Intel Mac :: Disk Utility Can't Repair HD - Possible To Create New Image To Backup?

Jun 7, 2012

Two days ago my computer died and I haven't been able to get past the Apple screen since. I've tried starting in Safe mode, etc. that did not work. I just started up using my installation disk and got into Disk Utility. It says it cannot repair the disk and that I should back up as many files as possible and reformat the disk. How am I supposed to back up if I can't start up? I am currently creating a new image of the HD to an external drive but my question is if Disk Utility couldn't repair the disk, with the external drive copy also be problematic? How can I tell before I reformat the whole thing and start over?

OS X V10.4 :: Hdiutil Create Srcdevice Fails To Create Image

Feb 1, 2012

I want to create a disk image of a Mac drive (.dmg file).I figured that it might not be a good idea to try and image a live disk, so I unmounted it (the user dragged the disk icon to the eject icon), and I confirmed it was unmounted by looking at /Volumes. To be clear here, this isn't the boot volume, that is /dev/disk0./dev/disk1 is an internal drive - as it happens it's the original drive for this OSX 10.4 G5, AND /Volumes/HITACHI is the mount point for an external USB drive.I have tried this twice.On both occassions, things seemed to go well, but after a few minutes (about 10 - 20 minutes), I observed that the target file on /Volumes/HITACHI stopped growing, then a bunch of unpleasant stuff started to happen:

* I did lsof /Volumes/HITACHI/MacHD_20120201.dmg and found the PID of the diskimage binary, ps waux showed it was doing nothing (CPU% was 0.0). This indicates a stuck process to me.

* The hdutil command stopped producing '.'

* I could not cancel the hduitl command

* I could not rm the MacHD_20120201.dmg file

* I could not ls the /Volumes/HITACHI directory

* unlink also hung

A little further into this, the Mac became unresponsive. I observed that the disk was now mounted again (grrr!). As a work around I switched the USB drive off and on, and Mac came good - all my terminals started to respond, the GUI responded for the user.My workaround has been to use CCC to make a clone of the disk - but I don't like this because I think .dmg files are much more convenient (for a start, now that I've used CCC I can't use the USB drive for anything else).

* Is my methodology wrong? Do I really need to umount the /dev/disk1

* Can you disable finder from automounting an internal hard drive (I am particularly interested in this)

Intel Mac :: Unable To Create “filename.dmg” (error -60008)

May 22, 2012

I’ve used Disk Utilities awesome capabilities many times, but am now running into my first real problem. I am trying to create a 100 GB new blank disk image, using the “Mac OS Extended (Journaled) option for format, 256-bit AES encryption, a single partition-Apple Partition Map, and Image Format as read/write disk image. When I implement this, it asks for the AES password then repeatedly crashes, albeit in slightly different ways each time. The most informative was a Unable to create “filename.dmg” (error -60008) message. I can’t find anything explanatory about this in Google I’m wondering if this has something to do with my upgrade to Lion (OS 10.7.4) yesterday from Snow Leopard. This error occurs on both my home and work iMacs. It seems to reliably occur about 1/2 way through typing in my password. The error occurs whether I use 128 or 256 AES encryption. There is more than adequate space on the hard drive I am attempting to place this image on. Disk Utility is version 12.1.1 (353) and all is running on a 2.66 GHz Intel Core i5 iMac.

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: How To Create A Disk Image Of The Boot Drive

Apr 14, 2012

Does anyone know if it is possible to create a disk image of the boot drive? I have tried / boot from DVD, then go to Disk Utility, file/ create new image from disk but the process stops imediatlly with a. cant unmount drive, b. drive is busy, c. in use how the drive is in use is not sensable, as it should  be as 'just a drive' This is on a laptop with OSX 10.5.8 / 32gig hd, 2 gig ram, just in case it matters. I thought about timemachine, but the laptop sometimes requires a complete reinstall, that is a long process, install + upgrade + redo all the other programs +

Hardware :: Time Machine Error - Disk Image Cannot Be Mounted?

Oct 29, 2009

My files were backing up for about a day, had 75gb of 100gb done and then my power went out. It cancelled out, and then when it came back on I tried to resume it. It started to backup 25gb, which I'm assuming is just the last 25gb that it had to do. Anyway, it did that for a while then stopped, and now when I try to backup, it says: "Time Machine Error: The backup disk image could not be mounted."

