OS X :: Way To Make A Bootable Device?

May 17, 2009

I would like to make my usb memory bootable. Is it any way to get the drive to show up in startup items in sys.prefs? I have tried with fdisk, hdiutil and diskutil but have not been able to select my drive. I thought it was going to happen with fdisk. Typing fdisk /dev/disk1 gives me this.

OS X :: Can Make A Bootable External Hard Drive

Aug 16, 2009

I was installing a software update on my mother's Intel iMac. While installing, the iMac told me that there was a problem and to contact the software manufacturer. When I went to reboot, it would not. All I get is the universal sign for stop (circle with a 45 degree angle line through it). My mother has no backups whatsoever. She needs her information. I am in need of a safe way to retrieve her information.I have tried the basic help from Apple's site--nothing worked. A friend told me that I might be able to boot the computer from a bootable external hard drive and pull the information off that way.

OS X :: Make A Windows 7 Bootable USB With Snow Leopard?

Sep 8, 2009

I want to install Windows 7 on a friends' computer, which at present, has no working OS on it. The tricky part is her optical drive is totally kaput. I've been able to find some instructions on how to make live USBs in leopard (like these), but so far, none of them have been bootable by a PC.

When I try to use the disk utility's "restore" function, I get an error message saying "Could not validate source - error 254"

I've googled around for other possible solutions, but haven't turned up anything. Has anybody here been able to figure this out?

OS X :: Make A Bootable Clone Of The Whole System Discs?

May 19, 2010

I have an old G4 system with Pro Tools recording software and related Plug-Ins installed and running flawlessly. Bad news is that the drive is about 9 yrs old and I want to make a backup before selling it to someone so they can have a bootable backup drive instead of having to re-install the whole system if the internal drive craps out.

The OS is 9.2.2. It is not classic and has no version of OS X on it t all.

How do I make a bootable clone of the whole system discs, apps an all, to an external firewire drive?

OS X :: Backup Strategy - Make Bootable Clone Of Internal Drive?

Oct 8, 2009

I am planning to buy a 500GB laptop harddrive, put it in an enclosure, and use CarbonCopyCloner to make a bootable clone of my Mac's internal 500GB Drive. This way, if there is a problem with my internal drive, I can just swap in the cloned drive and boot from that, never missing a step. However, I am wondering if this is a good strategy. What if something else fails on my mac like the motherboard - would I be able to boot my cloned drive on another mac?

I finally get to open my first iMac in a few days and the excitement is killing me. So I decided to sign up for one of the workshops at the local Apple store. The girl told the group that Time Machine would make a perfect mirrored image of the hard drive in case of catastrophic failure. I asked her if this image was a boot-able clone and she said yes.

Windows On Mac :: How To Make A Restored Bootcamp Partition Active/bootable

Dec 23, 2009

I upgraded my HDD, I simply used disk Utility to move data for the OSX HFS partition.

I tried to use Winclone to move but that didn't work too well, plus there is a unnecessary image step, so I ended up moving using disk utility again which again went fine.

The only problem is that rather than creating the partition through bootcamp assistant, I created it straight in diskutility and windows is not bootable.

I tried using fdisk to fix but that didn't work.

The partition table is GUID based and the windows partition is NTFS.

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.

PowerPC :: Macbook Bootable Backup - Bootable On Non Intel Based?

Mar 4, 2010

I just recently purchased a Macbook, and I created a bootable backup of the system. The macbook boots from the backup, but when I try to boot from the backup on our G5 and also our Powerbook G4 it will not work. The G5 does not even see the bootable partitions I created, and the G4 sees them, but when I select the partition to boot from, the computer just restarts and boots from the Powerbook hardrive. We are having to send the Macbook back for some small power issues, and we need a bootable backup of this sytem that works. Does this have anything to do with the fact that the Macbook is an intel based computer and the Powerbook G4 is not? Also, the macbook is running Snow Leopard, and the Powerbook is on Tiger.

OS X :: How To Create A Bootable Cd

Oct 5, 2010

I purchased an app online, and seeing as they had an option to download the app, I downloaded it. (I do believe I still have available to me the option of the cd to be shipped, but I'm not sure) Now I need to use it in a way that requires it to be booted off a cd... The software downloaded was in a disk image format. Are there any specific instructions/steps I need to take in order to ensure that I produce a bootable cd? I'd hate to waste a perfectly good CD-R by a stupid mistake of making it non-bootable.

OS X :: How To Create A Bootable CD/DVD From A DMG

Nov 21, 2008

I am trying to figure out what the best way is to create a bootable DVD frm a DMG file?

Upon first purchasing Leopard 10.5 way back when it came out, I decided to back up the disk on my computer by creating a Disk Image. Turns out it was a good move because now that I need the disc, it seems to have picked up a big scratch on it's surface, and it simply refuses to mount at this point...

I can use either Toast or Disk Utility to accomplish this task (or the terminal if absolutely necessary, but I would really prefer using one of the GUIs I've just mentioned). I was hoping someone would be gracious enough to provide me with instructions on what would be the best way to create a bootable DVD from this DMG file.

MacBook Pro :: External HD Not Bootable

Oct 11, 2010

I used a program called carbon copy cloner to make a clone of my father's mac book pro onto an external hd usb. I already erased the laptop so I can't go back too it for another copy so I'm stuck.

Anyhow, all the data copied over nicely. However it said it will make the drive bootable. But it does not. I partitioned GUID so it should boot cuz intel macs can boot usb if partitioned GUID. But it won't boot on the macbook pro intel or my mac mini intel. Both core duo (not 2 duo). And I can't reinstall because the dvd is 10.5.0 and we have 10.5.8 on the external.

Unless there is a way to remove 5.8 and go back to zero but I don't hink so. I did Disk first aid and it says the drive is fine. It is brand new. And it won't let me verify or repair permissions. Don't know what to do.

OS X :: No Bootable Device After Bootcamp?

Nov 21, 2008

I tried to install ubuntu with bootcamp on a different hard drive. Something happened and now when I turn on my computer it says no bootable devices. It doesn't even see my OSX hard drive. I tried booting up my computer and holding down option. It doesn't work. I have a wireless microsoft keyboard. Is it not letting me hold down option because the computer finds the wrieless keyboard to late. Some one said u have to hold down the option key before the mac sounds happens. The keyboard lights don't come on till after that. Should I get a USB keyboard? I have to press the start button on the keyboard to act as the option key when I'm in osx. Would the computer know that the start key is the option key on boot up?

OS X :: Bootable Disk Utility DVD

Feb 19, 2009

Been searching for the answer to this question, so far to no avail. How can I create a bootable disk with Disk Utility on it? I need to run Disk Utility to repair my main startup disk on my G5 tower, which is running tiger 10.4.11. I do not have access to the original system installation disks for this computer. I also have an early Intel Dual Core tower running Tiger 10.4.11. That machine has Toast Titanium version 8.0.1. Also no access to the system installation disks.
