New to the forum. First, I appreciate all the info on here - very helpful! I have a Mini 10v on the way and am prepping my USB to install OS X (via Mechdrew's instructions).
Problem is the only Mac I have available is a Macbook Air and a Superdrive. Thus, I can't have the USB and the Superdrive hooked up at the same time (since there is only one USB slot - and can't hook up the Superdrive with a USB hub). Is there a way to copy the OSX DVD to the Mac so I then can then copy that over to the USB? I attempted to make an image of the install DVD using "Disk Utility" - which made a .dmg file. I tried to drag that over to the partitioned USB, and I got an error stating: "Restore Failure: Could not find any scan information. The source image needs to be imagescanned before it can be restored."
Anyone ever done this? I tried to search the forums, but I was just finding people wanting to use their Hackintosh to run a Superdrive ... not use it to install OS X on the Mini. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