How do I backup the rest of my stuff? Do I have to start over? And is there a way to make it transfer faster? I mean, there's no way to directly connect it to your computer, is there? Also, in the Time Machine settings thing, it says "Available: 839.8GB of 929.5GB. Does that mean it has 839gb of my 929gb backed up? What happened to the other 71gb? I just want my stuff to be backed up, why is this so complicated?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Create A Virtualbox Bootable Image File From A Bootable Usb Flash Drive

Jun 1, 2012

I created a bootable usb drive on a windows pc using windows 7 to install windows 8 preview and want to make a copy to install in virtualbox on my imac and burn to a dvd that will work on pc. 

I've tried using disk utility to create an image and get a file ESD-USB.dmg, but virtualbox won't boot a dmg file. 

I tried converting it in the terminal with: 

hdiutil convert -format UDRO -o windows8.iso ESD-USB.dmg 

but the resulting file was windows8.iso.dmg. I changed the name to windows8.iso, but even so, virtualbox complains it's unbootable. 

I tried the terminal command: 

dd if=/dev/disk4 of=windows8.iso 

but virtualbox complained that it's not bootable. 

I tried the terminal command: 

cat /dev/disk4 > windows8.iso 

but virtualbox complained that it's not bootable.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Time Machine Error 'Create New Backup'

May 23, 2012

After updating to Lion server, I moved my Drobo over and setup Time Machine

Many users are prompeted to reuse or create a new backup.

The problem is I log in with credentials of 'USER A', and on the dialog it lists another 'USER B', userb.sparsebundle as the file to reuse.  

I recently had a iMac hard drive die, and i tired to use the time machine on the server, with 'USER A' credentials, i got 4 listings and none of them were 'USER A' 

I check the drobo and 'USER A''s sparsebundle is there. I have tried changeing permissions to read the sparsebudle, but the bundle is a 250k file, not a diskimage of the files even.  

How do i resolve this problem of the wrong users coming up on "reuse or create new backup"? 

How do i access the lost sparsebundle that i cannot log into to get the files for the user that needs them?

OS X :: Create Another Partition External Drive Using Disk Utility - HPFS + Error

Apr 28, 2010

I have a Lacie 1TB external drive. I'm trying to create another partition on it using Disk Utility so that I can use one of the partitions for Time Machine. When I go to add another partition, or even just resize the existing one, I get an error saying drive must be HPFS+ with Journaling enabled. It is. I've seen reference to this error in searches, but have not found a solution. Is there a fix for this, or another tool that I can use to re-partition my drive without wiping out existing partition? I have about 450GB worth of data on the drive that I might be able to store somewhere else temporarily, I would just prefer not to have to go through that....

I have been unable to create an open directory replica from an open directory master.I have created an open directory master in Mavericks and added DNS, file sharing and users etc. I can connect, log in, all is good.I now want to create a replica on another machine for redundancy, yet I have been unable to do so. I have been able to diagnose through the terminal on each machine and get no errors except the following from the intended replica machine: Both Machines are Mac Mini servers, raided drives.

Replica has 8Gb RAM, Master has 16Gb  macsvr1:~ admin$ sudo /usr/sbin/slapconfig -preflightreplica diradmin+0000 Error; Unable to determine the master’s software version  The rest of the terminal looks like this. Open Directory Master  Primary address     =

I can verify each machine version and all DNS is fine. Both machines are in identical OS systems. 10.9.4 Server 3.1.2. Network is good as I can ping each machine from the other. ssh is enabled on both yet still i'm unable to create a replica.

Windows On Mac :: Fusion 3.1.1 BSOD "Bad Image Checksum" Error And Reboot Loop?

Aug 16, 2010

My parents are having the exact problem described in this thread (and I've been tasked with remote tech support): [URL] Upon startup, WinXP gives them a BSOD reboot loop while indicating that a DLL file is possibly corrupt. Booting in Safe Mode won't work, and reverting to an earlier snapshot merely delays the problem by 24 hours or so.

The obvious and ideal solution would be to boot into Repair mode from the install disc and copy the clean DLL to replace the damaged copy. The problem is that, according to the thread, I'll need to first get Fusion to accept a floppy image of SCSI adapter drivers for me to even be able to enter Repair mode. The link for that image was broken in the thread, but a little Googling directed me here: [URL]
