Default Miniscript mount/erase - 01-27-2009, 09:13 PM

I am in OSX 10.5.6 on a 32GB Runcore. I installed OSX via USB attached to my iMac. When I go to run the Miniscript, I get the typical error. When I go to Terminal, I type this and get the following return:

imini:~ vorejl$ sudo diskutil eraseVolume "HFS+" "EFI" /dev/disk0s1
Could not unmount disk for making it bootable
Error with erase: Could not unmount disk (-10000)
[ + 0%..10%..20%..30%..40%..50%..60%..70%..80%..90%..1 00% ]
Finished erase on disk disk0s1
imini:~ vorejl$

When I go back to the Miniscript I get the same old error. Is this confused for me because of 'where' my OSX install is? Is it on disk0?

restart and try that command again and rerun miniscript

it has something to do with mounting and unmounting and running that in the aml check. restart should allow that command to run then miniscript will be happy

good luck

Yeah, I tried re-booting/re-running the script about 10 times, never did work. I think the fact that I installed OSX vis USB while the runcore was attached to the Mac has confused things and given the runcore a drive ID or location that is confusing things. I gave up on that and am trying the install-via-usb method (I also tried the install via external DVD drive method but my DVD drive was crapping on me...something about an EBIOS error: Device timeout...)

We'll get there. Eventually...

When I encountered that problem I found that you need to reboot, run the eraseVolume command, and then run the miniscript. If you try to run the miniscript first, it'll fail, but then it will lock the volume so it can't be unmounted/erased/etc. But it sounds like you've already moved on.
