Making a bootable USB on a Mac

  1. hdiutil convert -format UDRW -o bootimage.img sourceimage.iso
  2. diskutil list (look for the volume that's the same size as your USB device. It'll be "external".)
  3. diskutil partitionDisk /dev/diskX 1 "Free Space" "unused" "100%" (use diskX from the list!)
  4. sudo dd if=bootimage.img of=/dev/diskX bs=1m
