Restore Niresh Mojave Not Writing to USB Drive

Recommended Posts

Ayalas

I download the Niresh-Mojave.dmg and also Restore Niresh Mojave.pkg.

Both are on the same folder and I formated the pen drive as said in the guide (inside a guest mac el capitain).


When I run the Restore Niresh Mojave.pkg (choosing the usb drive as target), the package runs for a few seconds then gives a success message.

When I check usb drive, it only have a few mbs filled. I also tried to boot from this usb drive and it shows the clover but does not show the Niresh installer.
 

Any tips on why the restore niresh is giving a success message but no writing the niresh on the usb drive?

@Ayalas Try to restore with Disk Utility.

What is the size of the USB?

The USB is 16gb.

I tried this exact process with the High Sierra and everything went ok, but with Mojave it does not work. Here is some images:

EDIT:
I think I joined the 'fake usb' team.

This drive which I have for many years don't seen to have the real 16gb.

I tried another one (same that had high sierra) and the restore worked.

I tried with different usb drives - Kingston/Sandisk 16/32GB but the restore does not work for me. As others mentioned the package runs and completes within some seconds without restoring the dmg to the usb. Going to try the Transmac route.
