Nice one hecabe.... I understand it fully, so google translator didn't do too badly!

So for .Trashes and .Spotlight etc - you actually have to copy those from the OS X install you want to make live yeah?

If you wish to use Boot-132, you can simply copy the contents of Boot-132 into your media and use this command to make the image

sudo  hdiutil makehybrid -o livehecabe.iso /Volumes/(Target Media)/ -iso -hfs -eltorito-boot /Volumes/(Target  Media)/isolinux.bin -no-emul-boot

If you want, after -hfs you can throw in -joilet and/or -udf, but they are unnecessary. You can also add -hfs-volume-name "Mac OS X Live DVD" -joliet-volume-name "Mac OS X Live DVD" at the end

Hi there,

If making this on a USB Pen Drive, how much space would I need on the target media?

After every part in the guide it has a section that says "code" in red, the information that was there has disappered

Hi Hecabe,

Sorry for the mix up problem, it turned out to be my browser, I had to restart for it to work as I think my system had used up nearly all its resources.

Thank you again for your help.

Hi hecabe,

Thanks a lot for the great guide. I'm wondering: is there a way to automate the "sh /etc/rc.liveboot init" part? Or do you really have to type it in every time?
