1000ft view of LiveDVD for clarification. This should be identical to USB:
Bootloader (Darwin, Boot-132 system)
--> finds mach_kernel, extensions.mkext, boot.plist -- Directly on dvd.
--> launches kernel, loads kexts.
--> kernel searches DVD for disk image(live.dmg, the desktop install) and mounts it.
Netboot/liveboot proceeds.

btw, the PXE idea is a really cool possibility. Give it a try: netboot for hackintosh awaits.

1. Prepare the target media with boot-132. There are plenty of tuts in the genius bar for this...


I need help on this point.... I can't find the right thread in the genius bar ;)

Is it possible to create this in a virtual environment like say VMWare? Hate to have to pull out a drive and go through another install just to create a live disc.

Do these instructions work for non-leopard versions of OS X, such as 10.4.x?

Thanks guys, you all are great.

You cant "Burn it" for the simple fact that you cant burn anything into a usb drive like you could a cd. you can copy tho :P

and if you refer to the first post

This method provides a way to boot from media that are read-only by diverting all writes to a ramdisk. This means it can be used to boot from a dvd(described here), USB drive, or pretty much any other media. It uses BOOT-132/Darwin as a boot loader and then exploits Apple's netboot and imageboot systems to boot from a disk image.


im sure you could have saved yourself some humiliation :P..

also, might wanna clean up your sig some so its about half that size before the mods come in and recklessly destroy it

Could someone help / add "Live DVD script part" the team of the INSTAHackintosh Tool (an shell script making OSX86 (bootable) DVD out of an orig. OS X Leo DVD( .dmg) ?

http://forum.insanel...howtopic=136138

Would be fine !
I think for the founders of the live dvd way (with shell script knowledge) it will be not heavy work.
Most shell programming (lot of work, working already since V 1.0 !!!) is done and adding the new part "Live DVD (.iso)" will be only a short step of shell programming, but big step for OSX86_humanzied fans in 2009 !

Sorry, im here since a time when people did not humiliate each other, but helped each other.
I'm sure the mods are more respectfull about any concern than you showed on your comment.

About the "burn" it was just a way of saying... even being possible to use the "repair" on disk utility to expand disk images into normal read and write drives.
About the signature, it showed a quite hard-to-run hardware wich in that time of the osx86 project (we started at 10.4.4 versions) could help people identifying what is or isnt possible to run, including the audio kext made by me for the soundcard, and the north and southbridge for identifying AGPGart compability. Anyway it isnt my hardware anymore, i have to update it.

I'm really sorry for the community seeing such a kind of answer here. Things grow, gain volume, and sometimes loose quality.

Hello to all

I was just wondering if somebody else could write a definitive guide on how to make a LIVE DVD, and include what the person will need to make their own.

Thank you for your time

All the best

Same here Cris... It's driving me nuts now. I'm no n00b, but this has me stumped.

I've made about 4 coasters so far.

I've planted the correct files from the GALAXY_BOOT disc (Boot132), but I can't get the DVD to boot for the life of me!

Hi Cris900 & adamsweeting,

I have just noticed at the INSTAHackintosh thread that STLVNUB has implemented the creation of LIVEDVD into his tool, if you look here you will see his post.

http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?s=&showtopic=129593&view=findpost&p=1027480

We will all soon be able to make this without any problems.

All the best

I am interested in this live DVD since my system is AMD and I want to test another system that it is Intel based and I don't have the external HD in order to install there and then make a Live DVD.

Is there a working image of the Live DVD?

ToroLoco, I might be wrong, but I think there is no 'working image' of the Live DVD because every Hackintosh is unique.

You need a configuration that works on your Hack. The Live DVD that I build on my Intel Mobo Hackintosh won't run on the Gigabyte Hackintosh that you own.

Perhaps you can look thru the .sigs and find someone who has the same mobo, CPU, video card, etc, that you have, and contact them for guidance.
