Re: Install using 8GB SDHC card in USB Reader? - 03-25-2009, 06:08 PM
I believe that a formatted 8gb card comes out to just over 7 gigs. When I used transmac to create an OS X install disk partition the DMG had to be decompressed resulting in a ~7.5 gig image. You may be able to strip some things off of this after the fact though and maybe it'll still work but I am not sure. You can definitely boot the bootup iso from an SD card in an SD card reader though (I did just that), you just might have to do a bit of tweaking to get the OS X install disk to fit on the 8 gig SD card.
