how to create bootable dvd from osxmavericks.dmg

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I am trying to create a bootable iso from niresh osx-mavericks.dmg.

I have tried usb install method, but get "still waiting for root device"

Tried the usbbusfix flag among others. Used different flash drives etc. Followed the guide by niresh but didnt work. So i need to make a boot dvd.

Magiciso stops at 24%.

Poweriso says dmg in invalid. Same with ultraiso. Tried transmac also

I do have a working mavericks intel pc to use. I really could use some help. Thanks

If you still want to try some other programs there is:





What would probably be the upmost ensured method would be to do it from Disk Utility on a Mac. Essentially you can convert the DMG to CDR to ISO. Here is a link that has a tutorial with pictures on this process.

I tried diskutility method but did not use the terminal method.

Will try it and get back to you.
