iso vs dmg install

Recommended Posts

Please help me get past the problem I am having trying to follow the instructions article for installing the Niresh install to a Windows (AMD64) machine.

The instructions article says to install from a USB with the DMG file - but that fails to happen, and i suspect it it because the dmg format is a compressed archive.  Should i be extracting the files and then putting them on a USB, and try again, or should i use the ISO?


Are there any instructions available for installing from the ISO?  (The comments with the file suggest it needs to be opened from a virtual machine - but I am not sure that is the case.)  Detailed instructions would help me a lot (I am a newbie as is probably obvious).

Update - I was able to create a new virtual machine (that boots using the ISO file) that opens to the Hackintosh splash screen - and gets no further.

Again - any ideas for getting to the next stage would be appreciated.
