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.

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?

May 15, 2012

i have made a bootable lion hard drive before and it worked fine. But after the 10.7.4 update i am unable to make another one. When i follow the usual steps

4-restore drive (external hard drive) and drag the lion file to the 'source' area and the external hard drive to the 'destination' area.

5- When i hit restore it does everything but at the end it says something like "failed, invalid argument'?

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.

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?

Mac Pro :: Stop Original Disk Being Bootable?

Dec 8, 2010

I have recently added an SSD drive to my system and cloned the original main drive. As I make use of bootcamp deleted the bootcamp partition from the original drive and plan to use it just as a data disk (it already has my data on it). Disk A:Mac OSWindows 7 (in bootcamp)Disk B:Mac Data diskThe trouble is I am now being presented with 3 disk options on start-up as both the SSD and the original disk OS X instances are showing (as well as the Windows). How do I stop the original disk being bootable? I have taken a look at fdisk and diskutil which both show that the original disk has the bootable flag set - but I have no idea how to remove the setting.

OS X :: Boot Camp - No Bootable Disk

Jun 16, 2009

I am running Leopard on a 1st gen macbook. I used boot camp assistant to partition the disk, and then went to install windows. I didn't back up bc I am an ass. Then I got to the part where I had to choose a partition. I reformatted the Boot Camp partition to NTFS. I then realized that the partition is too small. I have to get back into Leopard to fix the partition problem. Now, I can't reboot to Leopard. Holding alt or the apple key or both does not prevent the windows dvd from booting. When I eject the DVD, it tells me "no bootable disk." I never installed Vista. I don't understand how I could have overwritten anything or caused any data loss.
