Default OSX, Runcore and Transmac possible? - 07-07-2009, 07:00 PM

I do not have access to a Mac. I have a .dmg of OSX that I am going to be installing. I tried to copy and format an 8GB USB but had the issue of it being a bit too small. I have now hooked up my Runcore to my laptop via USB and I currently am formatting and writting the image to the Runcore. Is this going to work? I know, I probably should have looked into it before I starting formating, but oh well. Any tips?

By the way, this definetely did not work. I did finally get my OSX install going though.

Mount .dmg
Image .dmg to your 8GB USB drive

Format a 128mb+ usb disk
Download syslinux
Extract syslinux
Open cmd and navigate to syslinux
syslinux -ma x: x=128mb+ USB drive letter
Mount Dellminiboot123.iso
Copy Dellminiboot123 files to USB disk, make sure not to overwrite any files

Put the 128MB USB in the left USB port
Put the 8GB USB drive in the right USB port
Make sure legacy USB is off in the BIOS
Restart your mini boot to USB
When it prompts you to boot hit enter
When it ask what drive, I had to use 81, but try 80 if that doesn't work

After you are done, you will need to get DellEFI installed. As far as I have made it. I know the guides are around here, but they all seem extremely complex and it really wasn't.

Anyone know a good newsreader?
