man hdiutil

hdiutil mount someimage.dmg -shadow

Learn to read manuals. learn to use google. Stop polluting web with questions when possible.

The "instructions" included are worthless. They only contain a handful of lines of text which seem to just consist of file names. :(

@pcwizard7: You are supposed to restore BaseSystem to a USB, then copy the Packages folder then copy the files. You aren't supposed to overwrite the DMG.

Hello guys. :)

Thank you for the patch. I am trying to install ML while keeping my existing Windows 7 installation, but I don't understand this part of the instructions:

1. Restore BaseSystem.dmg to HFS partition.

2. Copy InstallESD.dmg/mach_kernel to BaseSystem.dmg/mach_kernel

3. Remove BaseSystem.dmg/System/Installation/Packages

4. Copy InstallESD.dmg/Packages to BaseSystem.dmg/System/Installation/Packages

5. Boot to BaseSystem.dmg to install Mac OS X.

I replaced the two files within my USB U{censored} installation without problem, but I guess this isn't enough, because I still cannot make ML to install on the NTFS partition. I've replaced the two files (OSInstall and OSInstall.mpkg) in the U{censored} installer, but when I start the installer I cannot do the repartitioning on the partition I've created. The only option is to erase the whole hard disk and I don't want this. I want to keep my existing partitions.

Thank you in advance! :)

Can someone please help me? Ive followed these steps:

1. Restore BaseSystem.dmg to HFS partition.

2. Copy InstallESD.dmg/mach_kernel to BaseSystem.dmg/mach_kernel

3. Remove BaseSystem.dmg/System/Installation/Packages

4. Copy InstallESD.dmg/Packages to BaseSystem.dmg/System/Installation/Packages

5. Replaced the patch files

6. Tried to boot from the flash drive.

But when im booting from the drive it reaches the white screen with the apple logo and then it immediately restarts.

@DigitriX: You can't install OS X on an NTFS partition. You will have to format the partition as Mac OS X Extended (Journaled), which you can do from Disk Utility's Erase tab (do this on your partition, NOT your hard drive itself, just the partition). This patch simply lets you install on an MBR partition table (which most PCs use), not NTFS file systems.
