATKOS when I try to open it using PowerISO it says its only like 800KB!? Why? I tried extracting it and putting it it finishs in like a second and it isn't bootable!? Even though the ISO is 3.5 GB after extraction its like 450 KB. I download Kalyway same thing happens, it has like two files in it none are big! , on virtual machine it works and boots, even if I mount the iso and use VMware to use my virtual drive it still works! So maybe the ISO needs like a special tool to extract, when I extract it is only 450 KB.

I have Gateway NV 51b02h ( AMD x64 )


------UPDATE------
Using Transmac, I can see the content of the ISO and the size is correct. But Im not sure if its bootable... there are no bootfiles. there are like a MAC OSX Installer.app and .DSstore and other mac application things. What do I do, please HELP!! I can extract the content if the ISO( well actually it

-----Update-------
Okay, I know I'm a noob and all, I understand what is happening. I'm just going to stop being cheap and grab myself some DVDs . Turns out windows can't read that ISO because HFS File system which explains why Transmac can read it! But now I have a bigger problem. I tried running OSX from virtual machine so I can partition my Flash drive and install from there, but after partitioning was done, I unplugged my USB and Windows wouldn't detect it! I then deleted the partition which BTW mac can still detect, and then unvirtualized the USB so my PC can use it, I would get the sound that something has been plugged but I can't see it in Computer Folder... (My USB Drive has the light turned on so it is functioning.


----Update------
NVM, working again. I used EASEUS Parition manager thingy and I fixed it up!

I did 1)

and at 2)The instructions aren't quite clear as to if you must right click in explorer or in PowerISO there is no "Format with disk image and select your disk image" and also the USB does not show up in PowerISO(and neither do any other drives) from what you see in the following images

Attached File  USB.JPG   18.96KB   39 downloads
I have formatted my USB multiple times using steps in this forum and others along with Transmac. the best possible way to do this is through an OSX system but unfortunately I don't have one available so I would really appreciate anyone's help or ideas to get things rolling.

Best Regards
Nelson :)
