Description:

BootDisk Utility is intended to make a external bootable USB Flash Disk by installing to it special Data set (MBR, PBR sectors and Data files) of EFI-based Clover bootloader (and may be Chameleon bootloader).

Boot:

In the root directory of the boot disk are numbered boot files. At boot time, for 3 seconds when the flashing line at the top left of the screen, press the corresponding key:

  • boot (Clover 64bit-default) - no key
  • boot3 (Clover 32bit - in the last Clover revisions - not included) - 3
  • boot6 (Clover 64bit - the same default) - 6
  • boot7 (that includes BiosBlockIO driver for RAID controllers, JMicron, NForce and other non-Intel SATA/ATA/SCSI etc.) - 7


Manuals and Installation:

  • Open the Configuration Window and select DL(Download Latest Clover rev. or one of the selected from drop-down list) or select Local and set Path to Local Repository with Saved BDU-ready Clover zip-distr. 
  • Select Format the flash drive into two partitions - 1st Clover, 2nd to deploy a disk image (or final distribution MACOSX installed system).
  • Distro, of course, must meet all the requirements for installation on PC (see related topics on installation).
  • The image can be saved by itself BDU, to share with friends.
  • Download the any distribution (*. Dmg), unpack from menu Tools and restore the file with hfs extension to the 2nd flash partition.
  • Partition size should be no smaller then original hfs file.
  • Prepare your Clover config, as described in the relevant forum threads.
  • BDU limitations: For security reasons, completely off the write to all partitions of the Windows system drive. With the other drives you can try to play.
  • In test mode, you can work with non-USB (only MBR) disks.
  • The info provided is not more than 4 primary partition (Extended partitions are not shown in detail - it makes no sense).
  • Attention: If you select Format - All information (all partitions) on the flash drive will be destroyed. Therefore, please save your important partitions to a file.

How to manually:

With this app would people still have to access to OSX to convert a Mountain Lion image to USB?

Thanks. NSCXP2005

Hi,

I tried BDU but can't see anything on my screen after the initial countdown. My monitor complains about the resolution; says it must be something like "1900x600". How can I fix this? Thanks.

In the root directory of the usb disk are numbered boot files.

When you boot the usb and a line flashes for 3 seconds in the upper left of the screen press...

  • boot (Clover 64bit-default) - no key
  • boot2 (Chameleon) - 2
  • boot3 (Clover 32bit - in the last Clover revisions - not included) - 3
  • boot6 (Clover 64bit - the same default) - 6
